    1986 F250: Headlights, turn signals, hazards and brake lights work after replacing all bulbs (4) 1157 and (2) 1156 and both flash modulators; hazard and blinker. However, no tail lights or back-up lights????? Also performed a visual inspection of the wiring from the tail-lights forward. Not certain if I am dealing with a broken wire, a short, a bad connection, a bad switch, or just ignorance...please advise!!

1986 bronco left taillight


If you are not getting power from the headlight switch for that circuit, but the other side works, you'll have to trace the wiring. The socket has two wires plus a ground. One wire is for the tail lamp circuit and the other is for brake-turn signal.

Hi got brake light but no tail light fuse all good can any one help me please


Check the rear harness wiring harness for corrosion or a broken wire. Should be the brown wire that power up tail lights. Also if you have trailer wiring disconnect it and see if it goes away. Trailer wiring very often cause high resistence due to how they are connected.

Hi i got a n reg ford transit recovery truck someone cut the back light wires now i cant find where they go could you help ?


Use a 12v test light, test the wires on the left side.
One at a time turn on head lights and locate tail light
wire and mark it. do the same thing for the brake light
and turn signals. Now measure out enough wire to go
the left light assy. and across to the right, plus 6". If
you wan't backup lights, turn the key to the on position(don't start engine) block the wheel and put in
reverse, locate wire the same way. After you hook up
the left socket, splice in the brake-backup and tail
lights, to go across to the right. Splice the plate light
in to the tail light 1/2 way across. The right turn signal wire should already be there. Hook up your
sockets, and thats it. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Where can i get the wiring schamatics on ford f250 1986 the brake lights ,tail lights ,siginal don't work


from a haynes or chiltons repair manual,but check under the rear of the box by the bumper for corroded wires from the main whip where each taillight whip connects together.un-tape the wire covering and look at each wire and test for power at each wire.Brown wire is taillight,black is ground,and i think yellow is for brake on 1 side and green for the other side

I need a wiring diagram for a 2001 ford f150 trailer hitch plug in. i got a new heavy duty trailer connector and i need to know the color code of the wires


Hey Bryan

I've got them for Six and Four wire plugs

Six wire plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Not used -
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards
Mike
