SOURCE: r.h trailer plug has no out put? checked all fuses, all the signals on the truck are fine? just the trailer plug

Take the plug apart (small set screw on the side) and make sure one of the wires hasn't popped out. Take out the screw and slide off the cover to see.
You will need a mini screwdriver to re-tighten the brass terminal if its the case.
Have you tested this with a test lite?
Good luck.....

Check the fuses under the hood near the brake booster. The trailer fuse are usually in one of those fuse/relay boxes. Good luck.

SOURCE: LEFT TRAILER TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT WORK

I have seen once before that the fuse box was bad on a 2003 Dodge 3500. I had power in and nothing out. We had to replace the box. Not cheap! Hope it is simple like a loose connection though. I think I had to pull the inner fender on the drivers side to access the bottom of the fuse box. Pain in the ****, but...

Trailer plug does not have juice to it.......1997 ford expedition


Hi,
These plugs are usually hard wired into the rear lighting - Brake lights,Tail lights, indicators etc. You need to check the earth/ground wire also.
Trace the wiring and make sure there are no breaks in the wiring from the trailer plug.
Hope this helps.

Trailer wiring


Have you checked the fuse box under the hood? There are seperate fuses for the truck lights and the trailer lights. If the fuses look good use a 12 volt test light to check for power on the turn signal pins when the brake is pushed. The brake lights and turn signals use the same wires to work. Power here would indicate the wiring and fuses on the truck is all good, meaning the trouble is on the trailer. Check the bulbs to be sure they are the correct ones, they should be dual element bulbs. Make sure you have a good ground on the trailer, usually the white wire in the 4 way plug is grounded to the trailer frame, do not depend on the trailer ball to be the ground, this is asking for trouble.

1997 Ford F250HD 7.3 PSD. When i plug in my trailer lights the running lights on the trailer are always on.


The power lead on truck or trailer are in wrong spot. So it is feeding power to your parking lights all the time. Open plug on trailer and move wire one turn counter clockwise.

I have a 2003 chevy hd duramax diesel, the right brake and turn signal work fine on the truck, but doesn't work on the trailer. I checked the right trailer stop and turn signal fuse and it is fine. I...


I lost the light in the 2003 Duramax a few week ago.I just found a blown fuse under the hood in that big fuse panel by the driver side. It was the 15 amp mini fuse on the upper left hand corner. There was a white arrow pointing to it. Evidently someone has had the problem before. I bet that's my culprit

I have a 1997 Ford F150 4x4 Supercab Stepside with 5.4L and factory towing package. On the factory trailer wiring plug I am not getting power for turn signals or brake lights. Running lights and brake...


It is a possible option that the relays for the Stop / Turn are having an issue or the fuse in the Engine Mini panel is blown ( page 142 of the 1997 owners manual )

On the 1997/98 MY this is in the aux relay box in between the Engine Compartment fuse panel and the engine mini fuse panel.

The output of the MFS ( Multifunction switch ) triggers the relays, to use the trailer tow fuse to operate the trailer lamps. The fuse to supply power to the Normally Open contacts on the trailer relays should be hot at all times. You can verify this with the diagram below by metering from pin #3 to pin # 2 [ground for coil] or to another known ground.

These are 1/2 size Ford ISO relays, and can be jumpered to make testing easier ( and with this diagram you can bench test them with a meter to check resistance over the Normally Open contacts, when applying power and ground to the coil ).

I am not 100% sure on the 97/98 MY F-150 about the location of this connector, but the 99-03 have all the wires to the rear of the truck via a connector along the driver's side frame rail, that you can check for ( easiest with the spare lowered )

Start with the Fuse in the Engine Mini panel, to see if the 20A fuse is good and work back towards the trailer tow adapter via the relays. I am going with the obvious blown fuse for the Stop/Turn lamps for the trailer.

Trailer Lighting Kit


Do u have a 4,5,6,or 7 way (wire) system? If it's 4 way it allows basic hookup for 3 lighting functions:
GREEN is right turn signal and stop light, YELLOW is left turn signal and stop light, BROWN is license, and side marker lights, WHITE is ground.

5way is same as above, but adds a BLUE wire for brake signal or aux. power. Its used on pop up campers, utility and boat trailers.

6way (rectangle plug) green=right turn signal, yellow=left turn signal, brown=taillight, white=ground, red and blue can be used for brake control or auxilary. Used on small motorcycle trailers, snowmobile trailers, utility trailers.

6way Round Plug, same as above, but blue is electric brakes, and black (sometimes red,) 12v; note:sometimes red/black need to be reversed w/ blue to suit the trailer.

7way adds an additional pin at plug in for 12volt power or back up lights. Whoa! hope that answers your question w/out confusing u. Let me know if u need more info.
