Get a universal kit. Looks like a little 2&1/2 by 2&1/2 black box, 3/4 inch thick. It has 4 wires with a female plug that hook right up to your trailer. The other side of the box has 5 wires that connect to the previa. Remove tail light lense - 2 screws. Pry back using screwdriver not outward. There should be 1 extra long wire (green) that goes to the right turn signal. This box will be fastened to the left side, or you can leave it free. Fish the long wire where you want it to go with a coat hanger.Just get it up to the bulbs on the right side. You need to go to radioshack for some tapping connecters (red for 18-22 gauge) you need 4. You need a Test Light screwdriver with alligator clip on long wire. Find a ground point (small screw under bumper). You need to keep testing by putting on your turn signals, taillights, and stop light to find which bulb is lighting up. On the right turn signal connect that long wire to the positive wire. If you did it right, your test light will show when you stick the point into the trailer female plug marked right turn. Do the same thing with the left turn signal (yellow wire). Now the tail and stop lights operate off the same bulb. Again, turn on your running lights. 2 positive wires go to the same bulb -- 2 filaments. Take your test light and touch metal crimped going into bottom of bulb. One will light test light, one won't. the one that lights is where you want to tap into with the brown wire or taillights. Should be marked - on the unit. That leaves 1 wire left. Put something on the brake pedal to hold it down. Now with test light touch other positive wire to that same bulb -- it should light up. Connect the red wire to that positive wire. stop lights. YOU ARE ONLY CONNECTING ONE WIRE FROM THE UNIT TO ONE POSITIVE WIRE THAT GOES TO THE BULB. THE WHITE WIRE IS GROUND AND WILL COMPLETE EVERY- THING ONCE IT IS HOOKED UP. Now take ground wire and attach it to the small screw that you used for testlight. Lift up rug - you should find a predrilled whole for ground. If not drill one - put a gromment on it.
