Right Side Hazzard on Trailer not Flashing

Hi all, I have wired my trailer to my Goldwing Trike. I have the 5 wire to 4 wire converter from Wingstuff. Verified wiring is correct 5 times.

Everything works perfect, Tail Lights, Right Turn, Left Turn, Blinkers, and Brake lights all work perfectly on bike and trailer. Have bike grounded and even did a separate ground on the trailer.

When I turn on the Hazard Lights, work great on Bike and only the left side of the Trailer Flashes. Not the Right side. I have tried everything I know of.
Could my 5-4 wire converter be bad?

Any suggestions? Thanks so much.

Don't see how but have you checked the power at the trailer connector when in 4 way mode?

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Yup, been there done that, and it won't ever work right.

I threw away all of the crapola 5 to 4 wire stuff..... a couple of good friends had to hit me over the head with a hammer before I believed them..........

but, all you need to do is remove all of that stuff.

Run the right turn signal and connect it to the trailer's "stop light", this becomes your new turn signal.

do the same for the left.

run the running lights to the normal running lights on the trailer.... the smaller of the two filaments in the 1157 bulbs.

Now, acquire some nice looking stop lights. I highly recommend the SEMA trucker's LED lights which can be bought at any auto parts store. The bracket to mount them can be used on the side of a trailer, as I did. Or, you can flush mount them and use a chrome bezel.

To this new brake light, all you do is run a new Brake Light wire, right off of the Stop lights for the bike... and wallah! you are done.

now, the Hazard lights will work exactly like they are supposed to.

Thanks John, I went that route first and didn't realize I had no blinkers when I rode to CO last year. When I turned the blinkers on, it looked like flashers. My Trailer has the Goldwing Saddle bag lights. Not sure if that makes a difference wiring them direct like you said? I will give it a shot, I don't know what else to try.

Yup, know what you did alright

you hooked up the brake lights, and viola, no turn signals.

the big secret is to connect the bike's turn signals to the trailer's "brake light" filaments... that gives a very bright turn signal....

you just need to acquire some very bright separate Brake Lights....
I and several others are using the SEMA Trucker's brake lights...

IIRC, there are about 36? SuperBright LEDs in that thing....
I just know it is really bright.

I need to go out and make a video to show you the effect...
be right back

Thanks so much John, I am going to give that a try. Can I not use the brake light already in the trailer? They are the Honda Saddle Bag lights, with the amber turn signals and red tail and break.

I have two videos uploading now, it will be more than an hour because of my very slow ADSL link to the world wide web...

If those trailer lights you speak of are indeed 3 separate circuits, yes, you can.


All you need do then, is wire those to the same exact wire color as the bike's saddle bag lights are.

here is the 1st video, this is just sitting on the bike's seat, and looking back over the trailer to show how bright those LED SEMA lights are.





The next video, will show the trailer lights from the rear of the trailer...
