The purpose of a converter is to combine the signals from separate Park, Brake, and Turn signal lights (as most modern vehicles have) into Park and Brake/Turn signal lights (as all 4wire trailers, and most pre-1970 vehicles had)MG Pilot said:What is a powered converter?
I have not had a problem, but have only used it for a brake light receiver plug, and my cargo platform which has only one Brake/Park/Turn bulb on each side.MG Pilot said:So I'm wondering if the reason they switched to the powered converter is because the 03 passive converter was fusing out too often.
I just installed the harness on mine, but have yet to use it. Has your fused??
I would hope not. It the converter ('03 style) can not run a standard 4 wwire trailer, Honda should not have sold it that way.MG Pilot said:I have a 4X8 w/ one running light on each side and the brake/turn lights in the back. Do you think I will have any problems?
Or, should I disconnect the running lights on the side?
