Customer Question
I have a 2007...

I have a 2007 F150. The license plate light and tailgate light bar quit working.Is there a fuse for that? I know the light bar (or strip) plugs in to a 4 flat plug.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Ford. The Ford Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

My tail lights,brake lights and turn signals all work but no license plate light

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Replaced fuses 1 and 18.I didn't get an owners manual so can't look it up

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Ford Mechanic should be aware of about your Ford?

I don't think so

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

The light bar is not OEM, and you mentioned it plugs into the trailer connector. Can you check the 4 pin connector to verify the ground and park lamp power are good there? The license plate lights are wired into the rear parking lights. Can you unplug one of those bulbs and see what its missing, power or ground, so we can find this wire issue?

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed before or after rating.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
