Tail Light/Back Up Light Fuse Location

Gentleman,

This past weekend I decided to upgrade the firmware on my SCT and retune the truck, in addition to this I changed the serpentine belt and removed both batteries to recondition them before the winter. After getting everything back together the truck runs so far so good except my rear tail lights and back up lights do not work. I have brake/turn signals but no tail lights/back up lights; can anybody tell me exactly what fuse may be out location/number? I looked at the manual but couldn't find any designation stating "tail lights", could something else be wrong here other than a fuse?

Thanks for the help

Regards,
Tar

So I checked the fuses and they all seem to be fine. What is the best method to test a relay? If the relay is bad where could I get one? If the relay isn't bad, what else may be going on here? Like I said I have brake/turn signals but no tail lights or reverse lights.

Thanks

Sorry, I misread for tail lights. Parking, Rear and License Plate Lamps:
BJB fuse 54 (5A) (mirror lamps)
SMJ (Smart Junction Box) fuse 22 (15A) (Parking lamps)

To test a relay, just swap it with other known working one.

Just a thought I had the same problem on my 2007 F150 and I kept thinking it was a fuse or wiring. Turned out it was the stop lamp switch on the brake pedal.

I figured it out when I realized I could not disengage my cruise control and started connecting the dots. I'm not sure if the set up is the sae on the Super Duty or not.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the suggestion, but I do have brake lights, and turn signals. Does the stop lamp control rear tail lights and back up lights? These are the two characteristics that I don't have.

Thanks

I am sorry, I did read that you had brake lights, I don't know what I was thinking. Maybe someone else will have an idea
