7 Pin Lighting Connections (12N)
Trailer lights in the UK are normallly connected using a 7 pin plug and socket known as a 12N using a black cable. If you look at a socket or plug you should be able to see the pin lables (1-7).
In some cases and more often in Europe the trailer light will be connected using a 13 pin plug and socket. If you have a 13 pin socket fitted to your vehicle we have an adaptor to plug in so you can use a normal 7 pin plug.
The table below with the diagram explain the connections used on a 7 pin setup.

Notes for 12N Wiring
Number plate lights on the trailer should be wired to avoid common contact between pins 5 & 7 of the 12N socket.
