Customer Question

2009 Acadia with towing provisions. I added the hitch and extension wiring harness for the 7 point hookup to the hitch from the female socket attachment behind the right rear quarter panel. No power to the trailer.
Do I also need to add fuses?

I don't have access to car at the moment. I'll have to check and reply later. Is there a relay associated with trailer tow to locate?
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

Yes, trailer backup relay and a fuse. Does the trailer have a braking system on it?

I can get the bulletin for it and put it in a PDF file, (it is rather large) and send it to your email address for as little as allowed.
