forget the colors, what should the wiring diagram be for a 5 pin male , for example clockwise from the top, running lights, break lights, RT. blinker, LF. blinker blank pin
asked by: Neil
The Pollak 5-Pole, Round Pin Trailer Wiring Sockets, item # PK11502, and # PK11501, do not have a standardized wiring configuration. I normally direct my customers to the 6-way wiring configuration, eliminating the middle pin.
Start by wiring the top most connector inside the vehicle end # PK11502, as with the taillight circuit (12 o-clock). Then looking inside the connector, where the wires are attached, going clockwise the next terminal (1 o-clock) position can be wired as brake output, 12 volt power, or reverse light circuit, whichever connection your vehicle requires.
Next, going clockwise attach the right turn/brake circuit (5 o-clock), then the left turn/brake circuit (7 o-clock) and finally the ground wire to the 10 o-clock terminal.
You would then wire the inside of the trailer connector to match (mirror) the vehicle side connector.
Our wiring page (see link) has pictures with labels for each of the 6-Way connectors for you to follow just eliminating the center pin.
