Cars don't have fuses for the trailer lights.. The trailer wiring is tied into the cars wiring and uses the original tail-brake-indicator fuses.

Look under the dashboard, next to/above the park brake pedal, for the interior fuse box. It has a black plastic cover. Remove the TAIL fuse, and see if it is blown. This should get you fixed up. Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: Tail Lights Don't Work

I would take out the tail light fuse and repace with a known good fuse. Use a test light to see if you are getting power at each side of the fuse at the little metal tabs on the top of the fuse.

If you have power at each location, then something happned at the connection. You may need an owners manual with a wiring diagram.

SOURCE: plugged in a trailer and now brake lights and horn don't work

There definitely should be a fuse for your brake lights. It should be inside the car fuse box, but sometimes it'll be under the hood (very rare). There's also a switch above the brake pedal that turns your brake lights on. This switch may be faulty

Where is the trailer light fuse


The answer to this question depends on several factors such as: Whether the towbar was a factory fitted unit fitted during
pre-delivery, a genuine brand unit or an aftermarket unit & who, where & when it was fitted...
The majority of towbars & the assosiated wiring out there are simply wired in to the rear tail light circuits such as:
  • Trailer stop lights wired to vehicle stop light circuit in eighther of the rear tail lights.
  • Trailer park lights wired to vehicle park light circuit same side as the stop lights, as above.
  • Trailer number plate lights wired to vehicle park light circuit same side, as above.
  • Trailer reverse lights (if fitted) wired to vehicle reverse light circuit same side, as above.
  • Trailer left hand indicator wired to vehicle left hand indicator light circuit
  • Trailer right hand indicator wired to vehicle right hand indicator light circuit.
This means that if fitted in this manner (as the majority are) the corrosponding vehicle light fuse will affect the trailer lights unless the is an inline fuse fitted to each single circuit (which cld be blown). This is very uncommon & wld be a costly way to do it...

In some more modern cars that came from the factory (not the dealership ie. pre-delivery) with the tow bar fitted as standard equipment it is possible that there cld be a sepparate little fuse box or section in the main fuse box (the position of the fuse box/es shld be in your owners manual usually Under the bonnet, under the dash or behind font foot kick panels, & if you dont have an owners manual for your vehicle they are usually available to buy an aftermarket version or these days on the internet & often downloadable for free or @ a small charge).

All the best & I hope this is of some help...

Need fuse list for 2001 ford f350 trailer lights not working


In the fuse box under the hood, fuse in position 20 is a 7.5amp fuse for the trailer left turn circuit, fuse in position 22 is a 7.5 amp fuse for the right turn circuit, if the fuses are good and you have power at them it is going to be wiring, at the back of the truck close to the driver side at the bumper is a gray connector that will take factory wiring to you trailer wiring the yellow wire is left turn/brake light, the green wire is right turn/brake light, and the brown is tail lights, and the orange wire is 12volt feed for if there is a battery on the trailer that needs to be kept charged for break away safty brakes.

Left tail light out on 02 S10


I had this same symptom after I pulled a trailer that had light "issues". I tried wiggling the trailer light connector around until the trailer lights begin working. Next think I know they were not working again and now my left tail light was out. I thought it odd that is wasn't both lights out being on the same fuse, but checked wiring etc with no problems found. Mine turned out to be the "left tail light fuse" in the engine compartment fuse box. All of the parking and tail lights as independently fuse, You can tell which one it is by the guide on the fuse box lid. You will be looking for a 10 amp (red) fuse near the center of the fuse box.
