okay

If you disconnect the brake switch are the brake lights still on?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the only way they go off is if I pull the fuse out.

What fuse number was it?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
6 on the inside fuse box

Does your truck have a brake controller or trailer plugs?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it has a towing package

T​ry disconnecting the trailer plugs, there should be a connector under the rear bumper it could be back feeding the brake lights, another possibility is the trailer brake controller may be sending a brake light signal, try disconnecting the trailer brake controller.

pull the fuses for all the trailer, connections, no change still on.

Do you have a brake controller mounted in the dash?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
stock from the factory

Can you remove and unplug it and see if the brake lights go out?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
okay that did not work
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I guess I should just take it into the shop.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
That did not work, guess I should just take it into the shop.

O​k that probably would be best, ***** ***** wiring is the hardest to find, ever harder over the internet.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.
