With some vehicles, you can purchase a WYE harness, which you install in the rear harness of the vehicle. You separate the provided plug and install the Y between the two plugs and the end of the Y becomes the trailer harness. Other vehicles you have to splice the wires. Normally brown wire is the running lights, Yellow is the left turn, and Green is the right turn. White is the ground between the trailer and the vehicle, for a total of 4 wires.

They probably have the wiring harness you need all setup to plug into the manufacturer's wiring harness.

Your best bet would be to call or go to your local auto parts store and tell them you need a "plug in" trailer wiring harness for your vehicle....these are very nice items and easy to install, as you just "plug" them into your exsisting vehicle's wiring harness. No need to "search out" for which wire goes where and no splicing of the wires either. They are more expensive than a "standard" wiring plug, but the "extra" cost is more than worth the "time" and headaches you will save!
when you buy the harness to wire in, the intructions for correct wiring will be on the harness packaging
