Check your fuses in the fuse box (you may have a couple fuse boxes), this should be the first thing you do.

SOURCE: 1995 Ford F350 having issues with marker lights

If everything works when trailer is not connected it's gotta be in the truck plug or trailer
sounds like a ground was lost in the left trailer light

they do sell trailer wiring simulators (about 20 bucks) you plug em in the truck and it simulates trailer lights with little led's on it

There is a small fuse box for the trailer, its there by the fuse box under the hood and next to the master cylinder, check that.

SOURCE: tail light wiring connectors and wiring diagram

A test light checking each connector would be faster and easier to do. Maybe somebody may have a illustration for you but by far a simple test light is all you need with a helper turning on the different lights as you check them out and writing all your findings down

03 mustang dash and tailights are working

if you installed an aftermarket stereo, the tail lights run through the illumination. make sure all wires are hooked hot to hot and ground to ground. if you installed it while battery was hooked up and touched a wire, most likely blew a fuse

The tail light sockets have 3 wires. white, brown, and black. I know black is ground. which wire is brake and turn?

I know the color code for chevy and the brown lead is for the running lights,soooo the white wire would be for the brake and turn sig.

Chevy S10. When my running lights are on everything works (except turn signals), front lights, tail lights brake lights. When I turn on my headlights turn signals still dont work everything comes on fine...

Check the grounds on your wiring.
If you have a trailer harness, make sure there are no shorts, or crusty connections

Good Luck chasing the gremlins

you need to check for ground, get a long wire and hook one end to the battery ground and touch it to your new socket, if it lights ground the socket.if not, hook a test light clip to the ground wire and use the sharp point to the 2 wires. one will be the tail light the other will be the turn sig and stop light. its easy to do. go for it you can do this... good day and good luck

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.
