Question Trailer Hitch Electrical Connection

A few months ago, I noticed my LED tailgate brake light wasn't working on one side, so I unplugged it thinking it was the LED bar itself(you see a lot of them working a little funky). A few weeks ago, I hooked up a trailer to my truck & the lights weren't working right, so I had to use my '93 IDI to pull it.

Does anyone have the Ford p/n for this or know of a place you can get them cheap? Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about the truck plug or the trailer plug? Try bending the blades in on the trailer plug. Had that happen to me before.

Have you checked the fuses under the hood? There is a power distribution under there that has trailer specific fuses. This could have been the reason why your LED strip wasn't working on the one side.

If you have an owner's manual, the fuses are listed in there. IF you don't do a google search to see if you can find a fuse list.

I guess it'd be the trailer plug. The one you plug the trailer wire to.
