How To Fix Trailer Lights?

What would cause trailer lights not to work?

Many trailer problems are due to a poor grounding connection, which is usually the white wire coming out of the trailer plug.

If the ground is poor, lights may work intermittently or not at all.

Even if the wiring to the plug is adequate, make sure that the ground connections to the trailer frame are good.

Why does only one side of my trailer lights work?

If the lights on one side still aren’t working, you may have a break in the wire. To test for a broken wire, check the color of the wire going to the socket and then find that wire on the connector in front.
