More wiring problems


SpringerGuy

Question

I just got a new Warrior with a Warrior trailer. It has a flat 5 wire plug on the trailer. I didn't even know there was such a thing! Anyway I have a plug-in insert thing in my wireing harness. When I wired my pickup I cut the wires off leading to my old four wire plug then spliced in the 5 wire plug. The extra blue wire goes to my backup lights and releases the disc brakes when I put the pickup in reverse and allows the trailer to be backed up. I had a extra wire coming off the plup-in insert. It is red and must run my stop lights, so I spliced it into the brown wire (tail lights) on the flat plug. Now when I step on the brakes my parking lights come on, my radio clock dims, and a dinger goes of when I open my door and have my foot on the brake pedal. No stop lights on the trailer. The tail lights come on when I step on the brake.

The five wires are ground, left turn, right turn, tail, and that blue one that is for my back up lights.

Any ideas on what I need to do differant?

Thanks in advance,

Does the trailer have electric brakes?
Is that the extra red wire?

The trailer has surge brakes. When I tested that red wire it came on with the brakes.

A bad ground will cause strange problems like you described.

Tom, you say hooked up the red wire to your brown on the trailer? That would only give running lights when you hit the brakes. Your green/yellow should double as brake lights from the truck. Do your surge brakes have a battery? See if you have a constant 12V coming from the red wire. I may be confused here. Is there a red wire on both 5 wire plugs? Sounds like with your current config, your sending voltage head to head. More details please...

My ground should be good. Everything works fine when I disconnect the red wire.

Chucky,
There are five wires coming of the plug-in insert. A blue, yellow, red, brown, & green. There are five wires on the flat plug. A white ground, blue for back up lights, left turn, right turn, & a brown for tail lights. I was thinking that brown doubled up as tail and brake lights. Do I need to hook up the red to both turn signals?

Nope, lets start with leaving the mystery (red) wire out of the picture for a minute. Go ahead and hook-up color to color minus the red altogether and see what we get. I'm gonna guess the lights work normally. Next, if you can, physically trace the red wire where it comes on to the trailer and lets see where that goes. Nevermind the truck side yet.

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
