Customer Question
I'm having to rewire...

I'm having to rewire a 6 plug trailer connector for the trailer. I have tail lights, but no turn or brake on left side of trailer

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the connection?

I just put LED assemblys in and they worked last month. I have tail lights and yes I redid the connection so.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

1986 c30 Scottsdale

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your C30 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've searched up the proper wiring wiring diagrams and have done it correctly. I've check all my fuses under the dash they are good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Trailer brakes are disconnected on the trailer due to manfactuer error.

If you use a test light on the truck side of the connector, do you have power at each of the pins of the connector for the various light functions?
