Extra wire on pigtail harness.

Question

CC Hurl

Hi folks, I have an extra wire on my pigtail harness that comes from the truck. It is green. The harness only has four so I am a little confused as all the lights seem to be working fine. Is this a ground wire of some sort? I was wondering if I was supposed to connect it to one of the other colors for some reason? I have not connected this wire to anything in the past but thought I would ask here to see if anyone could explain. Thanks for your time.

What colors do you have, Because green should be right blinkers. Do you have a blue wire or fadded blue? Is there constant power to it?

I used to have a trailer that had reverse lights. You can use a test light to see when that wire gets power.

A "typical"light harness should be as such:Red wire +fused battery,White wire-ground,Yellow wire left rear blinker/stop/brake,Green wire right rear blinker stop brake,Brown wire tail,side,license plate,Purple wire backup lights,Blue wire electric brake control circuit.Hope this helps.A multimeter or test lamp might be helpful.The multimeter can test voltage as well as current flow.Happy wiring!!!!!c63

Thanks for the replies you guys. From what you guys have mentioned I am thinking it is backup lights or electric breaks. Just thought I would ask on here and I am glad I did. Lights are all working fine and now I know what the extra wire is. Thanks again for your time.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
