I forget what year truck you have, but I havent seen Ford do seperate bulbs for the trucks in a while. I've always seen dual filament bulbs, which is essentially the same thing, you have two wires no matter what ya do.

Nope. One bulb with two filaments to operate as running lights and brake lights

I have the same no tail light issue on both trucks: the 1990 and the 2000, both with the flat 4 plug.

So, the single bulb with dual filaments, will the converter kit I found solve the issue?

Worth a shot. But i'd think those things were designed with the trucks like GM's or Dodges where the turn and brake bulbs are two separate bulbs....not dual filament bulbs.

I really dont get what this conversion kit really does, I mean when you have a dual filament bulb, you still have two wires to it. The same two signals your sending to the trailer.

the flat 4 has four wires, right? the conversion kit has five wires that go into this module that has the four connectors coming out of it.

Right. Ground, left turn, right turn, parking/brake. The ground wire is the one that's reversed from the others (has the female end on the trailer side)...so you can't accidentally plug the connector in backwards.

That converter won't have any effect for you I'm pretty certain.

OK, so it's back to looking for poor connections.......

Time to crawl back under the truck, updates to come later.
