Sounds like you lost ground to the trailer. Be sure the ground wire on the truck and trailer are grounded well.

Why don't the headlights work?


Look for blown fuse in the fuse panel. Make sure boat is not connected, replace fuse, see if lights return. If they return, you have a short in your trailer lights or connector (car or trailer).

Third brake light stays on; brakelights very dim; radio, clock, flasher emblem on dash blink when turn signals are used; signals flash fast when brake pedal is applied.


Sounds like you have a short somewhere in the brake circuit. May be between the brakes and the blinkers in the brake lights.

I bet you missed a fuse. Your tail lamps are protected by fuse #9 in the instrument panel fuse block. It is a 20 Amp fuse and is marked "PARK LPS".

You have one of two problems. Either there is a bad ground on your tailer, or the vehicle side trailer connection is bad. The Sport Trac is a 2 wire system and does not require a converter it would only need a 4-flat hardwired in. If you have a 3-2 converter installed good chance that is the problem seeing that the stop and turn wires on the input side would be wired to the same wire, which would explain the turn signals going off when the brake is depressed. If you have a converter installed simply ground the brake lead on the input side of the converter and your problem should be resolved.

Pressing brake causing blinker issue


The trailer harness that was installed probably has a short inside the box that distributes power to the trailer pig-tail. Remove the trailer harness. You problem will be cured.
