Trailer lights

Hi guys. This is my first post! Recently purchased a 2005 F350 6 litre Power stroke diesel. My trailer signal/stop lamps work. My trailer head lamps don't. They were working for a bit and now there not. Any suggestions? Thanx

I'm guessing you mean tail or running lights?

Check your owners manual to see if there is separate fuse in the Power Distribution box under the hood for trailer running lights.

Yah, cant seem to see where the trailer running lights fuse would be in the fuse box. I find the fuse diagram not labeling the items very clearly.

do you have a test light or multimeter ?
or are you sure the problem is on the truck side of the connections

do you have an owners manual with fuse locations ?
if not use this no need for the log in just fill in the truck specs

Using the manual from the link above (2005 F350), Passenger Compartment Fuse Panel. Page 219, Fuse 38 20A* - Trailer Tow Park Lamps. * - Indicates a mini fuse.
Page 218 shows the fuse box layout.
