    My trailer light module crapped out

    Hi,

    The lights on my trailer stopped working and I need some help. I checked the lights on the trailer with a 12 volt source. All work fine. I then checked the fuses on the car and again everything works fine. The connector has LED indicators in it. They light up but are very dull. The car ( 2006 Saturn Vue ) has an aftermarket light module that connects to the rear light wires. My guess is the module went bad. Where do I get a new one and is there a special one I should buy? I see a bunch online. I don't have a problem installing it I just want to make sure I get the right one. the one in there now is hardwired and has no writing or part numbe ron it.The ones I'm seeing online are T tap. Not sure which is better. - Scott

    I can't say what the problem is in yours, but I had a '92 Saturn SL smoke a 25 dollar trailer light module...
    I replaced it with a powered module (no diode voltage drop in a powered unit, it has a 12v +ve lead as well as running, brake, L & R turn leads and a ground conductor), and never had any more trouble.

    the t connectors are easy to use and install, un plug your tail light harness, plug the connector in the middle and your off to the water

    Thanks guys - I replaced the controller with a new one. Went with the direct battery fed model. Works great. Lights are brighter to.
