Question about 2002 Ford Explorer Sport
We purchased a 2002 ford explorer sport used. I am having problems with the rear taillights and turn signal lights, both are not working but the upper brake light works and the back up lights work. First like most I tryed the fuse...then he bulbs that did not work next both lightbulb sockets still nothing then I tryed the relay under the dash on the right... nothing. I even tryed the turn signal switch.. still was not working... does anyone have any other ideas Thanks Mike
I asked that becauses of the wiring for the tow setup. If the previous owner had uhaul or one of the other tow companies out there install the wires for the tow package they use a crappy little product that they clamp to the wire and push a pin that cuts the casing and connects the circuit. It also seriously weakens the cables, and lets water in to the wire. Since you have a tow package I'd focus on those wires back there sounds like you may have a short. Those pins do have some wire exposure when installed right and I've seen them bundled and taped on the early 2000's explorers without being individually taped first, which leads to shorts and non working turn signals and brake lights.

Repair the trailer harnes for short.
Re-ground the wires.
