Help the newbie please!
Hello everyone. I just joined the Forum and was hoping someone could shed light on a "Left turn signal fault" message that pops up on the dash sometimes after connecting and then actuating the Left turn signal on my newly wired trailer. It started out intermittently but seems to happen almost every time now. It seems like a "relay" problem or burnt out bulb in that the turn signal blinks twice as fast as normal on the dash, and the truck but no visible blinker on the trailer. (the light on the trailer does work and is not burnt out) that is to say when the fault is not occurring... Ground seems fine on the trailer and as i mentioned all the wiring is brand new. Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
The truck is a 2016 F250 Platinum.

You need to determine if it's a trailer fault or a truck fault. Can you try a different trailer on your truck, and a different truck with your trailer?

I'd bet that a RV dealer could help you with this if you tow your trailer over to their lot.
