Behind the bumper will be a set of wires for the trai;ler. Is there one? Drivers side?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

yes it has a round plug mounted on the driver side rear bumper

 

Expert:  JHoop replied 5 years ago.
OK. I suspect because both lights are out you need to check to see if 12v is coming out of the multi-switch to the parking lamps when the switch is on. It is the only brown wire at the multi-switch. If it has 12v repair the open to the rear of the truck.

what/where is the multi_switch and what do you mean repair the open to the rear of the truck. what open

 

Expert:  JHoop replied 5 years ago.
The multi-switch is the turn signal switch. Again if there is 12v from the brown wire you have an open WIRE to the rear. If no 12v with the lights on you have a bad multi-switch.

how do i access that

 

Expert:  JHoop replied 5 years ago.
Remove the covers for the column. The Steering wheel must come off first. A few screws on the bottom cover and you get to the switch.
