Ask the Experts about this Pollak Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring

  • 7-Way to Replace Rusted OEM Bracket on 2007 Chevy Silverado
    The Pollak 7-Pole connector # PK11916 is made for twist-in installation on OEM bumpers. We do not offer the metal OEM bracket part that this item fits into but that might be available at a dealership. What you can use is 7-way socket # 85219 which includes both a separate mounting bracket and hardware along with a 7-way socket that will connect to the existing harness on the truck.

  • How to Remove 7-Way Trailer Wiring Plug from Socket on 2015 Audi Q7 with Factory 7-Way
    A vehicle 7-way harness will have a locking tab of some type to ensure the wiring harness remains connected to the socket. This is an important safety feature for maintaining all of the trailer signals but especially so for the power to the trailer brakes. The exact appearance and operation of these locking tabs can vary. For example, on Hopkins 7-way harness # HM40975-11998 there is a small grey locking tab, shown in one of the linked photos, that slides to lock/unlock the connection....

  • Replacement Trailer Axle For Dexter Torsion 3,500 lb Axle
    We don't carry the torsion axle replacements, but if you want the exact replacement you will want the #10 Torflex Torsion Axle. I do have a replacement option if you are interested in an alternative. You can use the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - 2" Lift Spindle - Standard Tires - 3,500 lbs # TASR35HDS07 which uses a 2 inch square tube (not included) in the integrated holes. This mounts directly to the trailer frame and has the integrated suspension.

  • Wiring Brake Controller on 2008 Chevrolet Suburban 2500
    The power supply wire you are looking for should be taped up on the cab side of your junction box. Some times it is tucked down and hard to see and has to be fished out. If it is not there you can run a wire from the junction box into the cab and splice it to the black wire on the brake controller. Check out the FAQ on installing a brake controller on a similar vehicle at right, and the video of the Tekonsha Brake Controller being installed on a 2008 Suburban. The installation will...

  • Best 7-Way Connectors for a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado
    If you are just needing to replace the 7-Way connector alone on your 2000 Chevrolet Silverado then you will just need to go with the Pollak Twist-in Connector # PK11916. We also have the Reese Multi-Tow 7-Way & 4 Pole Trailer Connector # 74682 which connects to a US car connector and installs under the rear bumper of your Silverado. The advantage to this option is that you get both a 7-Way and 4-Way connection for multiple different trailer types. If you do not have any connectors...

  • Activating 12-Volt Trailer Accessory Circuit on 7-way Trailer Connector of 2009 GMC Sierra
    I'll assume you're doing some troubleshooting because the 12-v trailer accessory circuit at the trailer connector isn't functional. There are two wires near the fuse box under the hood that sometimes need to be connected in order to power up your brake controller and the 12-v accessory power circuit to the trailer connector. To the right of the fuse box, next to the fender there is a red wire with a ring terminal on the end. It connects to the left hand power stud on the front side of...

  • Is there a Mounting Bracket for Twist-in, 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector PK11916
    Because the Twist-in, 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector, # PK11916, is designed to fit in the cutout in the bumper of your truck, it does not have a mounting bracket specific for it. You could replace the connector with # PK11893 and use mounting bracket # PK12711U or you can try to use one of the mounting brackets in the link I have provided.

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    I actually recommend that you use the Hopkins connector, # HM40975, because it comes with a 7-Way and a 4-Way and also comes with a bracket. The connection at the back is made to fit the factory harness on a 2003 Chevy Silverado that came with a factory 7-Way. I have included a link to a video that shows a typical installation for you. If you want to go with a regular 7-Way use # PK11893 and bracket # PK12711U.

  • 2002 Chevy Silverado Tow Package Turn Signal Circuits Work But Not Brake Light Circuit
    I would start by testing at the trailer connector on the vehicle. The pins that carry the right and left turn signals also carry the brake light signal for each side. Use a tester like part # 40376 on the pins at the 3:00 and 9:00 positions in the connector. Both pins should show current when the truck brakes are applied. If they do not, there might be a blown fuse in the box located under the hood of the truck on the drivers side fender well. There should be a legend on the underside...

    There are many possibilities that might be causing your brake problems. A dirty, damaged or corroded trailer connector on the vehicle or the trailer, an open circuit in the trailer wiring, worn brake magnets. Any of these could be causing your problem, or possibly none of them. You'll need to do a systematic troubleshoot of the trailer braking system, as outlined in the help article I've linked to. If you could reply and tell me which controller you have, I might be able to provide some...

    Your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado is set up from the factory with trailer tow wiring, so I agree that wiring power wires from the battery is not the way that things should be done in your case. On the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado there are two wires under the hood that need to be connected to have power to the 7-Way trailer connector at the back of the vehicle and the brake controller wiring under the dash, see photo at right. These wires are connected to the two studs at the power distribution...

If you also need the wiring harness with the round connector, then you will want the Pollak Pigtail Wiring Harness, # PK11998. Unfortunately this is not a simple plug-in style harness. You will have to splice this harness into the factory tow package wires at the back of the truck. I have attached an installation video of this harness on a 2002...

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Work Truck
    You will want to look up under your 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD behind the bumper or above the spare tire for a wiring harness. If it is present and has a round connector at the end and looks like # PK11998 then you would be able to install 7-Way connector # PK11916 or 7 and 4-Way connector # HM40975. Chevy and Ford along with some Nissans and Dodges all went to this same connector style a few years back. The 2015 Chevy trucks also use it.

The pigtail would wire up according the description shown on its product page, which you can see by clicking the provided link.

    To start off you need to check under the hood to make sure the wiring connection mentioned in the GM brake controller FAQ article attached are made. In the 2002 - 2003 model years, GMC changed the way you hook up the brake controller under the dash. There are two possible wiring adapters that will fit the connector under the dash. The 3015-P and the 3025-P. The only difference between the two is the way the RED wire is pinned out. The red wire carries the signal from the stop light switch,...

    On a factory 7-Way connector the 12 volt hot wire should be the terminal at the 1 oclock position, looking at the front of the connector. If you test that terminal with a circuit tester and have no power you will want to check under the hood of your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado. You will want to locate the power distribution box on the drivers side of the engine bay. Remove the cover on the distribution box. There will be two post terminals at the front of the box.

    From what I understand of the 2010 Chevy Silverado, you first will need to release the connector and housing from the bumper. Pull it out, wiring and all, just enough that you have a little room to work. The housing should then just be able to be pulled away from the plug. There may be a little tab or lever on the top that you will need to hold down when pulling the housing away from the plug, like in the video linked below on a 2009 model.

    It is possible that the 12 volt circuit is not present on your 2009 Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra. For some reason GM did not always complete the tow package wiring. If the proper wires are not already present on your truck then you can manually run a wire from the main 12 volt battery to the 7-Way trailer connector. You would just need about 25 feet of wire # 12-1-1 sold by the foot. And you can either use the 12 volt post and fuse location on the power distribution box or run the wire...
