You have a bad ground. or it has been wired wrong. id try looking at the trailer first to make sure the wires are not grounding out against the frame. then id go under the hood to make sure every thing is good there it may be as simple as adding a bigger fuse.

SOURCE: Fuse for trailer right turn signal and brake blows intermittently

abad ground on that tail light unit could affect current load when turn and stop are used simultaneously. Although one side only is affected make sure of good grnd between trailer and tow vehicle. focust on the tail light unit in question. Replace the bulb. though rare, bulbs have been known to be the problem. If the bulb is breaking filiments ck the filiment orientation. filiments last longer in vertical orientation, where horizontal permits vibration to break the heated filiment when brake is applied.. good luck and let me know if This helped or not.

My park lights keep blowing fuses


You have a short to ground in the park light circuit..best have a mechanic look at it because its possible the trailer wiring was faulty and shorted out the Smart Junction Box (SJB)...the park lamp relay is controlled by it and the relay is built into the SJB

No turn or stop lights on trailor hook up 2007 e350 ford box truck former penske


I have found trailer light fuses in the fuse pnl under the hood in some vehicles. I am wondering if you may have another issue though. Very first thing I would verify is good ground on both the truck and trailer wiring. It seems odd that all the light fuses are blown. The next thing I'd look into would be the trailer lights to verify that the circuit boards are in good shape etc... (Assuming they are LED) you may have a compatibility issue between the truck and trailer. If the truck was set up for an LED lighting trailer but your trailer has conventional lights, the resistance will be drastically different and can cause all sorts of trouble. Just a thought if your fuses turn out to be ok or continually blow. Good luck!

Check the plug wiring again on the truck. You have a wire crossed , when you hit the lights and it only blows with the trailer, then there is a crossed wire on the truck. What seems to be happening is your sending power to the ground for the trailer. You can check the trailers ground with an ohm meter, then make sure your truck ground matches that pin. You may know this , but green rght turn, yellow is left turn, brown is parking lights, black is brake lights, and white is ground.

The trailer lights on your van should be fused independently of the vehicle lights if you have the factory wiring. There is a fuse junction block under the hood [should be in the left corner somewhere] and in that you should find the fuses for the trailer lights and other functions. This is from memory but check fuses #5 and #6, [10 amps fuses] and see if they are blown. I could be wrong on the numbers so you might have to check them all. Usually its the trailer that causes these fuses to blow so if you find a blown fuse replace it and make sure it doesn't blow again by testing all the lights with the trailer unhooked. If that's ok then hook up the trailer and check again. If it blows with the trailer hooked up then you probably have a short circuit in the trailer wiring somewhere. Good luck, hope this helps!

2006 Ford F250 Super Duty no running light for trailer and keep blowing a fuse


have seen this a few times on fords. I'm assuming it only blows when you use the trailer. then the only cause can be a shorted wire somewhere between the trailer connector to the lights at the rear of the trailer or maybe the light assembly is bad. If the problem happens when you have no trailer hooked up then inspect the trunk harness. and wiring under the bumpers. Something 12v got pinched.
