Standing by

Okay did you check all three pins and if so which one had no power?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The one that feeds the running lights

Okay that would be pin #3 which is the brown/white wire from the trail tow trailer lamp relay and it gets its power from the fuse F10 (20AMP) located in the interior fuse panel, can you check and see if you have power in and out of it with the tail lights on?

The F-10 20A fuse was blown

That is what I suspected, that should get you going and thank you as well. Please take a moment to rate my service at the top right hand side of the page so I can get credit for my time, the question remains open for follow up even after doing so, all you need to do is return to this question if need be.

Thank you again.

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.
