I had a set of sail panel leds hooked up and decided to change them and replace them with this . I have everything run through a t-Connector everything works , Blinkers ,Stop , except the running lights. :E:? checked the lights and there fine , seams to be no power at the wire checked the fuse under the hood 15 amp and it was blown replaced it and it still is not working could it be the relay under the hood the the owners manual says park LP (parking lamp relay) I am not good with electrical so please someone help. :help:  and if it is the relay why did it go in the first place?

Are you teed off the rear lights or are you teeing off the Trailer harness  ???
 
I think there are separate fuses for the trailer wiring.
I believe there are even separate ones for the running lights between the left and right sides.

Exactly, I can't believe those lights are pulling enough power to trip a fuse I'd check the wiring for shorts.
 
hooked up a 9v battery to see if they work and no short they work fine .  So your saying it isnt the relay there is another fuse somewhere and if so where is the other fuses ?
 
Left driver side upper fuse panel controls the trailer harness, as you open the driver door it's on the side of the dash(not under the dash)
Which wire are you tapping for the running light, I believe it's the brown one

Isn't that just for the truck and not the trailer harness?? I thought the trailer was seperate? Not sure though
 
In my manual it say trailer in the side fuse block I think the trucks are in the underhood

I'll double check.

The trailer parking lights is in the Underhood box marked trl park, the trailer turns are in the side dash box
Thanks Raceman
 
Shandar are you sure you have them wired right, sounds like it is shorting out.
 
OK I have never encountered something like this before I probed and checked every single fuse in the cab and under the hood and there all fine so I went under the truck again and checked the wires and the plug with a tester and low and behold there is power to the parking light wire again :E: I know I replaced the 15 amp fuse that was blown for the trl park but It still did not work after that now all of the sudden it works what did it have to do relearn or something well in any case it works for now hope I dont have anymore problems with it. Thanks for All your help. ?

Maybe the relay had to reset itself glad you got it fixed
