I have a 2001 GMC 2500HD. It has a Hayes trailer brake controller installed in it. Even with nothing plugged into the trailer wiring socket, the parking light come on when I activate the brake controller....


It sounds as though you have either a frayed wire between the brake control circuit and tail/running light circuit of the truck side of the plug, or someone wired the truck side of the plug incorrectly.

Think about it. The parking brake lights come on when the controller is activated. More than likely the tail lights are also.

The tail lights are also going to come on when the headlights are on. This would cause the trailer brakes to be activated IF there is a short in the TRUCK side of the plug itself.

That's where I would personally start investigating, The truck side of the trailer plug.

Hope this helps.

I hooked up a trailer to my 04 dodge 2500 (5.7 ltr) and when i plugged in the lights my truck lost all running lights and tail lights. headlights still work and so do turn signals. I checked all the...


your vehicle has a "integrated power module". its a fancy name for a smart fuse box. What likely happened is there is a problem with the trailer wiring. The power module detected the fault and shut down the running lights. The power module will need to be reset at the dealer.

Fuse 15 is a 50 amp fuse for the park lamp relay
Fuse 32 and 34 are 10 amp fuses for the right and left park lights
Fuse 33 is a 10 amp fuse for the trailer park lights.

After it is reset I would not plug in the trailer until the fault is located and repaired.

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 2001 toyota tacoma prerunner is burning the 10a tail light fuse immediately after i put it in


Then you have a short circuit to ground in this tail lamp wiring which you need to find to stop the fuse burning out. Finding a shorted circuit may not be easy but you can try this, check your trailer electrical connection (if you have one) as these do cause this kind of issue. Faulty wiring to this connector, damage or lost screws can all result in this issue. You may need to follow the rear wiring harness from the cab back to locate anywhere that the wiring has been crushed or rubbed through insulation has occoured and the copper conductor is now touching the body or a ground wire. Check the trailer connector, rear wiring behind the lamp assemblies and the harness where it runs in the chassis. If you have recently has any work done under the vehicle, check this area too..

2003 Sienna tail lights don't work when headlights are on


Look under the dashboard, next to/above the park brake pedal, for the interior fuse box. It has a black plastic cover. Remove the TAIL fuse, and see if it is blown. This should get you fixed up. Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.

2007 Tacoma Tail light problem.


Check the taillamp fuse on the truck. If it is blown, you either have a short in the wiring of the camper, or the 7 pin inverter box on the camper.
