I have found that the round type connectors seem to work better than the flat connectors, mostly I think because they have a cap over them to keep the crud out when not in use.

If your truck did not come with the tow package, one of these connectors if i'm not mistaken, the bigger one will have the same color blue wire going in but not coming out the other side. Don't really want to do a butcher job, thought that it might be there. The trailer connector must be grounded.
The connector on the trailer should have a wire connected to a clean bare surface on the trailer frame.

I'm going to poke around there as soon as it warms up here outside but just to clarify, you're saying the blue wire has to somehow be routed under the dash and hook up to the controller plug? Do you have the brake controler too? There was no hitch on the truck so I installed both the factory hitch and wiring harness with both 7 and 4 pin connectors. I've run several rigs with the 9030, including my own, and they seem to work just fine. We're now ready to begin installing the new Curt T-connector wiring harness.
If there is a weak ground, when you apply the brakes with the taillights on is when the problem will show up. The most popular way to ground a taillight is with a bolt through the taillight housing and the frame. This one is easy to adjust to the load you are hauling. Squeeze it together nice and tight and then double check it. You've come to the right place to get affordable quality Trailer Wire Connectors for your Dodge Ram 1500.
Better is to add brake lights to the trailer, and use the 6 or 7 pin connector and run the brake light wire through the auxiliary circuit. Check for pinched or cut wires, especially around suspension components or behind taillights. For example: Left taillight not flashing on the trailer when it is flashing on the truck, or clearance lights flickering on the trailer. Now to begin our install, we need to find the wiring behind the tail light assemblies. You are too stupid to pull a trailer without killing innocent people.
Its stuffed into the wiring loom inside the frame, alongside the fuel tank. We'll plug it in, give it a quick tug to make sure it locks in place and then move to the other side of our T-connector. Their products are output of intensive research and development to guarantee that it will meet technician's needs. Subject: Re: 7-Pin Connector Wiring From: Drdonnelly My 97 Ram did not have the factory trailer package. One trick I've found is to put a round style female plug on both the towing vehicle and the trailer, and use a pigtail that has the male end on both ends. This video shows where to locate the needed plug and how to test the wiring to make sure it works properly.
Or do I need to run one. In summary, you now have 7 wires: right turn, left turn, backup, 10 ga. Following the guidelines below makes it easier to tow a borrowed trailer or hook up to a new trailer with your old truck or vice versa, as they should all be similar. The ground wire on the vehicle harness must be properly connected. I still gained some on the run to the rear of the truck, and was not as worried since the new trucks use 12 gauge vs. That seems counter-intuitive to the way the rest of the install was set up.
The 4 blade connector under the dash was there too. This scenerio creates the maximum amperage load. Names removed because I have not asked anyone's permission. Is there a plug or wire for the blue electric brake wire somewhere around the back bumber? If it worked when first installed then went bad, there is probably a short in the trailer wiring. If it reads anything else select another location on the frame and scratch through the undercoating to get a good ground, if the new location reads 0 ohms, then move the grounding location for the wiring harness.
Bolt shear strength is not the intention, and that is why I remove all the frame wax before tightening the hitch to the frame. It is the sole responsibility of the person using this information to verify that all connections are made correctly. Use a wiring diagram to check that the correct wires are tapped into. I haven't found this wire yet but I found the 4 prong that goes to the wiring harness to the back of the truck. Wiring for the plugs is more or less standardized. The connectors are available in four way six way and seven way just like the factory connector.
I have an '05 Dakota and am looking to hook up a brake controller in the cab. The trailer connectors can get wet, especially when a boat trailer is backed into the water. We've worked hard over 11 years designing a website experience that makes it easy for anyone to idenify whether parts fit their car. Behind the driver's side tail light assembly and just below the pickup bed is the manufacturers wiring that goes into the tail light assembly. If so inclined you can use separate circuit breakers on all the relays. To do that, we'll press on the locking tab and simply separate the two. In most cases, a circuit tester, an ohmmeter and an understanding of how the system works is enough to troubleshoot trailer wiring problems.
Trucks with the factory tow package have the blue wire under the dash on the driver's side to tie into. I have a 97 1500, so there shouldn't be much of a difference. This is your brake wire from the controller. Make sure your meter has a fresh battery and unbroken leads with sharp points. That'll do it for the review and install of our Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer connector, part number C55329 on our 2001 Dodge Ram pickup. If the bolts are properly torqued, and I use good moly wheel bearing grease for smooth torque readings, the bolt holds because it is stretched a bit.
