Had ons hellavu problem with Papa S tail lights.

individually everything is working perfectly. But as soon as you use 2 lights together (brake and flick or normal lights and flickers) all hell brake loose. Disco ligte se moses. So much so that it de-activated the ABS on the Toytjie.

First thing I did, send in the Toytjie to Toyota and let them check out the socket. Nothing was wrong. So I connected the Van to another vehicle. O hell.... same story.

So the I checked each and every wire on the van. Everything tested perfect......except the Blue wire (spare) was cut off before the socket. As it was a spare I did not worry about it. I also bought new LED lights for the van, but I refused to install them before I find the fault.  Eventually I decided to connect the Blue wire.....en wragtag, ja nee......everything worked 100%.

So I fitted the LED, s and what a difference? 

Yes I had a horrible BLUE WEEKEND. First a blue wire stuffing me around and then a Blue Team embarrassing me.

Maar nou skyn daar ten minste a lig in die tonnel???? Nee agter die karavaan hahahahaha.

At last !!!!

Hannes, jy sal maar moet aandag gee, iemand het êrens die blou draad (wat eintlik spaar is vir yskas) vir iets anders gebruik. Oppas dat die spulletjie nie probleme maak nie, dalk kry jy groot skade.

If you are talking about the blue wire on pin 2 of the caravan plug, it is acting as the negative earth return, via the fridge element.
The light earth should be white & connected to pin 3.

Tony (Docker), I cannot make out your statement re blue acting as negative earth return via fridge element??

Normally you would  wire your caravan fridge via number 2, blue wire, as to get 12v to your fridge. When you only have a trailer, WITHOUT fridge, you have nothing connected on your trailer coupling to the blue wire.

I had about 7 caravans, and at same time luggage trailers, and had no problems at all. All the caravans had 12v fridges which I ran through the blue wire.

I think in this case someone fiddled with the wiring, hence the problem. It could so happened that the said person or instance connected the wiring on the caravan's plug incorrectly?? which could be the problem, BUT, the blue wire on the tow vehicle is a 12v wire coming from the alternator, if connected properly, and cannot act as earth??? so the problem could be bigger than just a incorrrect connection.

Frans,

Ja stem, het ook aan die blou ding wat nie 'n bul is nie gedink, iewers het die vorige ou dit aan 12v+ gekoppel om iets te laat werk en nou is dit hoekom die ligte begin disco as jy hom los maak.  Ek sal ook skrikkerig wees vir waar daai draad gekoppel is.

Oppad na die volgende kamp.

Nou het julle my bekommerd.

Die karavaan se socket is vervang en soos met alle lui mense is daar verskillende kleure draad op gesit. Ek het wel elkeen gevolg en dieselfde diagram gebruik soos Docker sn en elke kleur pas korrek.

Daar is nie 12v in die wa nie. Al gaan die blou draad na die yskas toe, behoort dit niks te maak nie want my wiskunde se vir my slegs 12v kom van die kar af? Dis te min om die 220v yskas se lig aan te skakel of is ek verkeerd?

Wat kan vekeerd gaan?

Toets daai blou draad of hy krag in het aan die kar se kant en kyk dan waar gaan die blou draad orals heen.

Dis nie nou sommer veronderstel om na yskas te gaan nie.. dis net n spaar en is soms nie eens gekoppel in n karavaan of wa nie.. erens is iets net verkeerd gekoppel.. ek sien wel baie keer foute met bedrading op die goedte, so dis nie onmoontlik nie..
