You're welcome snik

I have found my aftermarket trailer hitch set up to be very useful and have pulled about a 4500# trailer load about 1200 miles with no issues.

The factory wiring pigtail is becoming something of a unicorn so if one even thinks they might ever need a trailer hitch set up, grab the factory pigtail when you see it.

Thanks again everyone.
Got it done. Vacuumed out that whole area while I was in there. Harness in. Module in. Hitch on.
Just have to grind away the bumper support and then put all that mess on.

Another unsuccessful day. Spent most of the afternoon cutting up the bumper bracket to clear the hitch. Not the bumper bolts won't line up. If I catch one. I can't catch the other.
I'm wondering if it's bent, or shit. Maybe I have to cut away more material. I didn't think of that till just now while typing this.

Just went and looked again. Yep, I see a spot that could potentially be the problem. Gonna have to grind away a little more tomorrow. Hopefully that does the trick.

Have an aftermarket hitch, AHMll (trailer module) 7 way plug installed.
when trailer (LED) is plugged in, I have:

Park lights = Yes
Brake = No
Turn = No

Bought a second module and same outcome.
Plugged in a 7 way to 4 way with indicator, all 4 lights just keep blinking.

What am I missing ?

Any help from an old thread would greatly be appreciated.

Trailer module may not detect LED trailer lights correctly. Try a trailer with incandescent lamps.
