Check the fuse panel under the hood, your truck should have a seperate fuse for the trailer lights and the truck lights.

2004 Chevy Express 1500 keeps blowing trailer light fuse


If you're only blowing the fuse while the trailer is plugged in, the problem is in the trailer/wiring. This takes into account that the truck has a factory installed 7 way receptacle. If that's not the case, the problem can be in the incorrectly wired truck and the trailer is ok.

On the truck, looking into the 7 way receptacle should be as follows.
Top left=Tail Lights
Top right=12v steady source/charge line
Left middle=Left turn/brake
Right middle=Right turn/brake
Left bottom=ground
Right bottom=brake controller output
Center=reverse lights if your trailer is equipped.

Your trailer plug should mirror this.

This is the standard.

Tail light wiring connectors and wiring diagram


A test light checking each connector would be faster and easier to do. Maybe somebody may have a illustration for you but by far a simple test light is all you need with a helper turning on the different lights as you check them out and writing all your findings down

I have a 2008 Ford F 150 with factory installed trailer wiring. I bought a trailer plug tester. It shows the tail light function to be dead. Brake lights, turn signals all work. Any ideas?


The trailer tow adapter parking lamps is fuse #10 in the cab fuse panel. There is also a trailer tow parking lamp relay that powers them, which could have a problem as well.
Start with the fuse, and maybe check both the 7 pin and the 4 pin for the parking lamps, could be a corroded pin on one of them causing the tester to not see the power on the pin.

My driver side tail light and driver side licsense plate light dont work all fuses look good wiring looks fine when i hook a trailer up the trailer lights all work this is on a 2002 chevy silvarado heavy...


if you check the wires with a test light at the tail light assembly plug in ,i think you'll find you do have power but the electrical circuit that holds the bulbs, is defective

the plate light you need to check the socket for power with test light
