There are two 7.5A fuses in-line located under the left 3rd row seat.
The exact location is behind the seat, below the floor between the seat and the storage compartment. Easier access if you remove the compartment lid.

The running lights terminal on my trailer plug in do not work. Turn signals and brake lights work fine. Have continuity to the last splice. Do not know how to find the exact fuse.


first, disconnect from the car and check for total continuity from the front to the back of the trailer with some extra wire, if it is good, then you can get a fuse tester from autozone or such and check the fuses in the panel until you find the dead one, they run about $15 usd.

My trailer brakes do not work when the ball and trailer make a connection. But if I just plug in the trailer to the truck I can hear them working. I have checked everything and have had others look at...


Both the ball and the trailer hitch should be grounds so I'm guessing the trailer brakes have a hot wire touching the frame somewhere but not enough to blow a fuse. Before connecting the hitch to the ball, have someone press the trailer brakes and check between the hitch and the ball with a volt meter for 12 volts. If you do then something is wrong with the trailer brakes. I'm just guessing though.

No power to rear plug for lights on a trailer fuses look good


Do you mean nothing works or just the power lead? If nothing works I would check the ground. If just the power lead doesn't work on the I know on the older superdutys the large fuses had to be installed in the fuse box under the hood to make it work. They were usually in the bag with the trailer brake controller wiring and had directions on where they went. Hope it helps

I have a 1997 Ford F150 4x4 Supercab Stepside with 5.4L and factory towing package. On the factory trailer wiring plug I am not getting power for turn signals or brake lights. Running lights and brake...


It is a possible option that the relays for the Stop / Turn are having an issue or the fuse in the Engine Mini panel is blown ( page 142 of the 1997 owners manual )

On the 1997/98 MY this is in the aux relay box in between the Engine Compartment fuse panel and the engine mini fuse panel.

The output of the MFS ( Multifunction switch ) triggers the relays, to use the trailer tow fuse to operate the trailer lamps. The fuse to supply power to the Normally Open contacts on the trailer relays should be hot at all times. You can verify this with the diagram below by metering from pin #3 to pin # 2 [ground for coil] or to another known ground.

These are 1/2 size Ford ISO relays, and can be jumpered to make testing easier ( and with this diagram you can bench test them with a meter to check resistance over the Normally Open contacts, when applying power and ground to the coil ).

I am not 100% sure on the 97/98 MY F-150 about the location of this connector, but the 99-03 have all the wires to the rear of the truck via a connector along the driver's side frame rail, that you can check for ( easiest with the spare lowered )

Start with the Fuse in the Engine Mini panel, to see if the 20A fuse is good and work back towards the trailer tow adapter via the relays. I am going with the obvious blown fuse for the Stop/Turn lamps for the trailer.

Don't know if it changed later...
