Default Have trailer harness, but no lights when plugged in.

I have the harness at the rear bumper for trailer lights, but the other day I went to take my boat out and try the lights for the first time since buying the ranger and I found they do not work lol.


Did they come without a fuse possibly/no fuse plugged in?

Or maybe some sort of obvious answer I have yet to think of?


Thanks guys.

Yea checked all the fuses remotely close to lights in both boxes, the wires look fine from the front to the rear and nothing is corroded/unplugged, kinda confused....

Check the prongs on the connectors themselves, wire brush them if they seem corroded or have a white/blue tint coloring on them. It happened to me and the wire brush worked.

Not that this will help the current problem but get some dielectric grease for the plug and a cover. That will help with the corrosion on the prongs.
