2001 jeep cherokee tow light wiring
Ive got a 2001 sport that already had a hitch and 6 blade wiring adapter installed on it for the tow light hook up. It is a 6 blade adapter to a 4 pin normal trailer wire. This was already on it and I am trying to replace it as it was completely corroded and no longer functioned.
So I went out and got a replacement one with adapter and housing. It is the Hopkins one.
This has turned into more then I thought and now its causing me to blow the #7 tail light fuse if its not hooked up properly. So its either hook it up right or not use it at all.
here is my issue, there are 4 wires that were originally there on the original 6 blade wiring adapter already on the jeep and the hitch when i got it. They are Green, White, Yellow, and Brown.
I cannot for the life of me figure out the order those 4 wires go into the 6 blade adapter. I even have a light thing to tell me if there all good as it should light up. The most frustrating part of all is there is even worded color coding on the 6 blade adapter, so you would think that the corresponding colors of the already there wires, would just screw/attach to them, but only 3 of them are there actually there. The White, Green, and Brown wires have corresponding areas to attach to, the yellow does not.
Even then the order seems to be of a random/guess to get all the lights to light up.
Anyone have any help on this? this is beyond stupid and I never thought this would be so complicated. If anything, is there something that I can get to say hell with the 6 blade one? I dont even know how it was on there in the first place if its this much trouble to get a replacement on.
The old one was way to corroded to make any sense of the original wiring.
All I am trying to do was replace what is already there, but the wiring is ****ed up and pissing me off at this point.
Any help would be appreciated thanks.
