I have a 2001 winnebago with the ford f450 engine. I have looked everywhere for a wiring diagram associated with the tail lights. I have turn signals and brake lights but no tail lights. A ford mechanic sent me wiring diagrams for every thing but tail lights and that cost me money. I just need a possible answer as to why I have no tail lights. I have no blown fuses. I am not sure if it has an INLINE fuse and if it does where would it be located? The wires in the wiring harness start out differen

Cut out all the melted wiring in the harness and re-spliced the wires. tail lights work, turn signals , but the brake lights do not appear to be working. there are two white and two grey wires which i could not match up because there is no color coding on any of the wires from the harness.

I am experiencing problems with my tail lights and clearance lights on my 1996 Ford F350. Head lights and cab clearance lights work fine. Flatbed box lights and tail lights are not working. I've traced the wiring harness back to near the fire wall however, the plug at the rear of the truck doesn't test for power on that circuit. The lights themselves do work fine. All fuses test ok. Is there any way to find the actual wiring harness diagram or to test each circuit individually?

I have a 98 ford contour and the brake lights dont work. Turn signals, flashers, running lights, and third brake light all work. All fuses are good and cannot determine if any relays are bad. Since the third brakelight still works, I am baffled. FYI- I tracked the wires and found an orange/yellow wire going to third brake light, and Orange/green wire going to rear tail lights. These two wires then run separatley back to the fuse block. Please help! Thanks, Jake

I bought a T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Trailer Connector for my 2011 Hyundai Sonata which tows a 2000 Starcraft Venture 2107 pop up camper. When I make the connections to the camper, the blinker works and then shorts. General RV said the camper wiring is fine and that the foreign cars have smaller wires in the tail light assembly and I am overloading the wires. They said to look for something that allows you to connect to the battery to get more power. Any ideas

I have a 2004 chevy venture. I was towing my boat recently and realized that the wiring for the trailer somehow got frayed and when I moved them around a little there was a small spark. Then I realized that this little spark caused some car issues. First the tail lights don't work, (but the turn signal lights and break lights work fine), the dashboard lights don't work, and the chime when you open the door and leave you key in goes off even if the key is not in there.

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus. The headlights will not turn off, even if the headlight switch is turned off and the car is off. I've even removed the headlight switch and the headlights remain on. The headlights can toggle on/off before I turn the engine on, but after I turn the engine on the headlights remain on until I unhook the battery. The same time this started happening, I also lost power to the tail lights and dash lights. The wiring, fuses and circuits all work as I can get them to light up
