Separating Brake and Turn Signals on 2018 Ford F-150 with Pulse Width Modulation for Compatibility


hello i have a ford f150 normaly we use a curt splitter 56196 because we work in europe we have to split from 2 to 3 wires. but this ford there is a pwm signal on the lights so the splitter 56196 is not working correct. The brake lights are not working as it should be. i mounted als curt converter 56236 now is it working okbut is there a splitter that is combined? greets

You have the pulse width modulation figured out using the Curt Tail Light Converter with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56236 but there is not a combined splitter option with a PWM converter. I personally prefer the Upgraded Modulite Vehicle Wiring Harness Kit with 4 Pole Trailer Connector (Includes Install Kit) # 119147KIT for the converter or the heavier duty # 119190KIT. We see less issues over time with the Tekonsha converters compared to the Curt brand.

You will still need to use the Vehicle to Vehicle Tail Light Converter # C56196 you are already familiar with after that PWM converter to get your separated signals for the European 7 or 13 pin trailer connectors.
