The lights don't come on with parking or headlights on, but brakes, emergency flashers and turn signals all work. They were "plug-n-play." Connections are all tight and dielectric grease put in every connection and no worky. Checked fuses on truck and they seem good. Can't verify relay.

I did notice one pinched wire in clip against the trailer, but I freed it and still not working.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

check the trailer connection for broken wires/bad connections, something is not completing a circuit.

okay, reread the thread, you put in new lights to replace the old ones?

Yes. Replaced all the old bulb style lights with LEDs. The lights were standard size bought from Academy. All the harnesses fit perfectly with new lights. At first, the passenger side markers were working, but then stopped. After researching, I think I am dealing with a ground issue.

Mine did it that before I went to LED lights and it ended up being a fuse

Check each pin on the trucks plug for correct voltage. That might save you from a lot of tail chasin'.

Check to see if you have voltage coming out of the pigtail from the truck. If not blown blown fuse, if yes broken light wire. I you have power to the brake lights, you do not have a grounf problem.

BINGO BOBBY! We checked all the fuses. The one for Trailer TOW Parking Lamps looked ok, but really hard to see. We switched it with another 20A fuse and the trailer lit up like a Christmas tree. $5 fuse- problem solved!
