There is a small box hooked to the car wiring and the other side the trailer wires. Both sides have a yellow, green, brown, and white wires the only difference is a red wire for the brakes. My problem is if I put the right blinker on and I use a test light to check both right and left blinkers blink. Same when I use the right. Any clue to where I should start?? Thank You.

    The colors of wires and junction you describe is a generic American trailer wiring accessory not a Dodge wiring component. For a decent wiring diagram, Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info.
    and get an online repair manual subscription. Alldata is a good source for information. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
