Trailer lights

I have a 1992 Pontiac Grand AM that I want to use to pull my boat. I just installed a hitch but now I'm trying to hook up the trailer lights. I have a 4 prong connector (3 male prongs and 1 female prong) on the connector on the trailer. I also have the connector that matches the trailer connector for the car. Basically all I have to do is cut and splice the wires in the car to the wires on my connector. Does anyone know how to do this properly? Or know of anywhere where I could find out? In the car I have 2 brown wires, 2 black, 1 yellow, and 1 green. Thanks.

STOP!

Go to the parts store and get the Hoppy Litemate simple plug in connectors. No splicing, it uses the vehicle connectors to install. Much better.

I'll secound Joes opinion. find the one for your vehicle and its as simple as unplugging a connector in the loom and plugging the two halves into the traile ligh loom.

A plug in is the safest way to go.
I think the last one I bought was about 15.00
at a U-Haul store even.I also know it is a whole lot
less than the ticket you could get or the wiring you'll
have to replace if you accidentally cross the wrong wires.
