Troubleshooting New Wiring On Landscape Trailer Working Until Taillights Were Wired In  


i ran a new wiring kit for my landscape trailer the side lights all come on until I wired the tail lights. i know all the lights work . each running light has its own ground and the tail lights are stud mounted and grounded through the stud. any suggestions


Expert Reply:

Since the running lights worked until you installed the tail lights on your trailer, it sounds like a bad/weak ground.

How exactly did you ground the main ground up front? I'd check that it's secured to clean metal and didn't come loose. It's a tell tale ground issue symptom that when multiple lights are powered the ground cannot handle that much load and turns off.

Let me know what you find and we can continue troubleshooting if needed.
