Default Trailer Lights on a sedan?

So I tries wiring up some trailer lights on my 06 Sedan. I got the kit but found out the plug was k my present on wagons to hook it up with so I did the old splicing way. Needless to say this went bad. The brake lights would stay on and on the right blinker every light in the car would blink

I figure I need some form of converter or something to prevent this. Does anyone have any idea of how to do this?

I tried search but couldn't find anything useful

Yes you need a converter. All the wires you need are at the passenger side taillight.

I used a $15 non-powered converter from AutoZone

I've had good luck with the u haul converter. Just make sure to get a converter that stays inside the vehicle, some build it into the plug. That will last a year at best.

I went to auto zone and got a converter and wiring harness in one. Cost $30 but hopefully it works.
