    Quick test for the DTR, is if you ( with some help ) put the truck into reverse, does the trailer tow reverse signal on the 7 pin have voltage ( assuming the install was done for the trailer tow adapter ).

    This is the black w/ pink wire on the 7 pin adapter. Check the power from both the front, and the rear of the 7 pin adapter.

    The license plate lamps & reversing lamps share the ground with the tail lamps ( stop / turn / tail ), so if those work, next is to check the bulb socket for power ( burnt out bulb ).

    Guess burn out reverse bulbs could also be a cause, might want to check those as well.

    For information sake, the F150 DTR is on the driver's side of the transmission, mounted to the side of the tans, about center of the pan ( horizontal distance indicator )

The tail/running/license plate lights do have a fuse. Check the fuse box to see if it's blown. There is a fuse box under the driver's side dash, left kick panel and under the hood, on the passenger's side.

Liscense plate fuse location


Welcome to FixYa!

On the link below is the owners manual for the edge page 258 slot # 22.

If it is just the license plate light that is out I would check the bulbs. The reason why is that the license plate light is on the same cerict as the parking lights.

My license plate lights dont work help?


the bulb is most likely burned out. there are a few types of license plate lights out there. some where you have to replace the whoel unit and some that have replaceable bulbs. both you can find at your local parts store.

Lacking an owner's manual, we weren't aware that there was a parking light switch on top of the steering wheel when this happened to our car. We had inadvertently switched that on. Did you check that?

Dome light/license plate light out


check the fuse panel and make sure you dont have a blown fuse. If one looks black replace it. Check your owners manual for fuse panel location and for specific fuse.
