2017 blinker not working.

We had some work done that involved the tail corner and now my blinker doesnt work? The truck blinker is fine and the left trailer blinker is working just not the right. What do a try first? Id take it back to the repair guy but hes 4+ hes away.
Thanks for your help.

Id suspect the ground wire or other wire on that light is a good place to start. Not sure a fuse would be the culprit. My electrical expertise pretty much runs out there. Sorry! Hope you find it!

If you don't have the blinker you also don't have the brake light on that side.
If work was done in that area remove the bulb and test it. If bulb is good remove the light socket and test for voltage on the wire. No voltage on the wire test for voltage on the pins at 3 and 9 oclock while the 4 ways are flashing. Both should have voltage. If one does not the problem is in the truck and check the fuses. If you have voltage on both the problem is in the trailer and if the bulb checked out OK that problem is in the wiring.

On some tow vehicles, the the right and left trailer blinkers have separate fuses. Check your tow vehicle fuses. I recently had this exact problem. It was a blown fuse in my 2011 Silverado.

Yeah, it was my day to be a jerk. Sorry about that. I think between HowiE and Moosetags replys you'll have the answer. I agree with HowiE's troubleshooting order and procedures. - Brad

Brake lights and turn signals work off of same circuit as the hazard lights(flashers) Turn on flashers and check for power in bulb socket, try reseating the bulb, try a new bulb.

i'm seeing several issues in the forum regarding the blinker/brake lite issues. same here, I see you have a chevy 2500, so maybe you an help with fuse location..i have no left blinker/brake lite. started with:replaced the 7 pin on the AS (2012 Intl. 25'), tested the brn wire on TV for rt. blinker, got 13 v , tested the red for left, no voltage. right now I think its a fuse issue on the TV (2015 Chevy Silverado 2500). however, I cannot locate the fuse. the diagram in the owners manual is confusing, the actual diagram off the front dash fuse panel is ???? I just cannot read it shows more fuses than I have with no reasoning on position. chevy CS is no help. any suggestions on how to ID the fuse for left blinker/brake.?? position #14 is the location, however I can't relate the fuse panel drawing to see where #14 is. any help is appreciated. if its the lamps (LED's) again i'm not sure how to access, ( whole assembly that's screwed in has to be taken out or just pop the lamp assembly out????)

There should be 2 fuse panels in your truck. One under the hood that is mostly the heavier electrical items.You will see notations fo thing that may not have a fuse inserted on your truck. That just means you don't have that option, (snow plow ect)


To the left of the steering column the lower panel should be removable and a fuse panel there. The cover should locate ever fuse and give the original amperage rating. Position the cover panel so it looks like the fuse layout. The panel should have numbers as to what fuse is in a given slot.


If you find a blown fuse for the TV left blinker replace it and test th TV as a stand alone. If when you attach the trailer and the fuse blows again I suspect you have a short in the plug on the umbilical cord. This more likely in a made up cord than a factory molded one but possible in both. The spacing in there is very tight and the ground wire is right next to the left turn signal wire.
