Trailer Light Help...

So Iím having a strange problem where my trailer lights were working fine two weeks ago however just last week I tried connecting to a uhaul trailer and no dice. I was able to confirm that it is indeed the car as the guy was kind enough to show me the lights worked using his truck. The last rental I was having intermittent issues but it seemed to resolve itself after I fiddled with the trailer connector but now Iím having no luck.

Iím wondering if anyone can try a test for me and with just the ignition on, do you get power to the 4-pin connector at the hitch? I tested mine and I wasnít able to see any voltage across the various pins. Iím just not sure if I should see voltage to those pins with the lights on and the key set to on, not running.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also all fuses checked out ok.

Well after further testing I found the problem. The harness connector on the hitch side somehow came just loose enough to not make contact with terminals. Not sure how it got loose but I think we are back in business.
