SOURCE: how to wire for a hitch behind the bike for a trailer with lights

Wiring a motorcycle for a trailer is exactly like wiring a car or truck for a trailer hitch. You have to determine what type of lights you want on your trailer. You brake lights, turn signals, and tail lights. So, you get yourself a test light and connect the alligator clip to a good ground.

Now, on the backside of your rear fender is all the wires going to your brake light / tail light assembly and your turn signal lights. Now, I don't have a schematic for a late model FLH but it used to be the red wire was the brake light, the green wire was the tail light and you had a brown wire for one turn signal and a purple wire for the other side. The turn signal wires were actually gray wires with little brown or purple "bands" around the wire out near the bulb.

Step on the brake and use your tester to probe the wires until on lights up. Release the brake to verify the correct wire for the brake lights. Now turn on the right turn signal and probe the wires until you find one blinking. That's the right turn signal wire. Do the same thing to find the left turn signal wire. Now, you shouldn't have very many wires left. So, turn on the headlight and probe until you find a wire that lights up the tester. Now, at this point you should know which wire is which on your bike.

The trailer should have come with a wiring diagram. If not, you'll have to look at the light sockets on the trailer. You should see at least four colored wires. There should be one color wire on one light that is not on the other side light. These are turn signal wires. One color to the right, one color to the left side. Now the other two colors should go to both lights. One color is the brake light wire and the other is the tail light wire.

Now, that you have all the wires identified, simply buy the little connectors and start connecting the proper wires to each other. You'll be trailiering in no time. Good Luck and ride safe

Trailer lights


It appears you didn't get tapped into the correct wire for the brakes on the bike, or the trailer not .
start by double checking that the plug on the bike is grounding and powering to each connector pin or plug according to the wire color. than verify trailer wiring with a power source after verifying the color codes.

Need wirering diagram to hook up trailer lights and elecric break


Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have a great website with lots of info. With the tow package, there should be a plug under the dash... far left above the emerg. brake petal. The harness that plugs into it should have came with the truck, or you can order one to fit it. Did thew truck come with a 7 pin plug on the back? If not you can order one from the above mentioned site. They also have the wiring colors.

Then the problem is either with your trailer plug in, or the plug in on the truck. Use a test light to figure out which it is.

2001 Dodge Ram 2500, no running lights on trailer


The truck is protecting itself from the load impose by the trailer.. Chk the plug on the truck for wire gauge size. Turn any electrical loads off on the trailer, any and all. If fuse still blows then the fuse is either underated or the trailer has a dead short. In fact turn trail main power panel of. All lights work you say. So ck the inverter for defect byturning off the inverter on one of the trailers.

Check ground wire to the trailer. On the vehicle and the trailer. Make sure you have a good ground as lighting will seek any path for ground which will feedback and cause lights to act really weird.
