No Trailer Lights

I need someone to help me figure out which fuse to look for under the hood. I had the lights looked at a few months ago and the guy replaced a fuse or two under the hood but now I'm having the same problem again with no turn signals or brake lights on my horse trailer. If anyone can give me some helpful information on fixing this problem I would really appreciate it. My repair guy is backed up for weeks.

That fuse is under the hood. Give me a minute to run out and grab my owners manual and I'll let you know.

Just noticed yours is a 96. On my 99 it's the fuse in position 1. If you're standing facing the drivers side fender, it should be the side of the fuse box closest to you on the bottom right corner. (Hope that makes sense) It should be a 7.5 amp fuse.

Yes, there isn't anything wrong with the plug and the brakes are working well. My trailer guy told me it is almost always a fuse and I'm sure it is just the same thing again. I just don't know "which" fuse!

so is your horse trailer plug a 7 prong or a 3 and you say it work there well get a current light and test each prong to see if it does what it suppose to if it does then your problem lies with the horse trailer

Okay, Fuse 6 and 7 are the right and left hand stop/turn lamps and those fuses are okay. They are 10amp fuses. I'm not sure what else to check. There is Relay 4 which is supposed to be for Trailer Tow Lamps, but I'm not sure how to remove and check that one. Any advice?

if it's like most relays it will click. You should be able to just pull it off and test the terminals it plugs into with a test light. Otherwise just get a new one and see
