Ya look for a fuse when u find it and replace it keep an eye on it if it blows again shortly after putting it in you have what is call a short and you will need to take it to an electrically certified mechanic.

Usually if you turn on your turn signal and it stays lit solid inside, it's telling you the bulb is bad in your turn signal outside. I would check your bulbs first. Same for the backup lights.

2003 Yukon XL Denali Trailer Light Problems


Lighting control module ? ?????? Hazard / flasher module ! Now ( there''s not even an electrical signal where the fuse plugs into the interior fuse panel.) What FUSE ??????

Stop Lamps
The STOP LP 25 A fuse in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the normally open stop lamp switch. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the switch contacts close and battery positive voltage is supplied to both the STOP 15 A fuse and the CHMSL 10 A fuse in the I/P fuse block, and to the turn signal/hazard module. The turn signal/hazard module then supplies voltage to both of the trailer rear turn/stop lamp supply voltage circuits. The voltage from the CHMSL 10 A fuse is to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) and the trailer jumper harness. The voltage from the STOP 15 A fuse is to the stop lamps, throttle actuator control (TAC) module, and the cruise control.
Backup Lamps
The backup lamp request signal is sent from the powertrain control module (PCM) to the body control module (BCM) on the Class 2 message system. This signal is based on the park neutral position (PNP) switch signal. The BCM supplies voltage on the backup lamp supply voltage circuit to the backup lamps and to the automatic day/night mirror. Voltage for the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit and backup lamp supply voltage circuit is from the TBC B fuse in the instrument panel fuse block directly through the BCM to these circuits. A short to ground on either of these circuits will open the fuse. The backup lamps are grounded at G401.
For trailer wiring, a separate backup lamp circuit is connected through the underhood fuse block from the TRLR B/U 10 A fuse to the trailer wiring harness.
Turn Signal/Hazard Lamps
The IGN E 10 A fuse in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the turn signal/hazard switch assembly. The FLASH 25 A fuse in the I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the turn signal/flasher module and ground is supplied at G200. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, a voltage signal is completed from the turn signal switch to the turn sign/flasher module. When the hazard flasher switch is activated, a ground signal is completed from the turn signal/hazard switch to the turn sign/flasher module. The turn sign/flasher module then sends an on-off voltage signal through the LT TRLR, RT TRLR, LT TURN or RT TURN 10 A fuses in the I/P fuse block to the appropriate turn signal or to all 4 fuses for hazard operation. The instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicators receive voltage from the LT TURN and RT TURN fuses as well as the DDM/PDM for the mirror turn signals. The DDM/PDM has no function or control of the mirror turn signals other that a pass through connection for the circuits. The audio chime is also activated when the turn signals are on. When the hazard switch is pressed, all turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn indicators. The front turn signals are grounded at G100. The rear turn signals are grounded at G401. The Mirror turn signals are grounded by the DDM/PDM.

One of 2 things to have checked, if all your bulbs and connections are correct. 1-stop lamp switch module.
2-multifunction/combination switch (blinker arm/components that are in the steering column). For about a 1/2 hrs. labor cost, a mechanic should be able to test the circuits.

I'm trying to replace the tail lights on my motor home which is built on a for econoline chasis (1988) when I took the old ones off a lot of the wires were pulled out of the assembly or just rusted off. ...


Reconnecting a 7 wire circuit.....I presume you have located the rear JUNCTION BOX, or HARNESS splice.... At the lights wiring.
1. YELLOW = LH Turn signal
2. RED= STOP Lights
3. WHITE= Ground
4. BLACK= LH Tail Light/# plate lamp
5. BLUE [If available] Auxiliary Power Supply
6. GREEN= RH Turn signal
7.BROWN=RH Tail Lights
Depending on style you may find that the LH and RH Tail lamp colours are the same.[ie] Both Brown or both Black.
Best of luck in your endevours.
Regards DT
