Test power to fuse. Test wire to see if there is any voltage. If not, follow wiring and see if there is a relay that can be replaced.

Check to see if power is going to the plug, could just be either the plug or the plug adapter that is faulty.

What does tbc fault mean on a 2006 f350


TBC means Trailer Brake Controller fault.Check for moisture/water in the trailer plug connector at the back of your truck. Water/moisture will cause TBC error codes. Look for moisture at all connections to the plug and inside the plug.Trailer brake controller that is built into your dash. If you are hooked up to a trailer it could mean you are losing your connection or ground to the trailer. If you are not connected to a trailer it means there is a problem with your brake controller possibly a short in the wiring caising the fault code. ----- It means either A) you have a bad ground on your trailer. Or B) your cable on your trailer is too short and causing it to pull out of the plug or C) you have a short in the factory trailer harness wiring or the plug is gunked up. --------- get this possibilities checked.It will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have an Intergrated brake controller, i warning comes up trailer disonnected and sometimes TBC fault, no trailer hooked up , happens when i hit a bump, or hit the dashs. Please


TBC is trailer brake control. If it says there is a fault then i would say you have one of two issues. Either the controller is faulty or you have wires grounding out to the brake control wire going to the rear of the truck for your plug.

Tbc fault trailer disconnected message 05 f350


check the rear plug on the bumper they are prone to water damage and corrosion, if you unplug the 7-way and four way plug from the body connector and test drive the vehicle this will tell you if the plug is the source of the problem.

Trailer brake controller problem


I found the problem. Talking with a technician from the controller company, we determined that it was a fuse problem. I found that the fuse to the CHMSL was blown.
