Trailer lights work only when I use turn signal and....

3 posts in this topic

I found out what is wrong with my trailer lights not working. The lights work when I apply the brakes on the car or use the turn signals, but other than than, they do not work.

I found out that I have some melted black plastic in the harness connector itself, but cannot get it out of one thise little prongs. Any advice on how to get it out? It is in there pretty good. I have managed to get bits and pieces, but there is some in there....

How it got in there the first place, I have no clue!

It may be easier to just replace the entire connnector, rather than try and pick a bunch of dump out of it.

You should replace the connecter.

That * black plastic * stuff your seeing is likely melted plastic from a wire or connecter. You could have a dead short somewhere melting the plastic on your running lights... You have turn signals and brake lights .. Your problem is in your running (parking) lights.

Another possibilty is bypassing the connecter for your running lights to the trailer.. providing they are working on your vehicle.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
