It sounds like the electric brake (Blue Wire) from your truck is in the wrong location in the socket from your truck

or

check the connection to the brake pedal it has a wire that goes to it(Usually) white or red it may be connected to the wrong side of the switch

one side has power at all times the other only when you hit the brake most likely this is the problem. the wire needs current only when the truck brakes are depressed.................Good Luck

No power to trailer turn signals and brake lights. everything else works.


make sure to check the wiring on the trailer and to make sure that there is no damage or loose wireson the hook ups themselves. the wres could have come loose on your truck where they hook into the hook up for the trailer wiring. if any wire has come loose or the ground wire for the lights have come off, they will not work.

What does tbc fault mean on a 2006 f350


TBC means Trailer Brake Controller fault.Check for moisture/water in the trailer plug connector at the back of your truck. Water/moisture will cause TBC error codes. Look for moisture at all connections to the plug and inside the plug.Trailer brake controller that is built into your dash. If you are hooked up to a trailer it could mean you are losing your connection or ground to the trailer. If you are not connected to a trailer it means there is a problem with your brake controller possibly a short in the wiring caising the fault code. ----- It means either A) you have a bad ground on your trailer. Or B) your cable on your trailer is too short and causing it to pull out of the plug or C) you have a short in the factory trailer harness wiring or the plug is gunked up. --------- get this possibilities checked.It will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Trailer brakes lock up tires on my dump trailer. when i hook up to my RV no problem


Check your electric brake setting, you need to adjust down the sensitivity setting, check the voltage at the lead where you connect the trailer plug with brakes applied then check the same plug on your RV and compare the two... Check grounds in the circuit...
