So trailer wiring has the turn signals and the stoplights on the same circuit and the running lights on another. Some vehicles are wired like this too but some are also wired where the blinker is on a separate bulb from the brake lights. So the convert the separate style to a combined style a converter box is needed.

That's what comes with the trailer wiring harnesses that fit your 2005 Scion xB like the Tekonsha part # 118414 which is a confirmed fit and the best option as it installs easily and is very reliable.
