    I Just got done wiring up my trailer for my Jon boat for use in the next couple weeks and i go to wire up my 7 pin to 4 pin connector and come to find out the 7 pin connector has no power flowing into it what so ever.(Verified with a Voltmeter).

    Whats the problem and how can i fix it?

    I looked at the fuses and they all check out.

    :confused:

    Thanks in advance

    Cam.

    I have done all the hi-pro mods for a life time, since I got this truck at a great price, I will be happy with showroom new.
    its hard to fix on the internet, but helping customers with problems like this, the first thing to do is NOT RIP ANYTHING OUT, but start at the beginning, and work your way back. check everything, fuses ect.

    Is it a factory unit. A dealer add on. Or a aftermarket unit.

    Check to make sure you have the towing tail relay. This is a diagram of the relay box under the hood on the drivers side. The towing tail relay can be seen on the bottom right of this diagram.

    UPDATE:

    So this morning i went to the toyota place for them to tell me that someone apparently was messing with my fuse box and broke the connector that allowed my pin connector to work. They cant order a new connector as they dont sell/make them anymore. So the guy could only quick fix it. >_> It cost me 48$ in labor ._.
