Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
Where can we find the fuse for the trailer lights as we assume the fuses have blown. Mitsubishi Pajero 2012 factory fitted with electric brakes.
They're usually fed off vehicle brake lights or the electric brakes, I haven't seen one yet with a separate fuse except inlines.

SOURCE: Brake Lights are not working.
I had a similar problem after changing a brake light. If your tail lights work and your brake lights dont then it probably is that you installed your light assembly backwards. Take the light assembly out and make sure that when you install it, that all the contacts ( I had 3) line up correctly. It took me about a week of removing and installing the light assembly to catch this. Hope this helps!

You are correct. There is a fuse in the underhood fuse/relay compartment that powers up the pin. It is one of the larger fuses and should be labeled as "AUX". Also check that the power wire is connected to the AUX bolt terminal. They shipped from the factory disconnected and the cable was zip-tied to something below the fuse box.

Testimonial: "I knew there had to be something needed done, I'll check in the morning under the fuse panel for a wire to terminate and see what happens. sounds log"
It is a possible option that the relays for the Stop / Turn are having an issue or the fuse in the Engine Mini panel is blown ( page 142 of the 1997 owners manual )
On the 1997/98 MY this is in the aux relay box in between the Engine Compartment fuse panel and the engine mini fuse panel.
The output of the MFS ( Multifunction switch ) triggers the relays, to use the trailer tow fuse to operate the trailer lamps. The fuse to supply power to the Normally Open contacts on the trailer relays should be hot at all times. You can verify this with the diagram below by metering from pin #3 to pin # 2 [ground for coil] or to another known ground.
These are 1/2 size Ford ISO relays, and can be jumpered to make testing easier ( and with this diagram you can bench test them with a meter to check resistance over the Normally Open contacts, when applying power and ground to the coil ).
I am not 100% sure on the 97/98 MY F-150 about the location of this connector, but the 99-03 have all the wires to the rear of the truck via a connector along the driver's side frame rail, that you can check for ( easiest with the spare lowered )
Start with the Fuse in the Engine Mini panel, to see if the 20A fuse is good and work back towards the trailer tow adapter via the relays. I am going with the obvious blown fuse for the Stop/Turn lamps for the trailer.
