Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer
The universal harness with four wires assumes that the brake lights and turn signals use the same bulbs. If your Blazer has separate bulbs for rear turn signals and brake lights, this 'universal' harness will not work unless you buy a separate adapter to merge the power to the brake lamps and turn signals for the trailer.

I'm assuming you're just going to splice into the tail light wiring so that's what these wire colors are:
at the tail lamp 3 way connector:
black and yellow = park lamp
dark green and brown = left turn signal
there should be another connector with violet and black wire for reverse lights.
the stop lights are turned on through the turn signal circuits.

The color codes will be different so when you take the harness off the 95 make sure that you label ALL the connectors to make it easier to install it on your Blazer. You may also have to change some sensors or switches up to 95 so that the harness will fit. Label all the empty connectors with their location in the 95 because they will be for options that may or may not be on your Blazer. If you have to access a wire diagram to complete the job then use the 95. DON'T let someone else take the 95 harness out for you andtake a rough diagram of your truck with the plug-ins marked for location and # of pins for wires. Basically it should fit but attention to detail is a must.
Also check out faxonautoliterature. They list GM service manuals but also GM books for engine interchanges that may prove to be very helpful. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: trailer wiring
Have you checked the fuse box under the hood? There are seperate fuses for the truck lights and the trailer lights. If the fuses look good use a 12 volt test light to check for power on the turn signal pins when the brake is pushed. The brake lights and turn signals use the same wires to work. Power here would indicate the wiring and fuses on the truck is all good, meaning the trouble is on the trailer. Check the bulbs to be sure they are the correct ones, they should be dual element bulbs. Make sure you have a good ground on the trailer, usually the white wire in the 4 way plug is grounded to the trailer frame, do not depend on the trailer ball to be the ground, this is asking for trouble.
