Video Transcript for Circuit Testing a Vehicle 4-Pole

Today Im going to show you how to test the functionality of a trailer four-way connectors. What youre going to need to do this is a circuit tester and a buddy in the drivers seat to operate the taillight functions. The first thing were going to test is the taillights themselves. Hit the taillights. (beeping) that means thats working. The next thing were going to test is the left blinker.

(beeping) That works. Then were going to test the brake light function on that side as well. So, hit the brakes. (beeping) That works. Then for the right blinker (beeping).

Now the right brake (beeping). Now we know that this four-way connector is functioning.

This circuit tester was worth every penny. The audio and light indicators took all the guesswork out of the wiring. It made it easy to identify turn signal and brake wires and I was able to test for proper functionality in my trailer contact once everything was installed. Highly recommended. 180242

Do you have a question about this Wiring?


  • Hooking a Gooseneck Trailer with RV 7-Way Plug to 1999 International 9100 7-Way Round Plug
  • The first thing that you need is the Pollak Trailer Connector Adapter # PK12-724 which converts the 7-Way round connector on your 1999 International 9100 to a 7-Way blade style connector. This will plug into your 9100 and provide a pace to connect the gooseneck trailer wiring. The next step is to then use the Roadmaster Brite-Lite Wiring Converter # RM-732 on your trailer side wiring right behind the 7-Way. This converter takes separate brake and turn signals and combines them so that...

  • Troubleshooting Electric Lockout on Trailer with Surge Coupler
  • Your description of your trailer setup indicates that your surge coupler has an electric lockout feature to allow you to reverse the trailer without the surge brakes engaging. Some surge couplers use a manual lockout but yours has a solenoid with two wires (ground and hot) that take in the truck's reverse light signal; this closes the solenoid so no hydraulic brake fluid pressure can reach your brakes when you back up. Somewhere in your wiring you are losing your connection to the Silverado's...

  • Troubleshooting RV Electric Brakes That Do Not Engage
  • Since you have tried your truck with another RV trailer and found that trailer's brakes worked fine with your truck and its brake controller this suggests the problem is on the trailer side. There is a simple test you can do on your trailer's brakes that needs only a well-charged battery, such as the one in your truck. If you connect wires to the battery and directly apply their other ends to the brake and ground contacts on the trailer's 7-way (see photo please) all brakes on the trailer...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2017 GMC Acadia
  • I think I have forgotten more about hitches than Amazon will ever know! Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 76023 and Curt trailer hitch # C13293 will both fit your 2017 GMC Acadia. I have linked a video showing an example installation of the Draw-Tite hitch on a 2017 Acadia for you. The trailer wiring harnesses that are available all fit models that came with the factory tow package. If you take a look at the video I have linked on # 118720 you will see where it plugs in on the vehicle. That...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Installation in 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500
  • There is no plug-and-play brake controller harness for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 so brake controller installation will be a hard-wire process. Under the driver's seat there should be a green plug. The wires to this plug can be tested with a circuit tester like # 40376 to confirm their function since vehicle wire colors are not always consistent. A brake controller like the Prodigy P2 # 90885 has 4 wires that require connection to the Sprinter. The black wire is 12V...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2013 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor
  • First, we have had reports that Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # 76034 does fit the 2013 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor model. When adding a 4-Way trailer connector, # HM40285, to the Explorer it does require a direct connection to the vehicle battery so it does have a powered converter. But your Explorer might be factory prewired for a trailer connector. Check under the vehicle for the factory wiring as shown in the video I have linked...

  • How To Determine If 2003 Toyota Highlander Has The Factory Tow Package
  • if your 2003 Toyota Highlander has a tow package plug located in the driver's side rear cargo area under the floor (see instructions for installing Item # 118413 on where to look) then your Highlander has the tow package. If you find a plug, use a circuit tester like Item # 40376 to check to see if it is active. If you do not find a plug or the one you find is not active then you do not have a tow package. Another way to find out is to contact your local Toyota dealer, give them...

  • Electric Brake Controller Installation on a 2017 Cutaway Chevrolet 4500 RV
  • We haven't had the chance to install a brake controller on a 2017 Chevy 4500 Cutaway but it's very likely to be the same. The first difference I would be careful of though is the wiring coloring. Before assuming the wire color is all the same use a circuit tester, like part # 40376, to test each wire you find for function. Vehicle manufacturers aren't very consitent on wire colors; especially from year to year. If you need other components, like a trailer hitch or 7-way connector...

  • Installing a Towed Vehicle Battery Switched Charging Line on 2016 Ford F53 Chassis Motorhome
  • For your 2016 Coachmen Mirada 35LS, to find a switched power line I recommend using a circuit tester like # 40376. Then you will use the Roadmaster Battery Charge Line Kit for Motorhomes # RM-156-75 with solenoid # TR118665 after the circuit breaker with the center post connected to your switched power line. This with make sure that power is only drawn from the motorhome when the ignition switch of your Coachmen is turned on. Then on the towed vehicle (toad) side you can use the Roadmaster...

  • I do have a brake controller that will work well with your 2017 Porsche Macan but the Tekonsha Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake Controller part # 90250 is not a confirmed fit. Instead, I recommend using the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195 as this is one of our most highly rated, well reviewed, and easy to use brake controllers. If you do not have the factory tow package on your Macan then you will also need to install the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer...

  • 7-Way Connector and Fusion LED Trailer Lights Functions by Wire Color
  • I can tell you which wires on each the light and plug are for, though you will want to use a circuit tester such as # 40376 to verify the functions. The the Fusion LED Trailer Tail Light # STL211XRFHB has a 4-wire pigtail. The white wire is ground, brown wire is backup light, red wire is brake light and black wire is tail light. The Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug # 277-000143 is a 7-way connector that has the same functions as you see in the accompanying diagram. The yellow wire...

  • You are correct that the Red wire from the Charger for Curt Soft Trac I and II Trailer Breakaway Kits # C52025 is connected to the Battery, the White is connected to Ground, the Blue is connected to the Breakaway Switch. The Black wire that you are asking about will be spliced into the 12V Power wire on your trailer. This should be the wire connected to the pin in the 11 O'clock position on your trailer's 7-Way connector (see attached picture). You can test this out by connecting your trailer...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 2015 Ford Transit T250 with Factory Tow Package
  • To the best of our knowledge there is no plug-in adapter that will work on your 2015 Ford Transit T250. There should be a bundle of wires under the driver side dash that you can connect the adapter that you have picture to. Simply cut off the end that doesn't connect to your brake controller and use a circuit tester like part # 40376 to test for the following functions that you can splice your harness to: Blue - Brake Controller Output Black - 12V Power White - Ground Red - COLD Side...

  • Prodigy P3 Brake Controller Installation in 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler without Tow Package
  • Brake controllers like the excellent Prodigy P3 # 90195 use the vehicle brake light switch to deliver the electrical signal that tells the controller your vehicle is braking, and from there the built-in accelerometer sensor determines the amount of braking power that needs to be sent to the trailer's brakes. This is how all proportional type brake controllers operate. They take in the triggering electrical signal from the pedal and then proportionally deliver brake power to match the rate...

  • How to Use the Tekonsha Prodigy Brake Controller Part # 90250 on a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SEL
  • Yes, the Tekonsha Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake Controller part # 90250 will work on your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SEL as long as you have a 7-way trailer connector. If you do not already have a 7-way trailer connector then you are going to first need a 4-way trailer connector and then a 4 to 7-way trailer connector. For this, I recommend using the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118754 with the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller part # ETBC7. Please note that...

  • Installing Trailer Brake Controller on 2018 Ford Transit T250 with Factory 7-Way
  • There is not a factory brake controller plug-in port on your 2018 Ford Transit T250 so in order to install your existing Tekonsha Primus Brake Controller you will need to hardwire it in using the Wiring Kit # 5506. This kit will provide you with the power and ground wires for the brake controller along with the needed circuit breakers. The red wire from the brake controller will then need to be spliced to the cold side of the brake light switch on the Transit. This is the wire that only...

  • Testing Tail Light Wires to Install ZCI Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
  • While I do not know the wire colors/functions on your 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack I can tell you how to figure it out. Use the included circuit tester that came with the ZCI harness # 119250KIT or if you need one you can get # 40376 to test the tail light wires while someone sits in the vehicle and goes through the various light functions. If there is one wire that has brake lights, tail lights, and turn signals on it then you only use one connector per side on the ZCI harness. You...

To install a brake controller like the best-selling Prodigy P3 # 90195 on your 2017 Mazda CX-5 you first need to install Wiring Harness # 118746 to get a 4-way connector and as you mentioned, you'll also need the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer...

  • Recommended Brake Controller for a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
  • For a brake controller that will work well with your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, I recommend taking a look at the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195. The Tekonsha P3 is one of our best selling brake controllers due to its built in safeguards and ease of use. Unfortunately, a plug and play brake controller wiring harness is not available for your Atlas at this time therefore, the only way to install the controller would be to hardwire it directly to your vehicle's wiring...

There are 5 wires that you will need to connect in order to install this harness. The white wire is for the ground circuit. The brown wire is for the tail lights.

  • Adding 7-Way and 4-Way to 2017 Toyota Tacoma Without Tow Package
  • The reason the 7-Pole and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Sockets # HM40975-11998 has more wires than the 4-pin is because this part is used for a 7-way and 4-way. We can help accomplish your goal but first you would first need to add 4-way # 118685. From there you will need # 5506, which is similar to the # ETBC7, to get the functions of the 7-way and you can then hardwire # HM40975-11998 to get the look you want. There is no video for how to accomplish specifically what you want to do, so...

Since you don't have the connector under your dash instead of using the # 3026-P adapter you need our # 5506 wiring kit to install the Prodigy P3, part # 90195. The wiring kit includes everything to power a brake controller. I've linked a video from when we installed our # ETBC7 kit on...

  • 2018 Wrangler JL 5-Way Trailer Wiring Harness
  • We certainly do. The solution is basically to convert a 4-way to a 5-way. If your 2018 Jeep JL already has a 4-way then you simply need to convert it. If it doesn't already have any trailer wiring then you need to start with a custom 4-way harness. The Tekonsha, part # 118786, has the highest maximum amperage available for the wiring that fits your Jeep so it's what I'd choose. It plugs inline behind both tail lights and then has a hot lead that's run to the Jeep's battery. I've...

  • How to Determine if a 2018 Toyota Highlander has a Factory Tow Package
  • You can have a Toyota dealer run the VIN number to determine how your 2018 Toyota Highlander is equipped. As far as trailer wiring you can check under the dash for any sort of wiring converter. It may or may not be labeled. Or you can find where a wiring harness plugs into the vehicle at the back and then use a circuit tester such as # 40376 to test that connector. Have someone sit in the vehicle and operate the lighting functions while you test the connector. If there is power on that...

You did not specify the harness you used, but for a 2007 Honda Odyssey, there are three fits, the T-One # 118438, Curt # C56161, and Hopkins # HM11143115. To start, we'll isolate the problem to either the trailer or vehicle. You can do this by using a circuit tester such as # 40376 to check the functions of the 4-way plug while somebody else engages them (brake, turn signal,...

  • Recommended Replacement Electric Brakes for 7,000 lb Tandem Axles

These brakes are 12" diameter x 2" wide and will work with your 5 bolt mounting flange and 16" wheels. These brake assemblies are rated specifically for use with 7,000 lb axles instead of some brakes which can work with axles that have a wide range of capacity, such as between 5,200 lbs and 7,000 lbs.
