Check fuses F2.7 and F2.3 in your central junction box. If fuses are blown, then there is a short to ground on the trailer itself. If fuses are good. I would Check the wiring to the trailer and check each circuit with a test light at the trailer connector on the vehicle side.

Check owners manual for fuses first. Usually there are different trailer fuses from vehicle fuses. Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have a great website with lots of info.

Brake controller or trailer brakes connections or brake light to run system


The brake switch at the pedal does have six wires, but none go to the multifunction switch (on the steering column). The white wire with tan tracer goes to the combination flasher to be integrated with the turn signals/hazard lights. The combination flasher is under the dash next to the steering column and has a sixteen pin connector (ten of which have wires).

Reverse lights come on when brake pedal pressed


it could be a ground problems .. if ground at brake lights is not good then it could take it through back up lights
check all ground to rear end like parking lights,brake lights, back up lights and flasher
if you have a trailer harness check connections for trailer could be a big problem
hope it helps

Replaced brake light switch, checked fuse,changed relay,center light works, turn signal,run light work,and flashers workes,but no brake light on rear of truck or trailer.couldit be in turn signal switch?


Look closely at trailer wiring, I highly suspect where it connects to your truck is the issue. Not the plug, but the trucks wiring from lights to trailer plug. I'll bet ground is loose or off.

I tow an enclosed trailer with my 2002 freelander and the brake lights don't work on the trailer. I have the proper connector which works fine for the turn signals, the hazard flashers and the overall...


If the Brake light filaments in the globes are OK then you could have a bad connection some where in the brake light circuit from where the trailer connector cable is tapped into the vehicle wiring loom.
Start by disconnecting the trailer connector and checking on the vehicle socket for an indication that voltage is present by using a multimeter or test lamp while the brake pedal is pressed. If not OK, then the fault is either where the brake light wire is screwed into the socket or the connection in the vehicle wiring loom.
If OK then reconnect trailer plug and after removing cover, check the trailer plug where the brake light wire is screwed into it. If OK, then check where wire is connected at trailer lamps. If not OK, then there is a broken wire in the trailer cable.

If you have power to the trailer plug. Then check and if you have power to your bulbs. Remember to check your third brake light bulb also.
