Go to the Jeep dealership, they sell a T wiring harness that plugs into the passanger side. It is very simple to install, you will need to connect the ground wire to the chasis. Basically you just reach under behind the rear tire close to the bumper pull apart the connector then put the splitter in and reconnect the original wiring.

Yes you do. They make piggyback taps so it's a snap.

Wiring diagram for dodge 2005 pick-up tail lights,need to hook up 4 prong trailer light plug in


You are aware that you can buy an adapter that will plug in to harness under truck at back and will allow you to plug a 4 prong directly in to it. No cutting or splicing necessary that way. Any RV shop, as well as most auto parts stores now stock them.

Have 4 prong trailer plug with 5 wires how to hook up extra wire


The 4 prong plug will have 5 wires attached to it.
The white wire is the ground and is attached to the trailer frame near the front. There will be two brown wires and one goes down each side of the trailer. These wires will have a connection at the side marker lights near the front of the fenders. They will then continue to the tail lights. The light bar in the center is also connected to the brown wire.
The yellow wire at the plug is for the left stoplight and the green is for the right stoplight. One of the wires out of the taillights will be brown and the other wire will not match the color of the harness wire.

Which colour wire to use to hook up a trailer for a Kia Carnival 2000,trailer leads are yellow, green,black,brown,red,white and blue(no connection). just want to know which lead goes to which in the Kia?...


Hi there,

Here is a cheat sheet I compiled that you will find very helpful:


Plug Types/Application
7 Way - RV Trailers, Horse and Utility Trailers
6 Way - Horse, Stock and Utility
4 Way - Utility Trailers

Columns are Color, Function, Mark on the plug.

Seven wire Trailer plugs
:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Yellow = Left turn/Brake - 5
Green = Right turn Brake - 6
Orange or Purple (not both) = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7

Recreational Vehicle:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Green = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Red = Left turn/Brake - 5
Brown = Right turn Brake - 6
Yellow = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7


Six wire trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Not used -
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards
Mike

2001 Sportage Trailer wire connections


brown to the tail lights. yellow to left turn signal. green to right turn signal. this is a basic 3 wire hook-up i use all the time w/4wire connectors for all trailers. white wire is not used. ground is established when you hook to the ball.
to find the correct wire to splice to, use a testor (has a clip to the bare wire, and a sharp point to the truck frame). using a needle, push it through a wire to rear light harness. turn on the turn signal. check if the connection is the blinker, testing until you have the blinker wire. the tail lights can be attached to the license plate wire. brakes and blinkers use same wire, so brake lights will work whenever the turn signal is attached.
to be sure everything is working right, have a second person go inside the truck and work the signals, brakes and lights one at a time while you are at the back of the trailer telling what to do.
