Question about 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

No 12V at Trailer Tow

I plugged an older tent trailer into my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and my Jeep almost stalled like it was really loaded down electrically. Before I could remove the plug the Jeep recovered and was idling normally. Turns out the guy who owns the trailer had the wiring on the battery backwards. Now I have no 12V at my receptacle! Found the fuse labled Trailer Tow and it was fine. Is there a separate fuse or breaker that supplies the 12V to the rear or did I fry something?

Thanks,

Brad

You might search for a burnt fusible link that feeds that harness...try looking where the battery cable is connected to the starter motor underneath.sometimes you cant tell if a fuse wire is burnt...you gotta tug on it slightly...if it stretches like rubber,the wire inside is burnt/separated and designed to do so there instead of frying the whole harness

My tow vehicle pulls hard to the right while


I don't know what type or brand travel trailer you have but I would have the axle/axles checked to see if they may have shifted on the leaf springs causing the trailer to push to one side or another. Basically have the axle alignment checked on the trailer. Also check the spring shackles and bushings for damage and rot. And check the trailer brakes if equipped for dragging on one side more than the other.

I have a 2004 jeep grand cherokee i installed a 4 way flat plug for a utility trailer. I installed as instructions said but have no brake lights on the trailer, Everything else works. can you help me?


you will need to add an trailer light adaptor for this vehicle. this adaptor will combine the brake and signals from two separate sources. this unit can be purchased at walmart, Canadian Tire, Partsource, autozone. trailer shops. it will fix your issue. or purchase the vehicl specific kit for your Jeep.
