Hello, I am Randall Is there a way you can tell me the wire colors going to the 5 pin connector on Rover
Yes, give me 2 minutes.
Here are the colours.White/pinkGreen/PurpleBlueBlackBrownThese are the colours on the Range Rover
The Standard conector with the unit has 4 wires, the colours are;BlackRedBlueWhite
If I connect it the brown would not be used and the colours would be:White/Pink to the black connector to the brake unitGreen/purple to the red connector to the brake unitBlue to the blue connector to the brake unitBlack to the white connector to the brake unit
I have the diagram but very small to read so hard to send to you. Coding coming next
Brown= 12volts w/key W/P = 12volts battery hot all the time G/P = Brake light switch Black= ground Blue = to trailer brakes
the problem is i do not know what wire for controller needs to be hooked to what. I only h the Rover side
Did you get a diagram as to what wire is for what on the controller
From what I can see I am good to goController wiring is;Black is hot (+)Red is from brake switchWhite is ground (-)Blue goes to the trailer brakeDoes that look good to you?
Little concerned. You have nothing showing what wire goes to what on the controller. If not,, what model controller
Oh,, you did send how controller is marked?
I do, that was from the controller drawing I have hereController wiring is;Black is hot (+)Red is from brake switchWhite is ground (-)Blue goes to the trailer brake
Ok, you call on the Black wire on controller. you can go to the brown with 12 volts with key on OR go to the W/P for 12 volts all the time. its up to you. Hope this makes sense
Yes, many thanks. I will check with a multi meter and go for it. I would prefer the black on the switch but there are no pins for the brown.
I wired the harnes in but did not connect the controller. At the controller connector I have:12V Black12V on the red from the brake, when I brake it goes to zero12V on the blue on going to the trailerWhat I cannot understand is how come I have 12V on the blue as I would have thought this would be zero and the controller sent a voltage down the blue, does that question make sense?The controller is a "Intella-Stop Ultra with proportional control by Draw Tite
Worst I can do is blow a fuse :-)
