I found that I had to replace a fuse that is very hard to locate on the interior of the passenger side dash, way under neath and a real b#%$@# to find and get to. No mention in the owners manual that I could find.
Hope you find it. My excursion is still going strong after 200,000. miles with a v10 engine. Good luck

I have a standard 4 flat trailer plug on my truck but my trailer plug is also a 4 flat plug but has two brown wires going to one prong. how do i hook them together to make all my lights on trailer work

The 4-wire flat plugs usually have a white (ground), green (right brake/turn) yellow (left brake/turn) and brown (taillights - left and right). If your brake and turn lights work but the taillights don't, check the plugs (trailer and truck sides) for corrosion, and chek both the trailer and truck wiring harnesses for chafed insulation and bare conductors on the brown wires. Likewiae if the taillights work and the brake/turn lights don't, perform the same checks on those wires. And last but not least, be sure that the white wires (truck and trailer) are grounded well to the truck body and trailer frame.

Need a wiring diagram for the trailer lights on a 2006 F150. I have power at the relay and fuse for the trailer park lights but nothing at the bumper plug

Are you certain you dont have power at the plug? If you have a test light verify first what power you do and do not have at the plug. A "trailer emulator" is a reasonably priced tool available from Tekonsha through most auto parts stores and can save you a lot of time but a test light will work with a little more patience. Looking at the plug with the lid open, the top two blades are tail lights and 12v charge, the left and right blades are left and right turn, the bottom two blades are trailer brake and ground. center is reverse. Let me know when you test power and we can move forward. Be SURE your ground is good while using your test light. BARE METAL is required

Right trailer turn signal does not work when hooked up to my 2003 gmc sierra. The light does work on the truck. Trailer light does work when hooked up with my other vehicles.

Check the plug at your gmc outlet, your right signal wire has been damaged before the plug somewhere. If you have a test light switch your right signal on and make sure it is working at the plug on your gmc, you will find it is not working, than trace the wire back from the plug till you find where it has been damaged or you can run a wire straight from plug to your right signal.

My trailer parking lights do not work when I plug into my trailer.I have brake and stop lights,But no marker lights.All the lights on the truck work fine.

There could be a few things contributing to this. One is if the pins and sockets on the connection are in the right place (not pushed in somehow, if it's rusty, if it needs more pins). More than likely you won't have to follow the wires to see if there is one exposed since all markers don't work, but i would start with the connections first, try to clean then up and make sure they are in the right place. The other factor would be that the wiring harness may just be bad for the wires on the markers. I hope this helps you out and if it doesn't i will happily look more into it.

I have a 2000 Ford Excursion. I went to hook up a

If these lights still work on your excursion then it is probably not a fuse problem. It sounds like it is a loose pin(s) with the trailer plug or a loose electrical connection(s) on the trailer or maybe the bulbs on the trailer are burned out. This should help, if not then contact me again at FixYa and I will be glad to help.

When I hook up my horse trailer to my 2003 Ford Excursion, it blows the fuse for the running lights. The blinkers and brake lights work, but that is all. If I change the blown fuse, it will only blow...

fix the plug,car or trailer, and check the wiring and bulb sockets in the trailer
bigger fuses are equal to burnt wiring harness or fires in either vehicle
