Tested as you said. Put wire from 12V to right blinker and both right and left lit up. Put 12V to left blinker and both lit up. Not sure what that means. [emoticon]

Also did same with running lights and they all came on as they were supposed to.

Tested as wnjj suggested above. Touched 12V to right turn signal and both flashed. Same with left turn signal, both flashed.

Probably going to require pulling both taillight assemblies and do wire tracing. Somewhere both sides are tied together. Where ever they tied the left taillight to the right taillight they likely also tied the left stoplight to the right stoplight.

I think you need to state more clearly. DON'T say flashed. If you connect 12 volts to either the Left or Right, they will NOT flash. They will be lit, but not flash. If they DO flash, with constant 12 volt, that is a whole other problem. You can have a smashed/cut 7 way cord from the trailer. Have you check that? Most common cause is the Wrong bulb/s in the rear trailer light assbly UNLESS you have LED trailer rear lights. Doug

Agreed. I would first check up front where the 7-way cable breaks out into individual wires. Some manufacturers do this inside of a little box on the tongue frame.

I am learning from you people and the interweb. After a few searches I see the ESCO KAL wiring harness has 6 wires (yellow being aux), with red(LT&B) brown(RT&B), green(tail lights).

The harness wires go in to, (I wish I was smart enough to know what every part was called) a rectangular rubber "thingy", and a red, brown, green set of wires comes out the other side and goes to the back of my trailer.

Anyone who has forgotten more that I will ever know is laughing at my ignorance.

Anyway, it looks as if the right wires are indeed going to my tail light modules.

Carefully check the cord between that box and the 7 pin plug. Is the cord or the plug cut or damaged in any way? Is the actual plug end a molded one piece Or has the end been cut and replaced?

Why did you drive it off the lot if the lights didn't work properly??
