I'm going to scream. I have spent 5 hours now on wiring two tail lights
First, god bless the chinese, you can't match the wire colors from the trailer harness to the lights
...you have to mismatch them. They did all sorts of weird things. I finally cut the lights
out of the harness, and tested them with a battery
to figure out what was what.
So, I rewired it all, heatshrunk and everything (again). No worky. Can't figure it out. Tear it all apart, lights test fine again, check harness, no power. I finally found a trailer light
fuse in the engine compartment of the truck that was blown. I didn't have mini fuses on hand, so I ran to get a new one, and replaced it.
So, starting to learn, I decided to hook the lights up with my test wires with alligator clips...they don't work. ARRGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!
Check lights with battery
, still work. Harness has power now. I finally ohm out the test leads, and find one with high resistance. Put the alligator clips on a new piece of wire...they finally work.
Dear god. Now I just have to wire them back in...with mismatched colors. Green on harness (tail) goes to black on the lights. White on the harness (ground) goes to green on the lights. stupid me figured green-green, camper ground white to light
ground black as automotive uses black for ground.
I might need to get beer before this is over.
