Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

2 Answers

I have one 'pin' not getting voltage for my trailor hook up

When I hooked up my boat this year my brake lights and turn signals did not work. ( I pulled my boat all last season and they worked fined). Using a meter I found there is one 'pin' not getting voltage. I have traced it back to the coupling above the spare tire where about 10 wires connect. Is there a free wiring diagram to be found online? Is there any advice?

    Thanks so much for the help. A follow-up question: is there another connector before the firewall? I'm not getting voltage at the connector above he spare tire (under the truck bed).

You can go into an auto zone and on the package is a diagram, they will usually let you write the info you need.

what wire is showing, i know yellow and green are turn and white ground and brown are running lights. so you will get no power to the white but it has to be grounded, or no lights either, sometimes the connections go bad. truck side and trailer side.

also there is a quick connect for your truck if it is the 150, so much easier and not tracking wires down

It does not take long for a connection to co bad, my race trailer had a little deamon in it, had to rewire the thing about 3 to 4 times a year, all new stuff, it just hated the trailer

    Not that i know of, the quick connect is usually on the driver side, or close to center in the rear, with that many wires sounds like someone had tried that befor, once you get this done take all the unused wires out. this will eliminate the potential for a dead short, blowen fuses ect.



    on some trucks i did notice another connection in the front lights, this was a feature that came for towing, and you could hook your socket up to the truck being pulled, i dont thing they use that anymore, but i do know the connection is still there in some trucks,



    also if there is no power to that wire, where is it comming from? i put my volt meter on alarm and clip that wire with one lead, then go to the front and find the end, the meter will beep when you find it, means you have a complete circut

Changed fuses fow tow connector. #3 and # 7. Now the left trailer light,signal, brake,etc works while only right tail light on trailer still works. On right side, the tail works, but not the brake,or...


I would recommend taking out the tail light. Get a test light, have an assantant step on brake. U will see the bulb in tailamp light up. Probe the wire w/your test lamp. That is brake wire. Repeat that process for blinker.. Drop down those two wires. Hook that to the same side on trailor. Repeat for left and you should be all set.

We have a 2003 f250 super duty. We have no power


Check fuse #6 20amp on your interior fuse panel it may be blown. The relays are located in an auxillary relay box located under the hood on the drivers side fender near the firewall. The system uses 2 relays. One relay turns on for left turn signal, other relay turns on for right signal. Both relays turn on for brake lamps. The fuse #6 is more likely the problem. If the fuse is blown, replace it, wiggle the wiring on the trailer while someone steps on brakes to check for shorts.

When I hook up to a trailer, the left turn signal and the left brake light won't work. I have tried several trailers with the same results. I own a 2003 gmc 3/4 ton pickup. I have two places to connect the...


it sounds like either the wires controling the left brake light and turn signal are borken or loose on your truck. or there could be a problem with the ground for the trailer hookup. you should take a volt meter and then have someone put the brake on and test at the hook on the truck side to see if you are getting any voltage there and do the same thing with the turn signal. if you do not have any voltage there you need to trace the wires back up into the truck to find where you do have voltage . you may find a broken wire as you go. How many wires are there in your trailer hook up?

I need to hook up a boat trailor Whats the color code for a 1995


I suspect that the 4 wire harness includes a ground, so you may not be able to connect both brake lights and turn signals, which are separate lamps on the pickup. You may need to get an adapter.

In any case, the color codes on the pickup are:

Tail lights -- pink/blue
Brake Lights -- green/yellow
Left turn signal -- gray/blue
Right turn signal -- gray/red
Ground -- black

04 f 250 trailor hook up


Check your receptacle with a test light, to find out if it's the truck or the trailer that's the problem. If you have power at the truck, then take your trailer rceptacle apart, and see what's going on in there. If you don't find it in the plug ins, just work your way back with a test light. Its corrosion or a broken wire somewhere. Wiring can drive you nuts.

the wire you maybe talking about could posibly be for the trailer brake controller, which you have to buy serperate i'm not to sure how much it will run you but i would look into that because that is what the extra wire is usually forwith the 7 prong trailer plugs

Chevy c2500 siveraldo 8cyl no passenger brake light/turn signal


This sounds like some wires may not be connected or connected improperly.On this vehicle the wire colors are: Brown=parking lights,green=right turn/brake,yellow=left turn/brake. You will have to drop the spare tire to get a good look at these.
