How to Install a Wiring Harness for a Trailer on a 1996 Chevrolet Lumina

Today on this 1996 Chevrolet Lumina we are going to install part number 18252 kit. What we have to do is hard wire it on to the existing harness, it is not a plug in or anything like that. At least we can get to the wires pretty easily in the vehicle. Everything we need to get to is right behind this tail light. Undo the carpeting, get this knob out of our way first. Pull it back out of our way. This is the wire harness we can get at for everything we need. Peel the loom away. What we are going to do is turn on the running lights in the vehicle and find out what the functions are going to be. On our 4-pole wiring connector we need to find out what the running light circuit is. This brown wire is our running light circuit so brown to brown in this instance. Now work on the right turn signal. The right 4-pole harness is going to be green. Now we will do our left turn signal that is going to be yellow to yellow. 01:00

Now all you have to do is hook up the ground. When we ground our white wire, there is two different ways of doing it. One is right to the sheet metal and install it right there or also the black wire is for the ground and we can make a direct connection to that too. We are going to leave our wiring hang out in the trunk area for now. Push the carpet back in. When you are using the wiring harness it is going to be pretty easy to do. All you have to do is pull it out. You can shut the hatch on it because there is going to be plenty of room with the door seal. Just keep it away from the latch and we can pull what we need out to the trailer. When we are not using it we can keep it underneath the carpet or possibly with the spare tire underneath. There you have it for part number kit 18252 from Tow Ready.
