Depending on what type of plug you put on your truck whether it was factory or the four way there should be one wire that goes to ground on the frame of truck and one wire that goes on ground of trailer. Also the lights should be grounded to the trailer as well with no plastic in between the bracket and trailer.

I cannot get power to the constant hot wire to my 7 way in the rear plug. Is the stud #1 supposed to have the 40 amp fuse. I have all of the turn and stop lights working at the plug and all of the other fuses seem to be good. I have a separate trailer brake control unit wired and plugged in under the dash and have used trailer with electric brake with no problems. I just wonder why I don't have the constant power to the rear plug.

I have an appropriate seven blade trailer plug. All functions work except the auxiliary power feed. But I cannot find where the auxiliary power feed wire gets its power from.

I have lost the power to my trailer plug. The fuses inside the driver door check out with a light tester. Are there relays in between the fuses and the trailer plug?

Check the fuse box in the engine compartment. It is located on the drivers side. The trailer fuse is located in there. Check out the fuses and let us know what you find.

This truck does not have a plug in module for hooking up trailer. A plug must be hard wired to wires coiled on top of spare tire. I need a wiring diagram for attaching a trailer plug.

Some of those trucks there is a t fitting that you can by at your local parts store that plugs right into the factory harness. If not check the left frame rail all your wiring might be there. But I would suggest the t fitting first. Then you dont have to cut anything

Use a test light or meter to verify the trailer plug is receiving power. Use the meter to verify continuity between the plug on the trailer and the lights. Verify the bulbs are good.

Electrical problem
1995 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 147000 miles

I am trying to rewire the trailer light hook-up on my truck. Does the end going into the body of the truck just plug in somewhere, and if so where does it plug in? Is there any place I can go to get an exploded view of where it would plug in. Many thanks again for your help.

Brakes problem

I have a 97 Chevrolet z71, unable to locate the stop switch wire to install trailer brakes. I was instructed to look for a grouping of 5-7 white wires, however, looking under the dash I have found a grouping of wires but they are all different colors and a lot more than 5-7 in the group. Any ideas on the installation?
