Did you check ALL the fuses? There is a fuse box in the engine compartment as well as one behind the kick plate either by the driver side or the passenger side, on some vehicles on both sides inside the car.
If the instrument lights stopped working, there is a good chance that some or all of the park lights are also out, especially if the problem was caused by a faulty trailer plug which affects the park lights, stop lights and indicator lights only.

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy Tahoe Trailer Running Lights Out

Depending on what type of trailer you have, a blown lightbulb on one marker could kill them all (like the old Christmas light strings). Look at those, and make sure your ground is good.

SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

SOURCE: Renault Clio dashboard and side light blow fuse??

I found a solution to my problem on the Internet and it worked a treat

My problem was that the dashboard and both rear lights would not turn on, but the fuses were okay and nothing had been changed

It turns out that in the passenger footwell there are a few relays right in the footwell where a person would put their feet. At first it was suggested that you push your feet really hard against the front of the footwell to see if that helps, and it did, but the lights went out again later. So it was then suggested that you look for a loose relay box where the feet go (on the left hand side at the top of the footwell, nearish to the bonnet release catch). It turns out there are 2or3 relay boxes there. SImply push each one to ensure that it is correctly seated, and voila the lights work perfectly again.

A simple fix that costs nothing, saves a potentially costly visit to a garage, and can be undertaked without any tools are even needing to open the bonnet.

May not solve the problems of those blowing fuses etc, but certainly worked a treat for me

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

SOURCE: LEFT TRAILER TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT WORK

I have seen once before that the fuse box was bad on a 2003 Dodge 3500. I had power in and nothing out. We had to replace the box. Not cheap! Hope it is simple like a loose connection though. I think I had to pull the inner fender on the drivers side to access the bottom of the fuse box. Pain in the ****, but...

Where is the trailer light reset button?


probably doesn't have one
trailer lights are just an extension of the vehicle lights so what ever lights on the trailer are not working will not be working on the vehicle if a fuse is blown
if the vehicle lights all work then it will be a faulty wire connection in a plug
Most trailer light problems can be found in the trailer plug connections or bulb connections in the trailer

I need a fuse diagram for a 2006 Ford F250 2WD. My lights all work great on the PU but when I connect the trailer the lights work but no brake lights or turn signals.


If all the lights work properly with the trailer wiring not connected then the truck itself is fine. If attaching the trailer wiring causes the lights to permanently stop working on the truck then you are blowing a fuse and it will need to be replaced. Your owners manual will show you where the fuse panel is. You should be able to check the wiring plug at the back of the truck to be sure it is working properly with a test light and a helper. If the power for signals/brakes etc are not all working at the plug, then trace back and fix these. If all is good at the truck's plug, then the trailer wiring must be faulty. Again, go through it and fix anything that is broken or corroded. Of course it goes without saying, make sure all the bulbs are good.

Quite often it is in your trailer plug, but you have a damaged wire somewhere, First check your trailer plug, replace fuse if it blows now then unplug the plug under the dash on the drivers side pillar that runs under the carpet, replace fuse if it blows now you will need a professional, if it works you know where to chase it

Check fuse 28 in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. There is also a relay for the trailer park lamps in that same fuse block. The fuse and relay are the trailer parking lamps and run independantly of the vehicles parking lights. You can also try backprobing the other trailer plug (you should have one 7 pin and one 4 pin) to see if there is power at the park light pin. If there is power at the other trailer plug than the fuse and relay are bad and you may have a bad/corroded plug or bad wring to the plug that doesn't work.

90 chevy silverado lights not working


You must have a bare wire at the back of your truck that's shorting out where gravel stones have pounded the outside coating off. If you have an after market trailer plug on there, you might want to check that out too. The connections to your main wires from the trailer plug, are never done properly, and always cause problems somewhere.
