2016 Saturn Relay

It just 16 gauge wire, but the video explaining the light relay installation indicated the perfect amount to complete the routing and installation.

Drew G.


The wiring is still in place with no signs of wear.

  • What Gauge Wire To Use For Lighting On A Box Truck
    For that I recommend using either a 14 or 16 gauge wire. Either will able to safely handle the amp load for the lights on your box truck. We offer the # DW02412-1 for a 14 gauge or the # 16-1-1 for a 16 gauge wire. Both are sold by the foot.

  • Parts Needed to Add Reverse Function for TecNiq LED Trailer Tail Light
    To add the reverse function on your trailer you need a 7-Way connector and enough wiring to run from the front to the back of your trailer. Here are the parts you need to get the wiring from your tow vehicle back to the TecNiq LED Trailer Tail Light # TN33XR: - Junction Box Kit # 3430001-JBK - 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector # H20043 - 16 Gauge Wire # 16-1-1 - Butt Connectors # DW05744-10 - 3-Wire Pigtail # A45PMB (per light) - 2-Wire Pigtail # A42PMB (per light)

  • Can An Extension Be Used With The Roadmaster 12v Outlet Kit
    It's totally normal to splice on some extra wire to the 12 Volt Outlet Kit # RM-9332 to get it to the battery so I would just use some 16 AWG # 16-1-1 and a butt connector # DW05744-10 instead of using the extension # RM-9331. The extension would technically work but just splicing in more wire is a bit cleaner of a setup.

  • Heater Pad Recommendations for Holding Tanks on Travel Trailer
    For your application we have 2 different heater pad sizes: 25" Long x 7-1/4" Wide - # 277-000163 18-1/4" Long x 12" Wide - # 277-000164 These have built-in thermostats that turn on when the tank reaches 45 degrees F and then shut off when the tanks reaches 67 degrees F. To install this you can use 16 Gauge Wire # 16-1-1 and a rocker switch like part # PK34310. Typically these are only installed on fresh water tanks because heating up the waste water usually causes some smells (ideally...

  • Changing Trailer 4-Way Wiring to 7-Way Wiring for Extra Function and Compatible Connector to Truck
    To switch your boat trailer from a 4-way to a 7-way connector, I recommend using the 7-Way Molded Trailer Wire Connector, 6' Long # H20044 along with heat shrink butt connectors # DW05744-5. You will ground the white wire to your trailer frame using # 44-5310A and then connect the running lights, right turn/stop, left turn/stop, and reverse light. To the reverse light (yellow wire on # H20044) you will connect # 16-1-1 wire sold by the foot to lead to your trailer reverse lights that...

  • Is There an Adapter Plug for the Furrion Vision S Monitor to Allow Use of Monitor Inside Trailer
    I may have a solution for you, but there isn't a standard plug available for the Furrion # FCE48TASL-05 that would allow you to plug it into an outlet. What I would recommend is that you use the # C-FOS07TAPK-006, cut off the cigarette adapter plug end and then run a length of 16-gauge wiring # 16-1-1 (sold by the foot) directly to the trailer battery and connect it with a ring terminal like the # DW05702-1. This would allow you to have a plug wired directly inside the camper and one that...

  • How to Install Interior Lights to a Cargo Trailer with 7-Wire System
    While we do not have a complete wiring kit for your interior light for a cargo trailer, you can simply use 16-gauge wire # 16-1-1 to install the light into the 12v power pin on your junction box. This solution provides power only when the 7-way plug is plugged in. If you need an interior light option, I suggest the Peterson Great White LED Trailer Interior Cove Light - 1000 Lumens - 18" Long # 359-3. Depending on the size of your trailer, you can always add more than 1 of these lights...

  • Parts Needed to Add Separate License Plate Bracket and Light With Peterson Light Kit M540
    You can tap into the running lights(brown wire) on the Peterson Light Kit # M540 with a Tap # SWC502905-1. That will allow you to run 16 Gauge Wire # 16-1-1 to a Optronics LED Trailer License Plate Light # OPT97FR. You will be able to ground the negative wire to the steel frame, as your light kit uses the frame for the ground circuits.

  • Wiring Diagram for Home Made Trailer
    I've linked an article on trailer wiring that includes a diagram you might find helpful. One solution to help wire everything together is to use a junction box with your trailer's 7-way connector, like # 277-000141. This way you can run all of your trailer's wires to the box instead of to the back of the connector. To wire you brakes you'll want to use 10 gauge wiring # 10-1-1. For the lights you can use 16 gauge, # 16-1-1. Both are sold by the foot. When looking into the back of...

  • How to Make Ground Connection on Optronics IL61CB Trailer Dome Light
    The Optronics # IL61CB dome light picks up its ground connection through the mounting hardware's connection to the metal structure of the trailer that's connected to the trailer frame. If you can't attach the lamp to metal that's in contact with the trailer's frame, you can use a jumper wire from one of the mounting screws to the trailer frame or to a metal structure of the trailer that's attached to the trailer fame. You can construct a jumper by using a length of # 16-1-1 with a ring...

  • Parts Needed To Install The Thinline LED Trailer Lights # STL64RB
    The Thinline LED Trailer Tail Light # STL64RB is pretty easy to install, you'll just need some butt connectors # DW05744-10, self tapping screws to mount the lights, a couple of ring terminals # DW05702-1 to easily mount the ground wires to the frame of the trailer, and possibly some extra wiring # 16-1-1 to bridge the gap between the lights and trailer wiring. You'll need some wire strippers # PT43ZR and crimpers # PTW30764 to secure the wires to the butt connectors and ring terminals....

  • What's Needed To Add Reverse Light Function To Curt Adapter 57676 On 2021 Kia Telluride?
    You've got it. You'll need to run some # 16-1-1 from the blue wire on the Curt 4-way to 7-way adapter # C96KR (57676) to the reverse light circuit on your 2021 Kia Telluride. A circuit tester like # PTW2993 will help you to find the correct wire to splice into with a quick splice # SWC501746-1.

  • Wire Gauge for Install of Optronics Thinline Trailer Taillight # STL64RB
    The wiring of the Thinline trailer light # STL64RB is a 16 gauge so sticking with that would be a good idea I'd say. We offer 16 gauge wire by the foot with part # 16-1-1 as well.

  • Comparing the Hot-Line LED Trailer Backup Light and GloLight LED Combination Trailer Tail Light
    In regards to light output, the Hot-Line LED Trailer Backup Light part # 328-003-6017W will physically put out more light than the reverse light portion of the GloLight LED Combination Trailer Tail Light part # STL161RLB as it has twice as many diodes (12 vs 6). In order to run the reverse light circuit you can use part # 16-1-1 (per foot).

  • Parts Needed to Add Back Up Lights & 7-Way Connector on Boat Trailer
    We can get you set up to add back up lights and a 7-way to your boat trailer, and I'll go over what you'll need. Let's start with the back up lights, and for your boat trailer you'll want submersible lights like you said, the GloLight LED Backup Light for Truck or Trailer - Submersible # BUL111CFPG. This will use a 2-wire (power and ground) pigtail, either the Right Angle 2-Wire Pigtail # A49PB or 2-Wire Pigtail # A45CB. Then for added wire I recommend 16 Gauge # 16-1-1, which is sold...

  • How Does Electric Trailer Brake Assembly Get Wired To Trailer?
    I would be happy to help! Electric Trailer Brakes like the # AKEBRK-6R you were looking at are pretty easy to wire to your trailer. On the back of the brake assembly there is two wires that go to the brake magnet. Pick one of the wires and ground it to the frame of your trailer by adding a ring terminal # DW05737-1 and a self tapping screw. If the wire is not long enough to reach the frame then you will need to add a piece of # 16-1-1. The other wire going to the brake magnet will need...

  • Recommendation for Submersible LED Backup Lights on a Boat Trailer
    I can help you add reverse lights to your trailer. Yes, It is important to pay attention to DOT compliance when adding lights on your boat trailer. Compliance will be met if you use the Optronics # BUL10CB light as your backup light. The # BUL72CB is purposed for a utility light and will not meet the criteria for reverse lights on the roadway. In order to add reverse lights to your trailer would would need to have a 7-Way on the trailer and a 7-Way on the vehicle. On the vehicle side,...

  • Will the Universal Wiring Harness # 22551 Fit on a 1985 Ford F-250
    It sounds like you have a short somewhere on your trailer stop/turn circuits on your 1985 Ford F-250. The Universal Wiring Harness # 22551 will fit your pickup and provide you with the connector needed for a brake controller like the Prodigy P2 # 90885 if that is the route you are wanting to take. You can also check to make sure your current 7-Way connector is clean and free of debris as well as making sure your turn/stop circuits on your pickup don't have any shorts. By searching along...

  • Recommended Backup Lights For Boat Trailer
    The Optronics LED Trailer Utility Light - Submersible - 10 Diodes - Oval - Clear Lens # BUL28CLPB is a great option to add to the back of your boat trailer for additional light when backing up the trailer in the dark. Adding 4 lights total with 2 in the front and 2 in the rear sounds like a good plan as it will also give you additional light around the trailer. I would not cut any holes in the frame of the trailer, and would source hardware from your local hardware store and mount them...

  • Running Lights Not Working on Trailers
    I would first verify that you have fully functioning connectors on all of your trucks. If it just so happens that the running light function isn't working on one of your trucks, then you could be inspecting the wiring on your trailers for nothing. You can test all of the functions using a circuit tester # PTW2993. For a 4-Pole connector it is usually the Brown wire which is right next to the ground wire. For a 7-Way connector it will be the pin in the 11 O'clock position. If you have verified...

  • Installing A Light Run Off A Toggle Switch
    The Bully Bumper Mount Backup Light - Clamp On # PL-807 can be added to a switch on or near your dash. I recommend using the Pollak Light-Duty Toggle Switch - On-Off - 12 Volt - 10 Amp - 6" Wire Leads # PK34513 and running wire directly from your battery for power using a ring terminal like # DW05737-1. You can use butt connectors like # DW05744-10 and wire by the foot like # 16-1-1. This will allow you to use the light at any time whether the car is on or off.

  • Can Ventline Ventadome Trailer Roof Vent V2094 be Converted to the Wall Mount Switch Version V2119
    Since the big difference between the Ventline Ventadome Trailer Roof Vent # V2094SP-30 and the vent # V2119-1-533 is that one has the control right on the unit and the other has a wall mount I see no reason why you can't just unhook the wiring from your current trim and then either route it to the Switch # VC0533-03-A. You can even swap out your current frame/screen with part # BVC0573-31 for Birch White or part # BVC0573-41 for Polar White. I have attached a video showing how to replace...

  • Recommended Diode And Switch To Operate Interior Trailer Light When Not Attached To Truck
    I assume you want to have the lights work as they have with the truck attached and then you want to be able to turn the lights on when the trailer is not attached to the truck. I have attached a drawing that shows how the wiring can be run to give you that option. I recommend a toggle switch like part # PK33300 and also a wiring diode like part # RM-790. You can use 16-ga wire like part # 16-1-1 for this. The # 16-1-1 is sold by the foot.

    What I recommend installing is the Optronics LED Trailer Tail Light # STL78RB on either side of your cargo carrier. Then for your connector use the Wesbar Wishbone Wiring Harness # 002402 with the Hopkins Adapter # 47345 so it is compatible with the 7-Way on your 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML550. The wiring configuration for the Wesbar wishbone is as follows: White - ground wire Yellow - left turn/brake light Green - right turn/brake light Brown - tail lights For extra wiring use the Bonded 4...
