Today we're going to be taking a look at the Pilot break and trailer hitch receiver light. Part number CR-007A This two inch by two inch hitch cover provides all the benefits of a regular hitch cover, keeping out dirt and debris with the added benefit of lighting up for safety. It lights up when either your running lights are on, or when the breaks are depressed. It's constructed of a durable ABS plactic and includes a foam gasket to help reduce rattle. It plugs into your existing four pull connection. The incandescent bulb is easily replaced. Now that we've gon over the features I'll go ahead and show you how easy it is to install.

You'll need to provide your own pin and clip. If you don't have one that's okay, you can find one at our website at part number PC3. Let's go ahead and feed it into our receiver tube and we'll line up our pin holes. That looks pretty good. Then we'll take our pin and clip and slide that through.

Put our clip in place. Then we can grab our four pull connection and we'll just plug it into our four pull outlet. Now lets try it out. Works great, now lets try our breaks. That's going to complete our look at the Pilot break and trailer hitch receiver light, part number CR-007A.

First time customer, first time writing a review like this. My order was mistakenly swapped with someone else's. Ok, mistakes happen. Company re-shipped item when notified but the shipping clock had to start over from ground zero - they would not, to any extent, expedite the order to try and cover their mistake. Then we received an automated invitation link to write this review, presumably unaware my order hasn't even arrived yet. Next time other sites 481216

Love it. Makes me feel safer knowing my van is easier to see from the rear. I drive 65 or less and on the open road where some go 80 I want as much lighting on the back as possible.

Received my hitch light very quickly after ordering. Installation was pretty easy. We did have to push it in pretty hard due to the foam seal that comes with it. But that is not a bad thing as once it is in there, it won't move a bit. This should help with the longevity of the bulbs inside. Very happy customer. 339655

FABULOUS! Great durability! Still looks like new! Still getting comments about how bright it is. Those comments make me feel confident that the light is helping other drivers be aware of my vehicle in front of them which makes me feel safer.

Ask the Experts about this Pilot Automotive Hitch Covers
Do you have a question about this Hitch Cover?


  • Are Replacement Foam Gaskets Available for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Covers
  • We have a thin foam gasket that you could use, # AMG-FM. with a 2 inch hitch cover. They are thinner than the gasket that came with hitch cover # CR-007A so you may need more than 3. We also have neoprene pad # BWTS35020 that normally fits on B&W 2 inch ball mounts but could be used for a hitch cover as well.

  • Recommended Wiring for the Pilot Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A
  • Pilot does not offer a wiring diagram for the Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover, # CR-007A, but the wiring is pretty simple. The hitch cover has a 4-way flat connector that was designed to work with typical 2-wire systems, meaning the brake light and turn signals are combined on the same circuit. The hitch cover has a converter to prevent the turn signal function from reaching the light. In other words, the turn signal function will be reaching the hitch cover connector,...

  • Bypassing F-150 Trailer Wiring to Use of Brake/Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A
  • It sounds like your truck has a factory 7-way installed. If you wish to have a 4-pole wiring harness on your F-150 to operate a lighted hitch cover such as the Pilot # CR-007A, and have that be completely independent of the truck's internal trailer package wiring, then you can install a simple 4-pole harness to use just for the hitch cover light. Draw-Tite part # 18252 is a 4-pole flat harness that splices into your taillight wiring using the included quick-splice connectors. A video...

  • How to Install Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A on 7-Way
  • The Pilot Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A that you referenced has a 4-pole flat trailer connector for making its electrical connection to your Silverado. You can use an adapter like Pollak # PK12716 to allow connection to your Silverado's 7-way trailer socket. If you want to add some length for stress relief you could instead use the Hopkins Heavy-Duty Coiled Trailer Connector Adapter # HM47075.

  • Hitch Mounted Third Brake Light Recommendation for a 2 inch Hitch
  • Yes we do, it sounds like you would want the Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A. This is designed to fit a 2 inch hitch and will plug in to a trailer 4-way connector to provide you with an additional brake light. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Availability of a Brake Light Hitch Cover that Does Not Blink with Turn Signals
  • The right turn signal will come on with the Brake Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover, # CR-007. The reason is that it uses the right turn signal/brake circuit which is a combined circuit. However, Pilot did make a cover that will not blink when you turn on the signals. It is # CR-007A. It has a converter in line with the wiring that filters out anything but brake and running lights. It is designed for 2 inch trailer hitches.

  • Availability of Plain Reflective Hitch Cover
  • We do not carry a hitch cover that features reflectors, but you could pretty easily rig one up using the Curt Chrome trailer hitch cover, part # F-10P and conspicuity tape like # RE418T. You'd simply peel off the backing of the high-quality tape and apply it to the hitch cover as you wish.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Hitch Cover Light that Doesn't Work as Brake Light
  • If you haven't already start by testing the vehicle's connector to make sure it's even sending power on the yellow and green wires. You want to isolate whether the issue on the light or the vehicle side. You may have already done this but if not start here because you don't want to be troubleshooting the light when the issue is on the vehicle or the other way around. Use a circuit tester like part # 3808 while someone engages the functions in the vehicle. If you get no power for brake...

  • Is the Bulb Replaceable in the # CR-007A Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover
  • Yes, the bulb in the Pilot Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover, item # CR-007, is replaceable with a Replacement Light Bulb, item # 1157. Just pop the lens off from the front bottom right hand side and the bulb can be easily replaced. You may also be interested in a receiver lock to secure the brake light in your trailer hitch. The DeadBolt Locks Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, item # 7683, would be an excellent choice. We a a video demo of this item for you to review, see link.

  • How to Wire Bully Light-Up Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A on 2013 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Bully Light-Up Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A will connect to a 4-pole flat trailer wiring connector on your 2013 Ridgeline. If your truck does not have a working 4-pole flat trailer connector it is easy to add one using part # 118400. This wiring harness simply plugs in at your truck's taillights and no cutting or splicing of wires is required. If you have a different type of trailer connector on the truck please let me know so I can recommend a suitable adapter. I have...

  • Is the Pilot Brake Light Hitch Cover # CR-007 Suppose to Flash When Right Turn Signal is Applied
  • On a hitch cover like the Pilot Brake Light Hitch Cover, part # CR-007, that uses just the green and white wires, the right turn signal is flashing because the hitch cover is using the right turn signal/brake circuit which is a combined circuit. This will happen on a hitch cover that only uses the two wires. However, Pilot does make a cover that will not blink when you turn on the signals. It is the Pilot Brake Light Hitch Cover, part # CR-007A. It has a converter in line with the wiring...

  • Pilot Brake and Tail Light Hitch Cover # CR-007A Will Not Turn Off
  • If the Pilot Brake and Tail Light Hitch Cover, # CR-007A, never goes out, then it is constantly receiving power from one of the tail light circuits coming from the vehicle. To begin troubleshooting, make sure your vehicle is turned off and the vehicle lights are off. If the hitch light stays on with the vehicle off and lights off, there is a problem. I recommend using a circuit tester, like our # ALL640595, to test each of the pins on the 4-way connector on your Sorento with the vehicle...

  • Functions of the Wiring for the Pilot Hitch Cover Light # CR-007XL
  • For the # C-007XL the wiring colors are as follows. The white wire on both sides of the converter box is the ground. The green wire is the right stop/turn circuit between 4-way and converter and only right turn between the converter and light. The yellow wire is the left stop/turn circuit between 4-way and converter and only left turn between the converter and light. The brown wire is the running lights circuit for both sides. The red wire that is only between the converter box and...

  • Length of Wiring on Pilot Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A
  • I checked with my contact at Pilot Automotive for the length of the wiring included on their Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A. My contact advised that the length of the wiring itself is approximately 14-inches. If this is not long enough for your installation we offer 4-pole extensions such as 12-inch # HM48145 or 120-inch # HM48235, both from Hopkins.

  • Will Trailer Hitch Cover Light Cause Trailer Warning Message on 2018 Ford
  • We do get a number of questions from people getting warning messages about their trailer wiring when towing with newer Ford trucks. It's normally because the truck senses the trailer like it's supposed to but the trailer has LED lights which draw less power than incandescent lights and therefore the truck thinks there's a problem because of the lower power draw. Basically the truck thinks a light is out even though it isn't. The trailer hitch cover, part # CR-007A, is an incandescent...

  • Tail Light Function Not Working on Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover
  • First, check to make sure there is power on the running light circuit on the vehicle side trailer connector using a circuit tester such as # 40376. If there is no power when the lights are on then there is something wrong on the vehicle side, likely a blown fuse. It could also be that the vehicle side connector is corroded and needs to be cleaned out with a wire brush. This has happened to me before. If there is power then there is an issue on the side of the Pilot lighted cover # CR-007A...

  • Troubleshooting Pilot Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007A On Tacoma
  • The # CR-007A is designed to be used with a 2-wire system, meaning the brake and turn signals share the same bulb. You can tell if your vehicle has a 2-wire or 3-wire systems based on the tail lights. Vehicles with a 3-wire setup will have an amber turn signal on their tail lights. If your Tacoma has the factory 4-way plug installed, it should already have a converter installed which would combine the circuit for the brake and tail light. You will want to use a circuit tester like part...

  • Taillight Converter Recommendation for Isolating Stoplight Signal for Hitch Cover
  • We don't carry just the converter of the part # CR-007A but we do sell converters like the part # C56196 which will allow you to isolate just the brake wire of your vehicles wiring. I attached a review video and instructions for you to check out as well.

  • What Size is the Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover, # CR-007A
  • The outside dimensions of the light portion of the Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover, # CR-007A, are 3 inches wide by 3 inches tall. The shank is designed to fit in a 2 inch square receiver tube. The bulb inside is replaceable. It accepts the Replacement Bulb, # A1157B. You may also be interested in a trailer hitch receiver lock, # 7683, to secure the cover to the hitch and deter theft. I have included a link to a video review of the lock for you to view.
