Default Problem with hitch wiring

Installed a Curt trailer hitch with the included wiring harness.

My driver side rear lights do not turn on when I turn my lights on at night, unless I step on the brakes.

Everything is plugged in properly and isnt loose.

As soon as I unplug the harness and plug the original harness back into the light it works but my trailer light does not.

I checked the bulbs on the trailer. They work perfectly when the harness is plugged into the car harness.
The problem is that when the trailer is not attached, the driver rear light does not turn on when I turn my lights on; unless i step on the brake. Then it lights up.

The harness cant be bad b/c it works all lights. Just not the lights of the car and the trailer at the same time.
