The trailer is a 4 pin?

I am guessing you don't have a Ford hitch/wiring? Mine has a 4pin along with a 7 pin.

Loose/bad grounds tend to cause some oddball malfunctions like that. What have you checked so far.

Do you have an owner's manual? There are trailer fuses under the hood.

Do you have a way to check voltages? If so, can you check the voltages at the 7-pin plug?

I have two different cofiguration 7-6 pin adapters. From what I understand they wired 6 pin trailers a couple different ways. I thought it only affected the trailer brakes and a constant 12v lead though.
