    I need to equip my 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager to pull a small utility
    trailer. I have some questions regarding the brake/turn signal lights
    for the trailer:

    1) Would my vehicle have a connector on a wiring harnass at the rear
    that I could plug into to make those connections or would that only be
    there if my car had been ordered with a towing option? (Car was
    purchased used, could I tell of a towing option was ordered from the

    2) If there is no previously installed connector on the vehicle is
    there anything to be concerned about with tapping into the existing
    wiring going to the rear lights? (excessive additional load, etc.?)

    3) I assume there are several types of electrical connectors to mate
    with the trailer connector, is there a style that is most widely
    accepted and more broadly used than others? Is there a pin out
    standard to follow? (There would be no connection required for

    Thanks fo rthe insight.

    My '98 came with the towing option. There was a wiring harness, minus
    the connector, that was folded up under the van on the left side. near
    the back bumper. I think there were four wires molded together (one
    for the left turn signal, right turn signal, ground, and lights and
    I had the flasher go bad on this vehicle and the dealer had two part
    numbers listed for the flasher. One was more money, so I suspect it
    may have been a heavy duty flasher to account for the extra lighting
    needs of the trailer.

    Thanks for responding! I was beginning to wonder if there were any
    folks out there with some trailer expertise.

    I'll poke around teh bumper tomorrow while it is still light out and
    see if I can find any loose wiring.
