Customer Question
Ford F150 trailer tail...

Ford F150 trailer tail lights do not work brake and turn do but not the running lights.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the connection?

Replaced the lights and plug and the running lights wont work on any trailer I hook to it

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your F150?

2013

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have not done any thing but checked the fuses in the past but not sure on if I got the right ones

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Am not sure about the trailer brake fuse or break problem on my trailer

Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok check fuse 40 inside the vehicle at the body control module, and then check fuse 67 under the hood in battery distribution box. See if one of these is blown.

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 needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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.

BRNew Jersey
