My Trailer lights aren't working, The lights on my trailer

Customer Question
My Trailer lights aren't working JA...
My Trailer lights aren't working
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: The lights on my trailer when connected to my mercedes
JA: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?
Customer: 2010 ML 350 bluetec
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I just had it at the dealer but im running out of time and I have to travel to Nebraska so im in a time crunch. They keep saying its coded for trailer lights. I get power to the fuse. (70) power to my hitch 7 pin along with a good ground. and power to my electronic brake controller (fuse 71) (and the controller itself lights up) But none of the other pins work. (Brake lights, backup lights, turn signals, running lights) at the 7 pin socker socket*
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: ok
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: That I have had the rear sam "coded" today. I have all MBZ parts. I have relay U installed. If he can help me fix it is there a way I can check if the rear sam was coded correctly? Im open to trying anything and im handy with a volt meter or test light

SO U533 is for the trailer hitch and i dont see it in your option list.

did you install the hitch or ???

also the pins will NOT have power, the rear sam cuts power out to the trailer socket if it does not sense the correct amount of resistance, that is why i asked if it was led, if the trailer is led then the lights will NOT illuminate without a special adapter. hope this helps. let me know if you need more info or help, Please take a second and click the stars at the top of the screen to rate me so i may receive my credit , 5 stars is ideal , please request me in the future.
Keep in mind then when you rate it does not end our conversation. you can still return here to me for follow up information if needed, Lou P.
