Question about 2006 Ford F-150

Ford f-150 brake light and blinker problems (from towing)

2004 Ford F-150 2wd single cab.
We recently towed a Uhaul trailer and the Uhaul center installed our lighting kit and everything worked fine until about 500 miles down the road, when all of a sudden we had no brake lights and no signals lights. We have removed the uhaul and disconnected the lighting.... we are thinking it might be a fuse problem but we don't have an owners manual and the nearest ford dealership is quite a distance.... can you help?

Check the fuse box located in the cab down by the drivers left knee. check all the fuses there, also consult your manual and check the fuse for the brake/tail lights. This sounds like a fuse problem more than anything. Thanks for using fixya! Good luck!

Sincerely,

JC

My 1996 Toyota 4Runner is equipped with a factory tow package; however, I'm unable to locate the plug for trailer taillights.


If you don't have a 'plug' for the trailer taillights, then the trailer renter, like Uhaul, sells bulb adapters that hook into the tail brake and light lamps that can power the trailer taillights.

I remember, I had a 1980 Suburban that didn't have a 'compatible' plug, and that's the way we resolved the problem.

Good luck on this towing.

The fuses for the trailer tow adapter are in the normal fuse panels.

Engine Compartment fuse panel
101 - Is the battery charge circuit ( hot in run position )
20 - Left Stop / Turn fuse
19 - Right Stop / Turn
5 - Trailer tow reversing lamps & Trailer Tow parking lamps

Cab Fuse Panel
23 - fuse for the relay for the trailer tow battery charge circuit

All of these are in the owners manual

If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

Trailer towing clearance lights do not work. All other lights and brakes work on trailer.


Check the fuse for the trailer tow parking lamps, this is engine compartment fuse # 5, 20A
The other thing to check is the trailer tow parking lamp relay.

Check the ground at the back of the truck. There is a single ground lug that includes the trailer tow adapters. Easiest to drop the spare to get to it.

Did you check the fuse for the trailer tow adapter parking lamps ? This is a separate fuse from the truck's parking lamps.
Fuse #10 is the Trailer Tow parking lamps ( via the trailer tow parking lamp relay ) and this is the same fuse for the trailer tow reversing lamps ( via the trailer tow reversing lamp relay ).

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.

Need to tow 1999 F250 about 150 miles home. What


If you have a stick shift, you rent a 2 wheel tow dolly and run the front tires onto it and strap it down. Put the truck in neutral and away you go.
If you have an Automatic you want all 4 wheels on a flatbed or tow trailer. You rent a car hauler trailer and piggyback the truck onto the trailer. A good rental will know the weight and rent you the right trailer.

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

Turn signals 2003 Ford F-150


Sounds like the turn blinker is shorted internally. Suggest you change it out, to test this.

My next check is that no wiring is melted and burned, such as can happen with any connection to tow a trailer. U-Haul has fine print that indemnify them of any problems they cause! have you towed anything recently?

Tow plug


I take it the blinkers and brake lights work ok when not hooked up to the trailer? If yes, then the wiring to the tow hitch is not hooked up correctly. How many wires to trailer pig tail connection? U can have up to 7 depending on what you tow. Check to make sure these wires are hooked up from the truck to tow plug correctly: 7 wired---
brown-Rt turn and brake light, yellow-backup, white-ground, blue-electric brake, green-tail running lights, black-battery charger, red-left turn signal and brake light. Let me know if u have something other than 7 wire, I'll get the wiring color and source info for u.
