even though you checked all fuses and relays and have power the relay could over heat and shut them down. switch relay with another relay and check again. does the front markers go out also or just the rear?

Tail lights & dash lights went out. Can't locate the correct location to replace the relay on my 2002 pontiac grand am gt


not likely to have a relay in these circuits. to lose both of these something else like a ground could be the problem. try the tail lights first do you have any thing? brake lights backup light , running light. look for fuse in inside fuse box and check for voltage at the fuse. need more info from you. good luck

No trailer turn signals tail lights work . you


If it is a factory trailer package then there are fuses for the left turn signal and the right turn signal for the trailer connector. Check your owners manual for the location of these two fuses.

2001 F150 supercrew w/ factory towing - No tail lights on trailer


Not sure which fuse you checked.
The Engine Compartment Fuse Panel ( Battery Junction Box / BJB ) is where the fuse is for the trailer tow adapter parking lamps.
Fuse # 5 is the fuse for the parking lamps, and the reversing lamps.

Next is the trailer tow adapter park lamp relay. This is what BJB Fuse #5 feeds, and the coil is operated by the truck's parking lamps. This is also in the BJB, Relay 201, it is the 1/2 size relay.

Not sure what you took a resistance reading from on the trailer tow adapter.

If you want, you can pull the trailer tow park lamp relay, and jumper the normally open contacts, which should provide power at the trailer tow adapters, regardless of the truck's lights.

I have a 2008 Ford F 150 with factory installed trailer wiring. I bought a trailer plug tester. It shows the tail light function to be dead. Brake lights, turn signals all work. Any ideas?


The trailer tow adapter parking lamps is fuse #10 in the cab fuse panel. There is also a trailer tow parking lamp relay that powers them, which could have a problem as well.
Start with the fuse, and maybe check both the 7 pin and the 4 pin for the parking lamps, could be a corroded pin on one of them causing the tester to not see the power on the pin.

F150 Ford 1998 is there a fuse for a trailer and where is it located? Thank you


There are a few fuses for the trailer tow adapter.

1st, is theodd location on the 97-98, engine mini fuse panel has a 20 A fuse forthe stop / turn lamps. Have seen it covered in tape from the factory onsome 97-98 MY trucks.
This is on page 142 in the owners 1997 manual, all the revisions for the 1998 owners manual I have seen do not include this fuse box for some reason.

Download a PDF version from Ford, for the 1997 MY at :

https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/owners_manuals/default.asp

This is a picture of the Power Distribution Box, additional relay box and engine mini fuse panel with the covers off. The 20A in the upper right panel with the red base, is the trailer stop/turn fuse.

The others :
1. Power Distribution Panel / engine compartment fuse panel
Fuse #1 - Trailer tow back-up and tail lamps
Fuse #16 - Trailer tow battery charge and stop/turn lamps
Fuse #28 - Trailer tow electronic brake

2. Instrument Panel Fuses ( cab fuse panel by hood release )
#23 - trailer tow battery charge relay

Left tail light out on 02 S10


I had this same symptom after I pulled a trailer that had light "issues". I tried wiggling the trailer light connector around until the trailer lights begin working. Next think I know they were not working again and now my left tail light was out. I thought it odd that is wasn't both lights out being on the same fuse, but checked wiring etc with no problems found. Mine turned out to be the "left tail light fuse" in the engine compartment fuse box. All of the parking and tail lights as independently fuse, You can tell which one it is by the guide on the fuse box lid. You will be looking for a 10 amp (red) fuse near the center of the fuse box.
