When it comes to why your brakes are locking up after you added new wiring and grounds it sounds like there is still a loose wire or its not plugged in 100%. It could also be that you may wired your 7 round wiring incorrectly. I would recommend testing your vehicle and trailer plugs with Hook Probe Circuit Tester # PTW2993. You can also try to adjust and bed your brakes.

This tester will check circuits from a distance, check polarity, and find electrical shorts. If you're still having issues reach back out and we can look into it further.

I attached a review video link below.
