Error on Ford Truck With Skull LED Hitch Cover


Where do I wire the hitch cover to stop getting the error. If I tap into the harness wouldn’t I still get the error ?


Expert Reply:

I assume you have a Ford truck, as we see this issue on 2015 and up Fords when using LED hitch covers like the Skull with L.E.D. Eyes Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-018.

These covers wreak havoc with Ford trucks so the only solution is to hardwire in a separate 4-way, the Hopkins Endurance 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector Socket # HM48030.

You would still get the error if you tapped into your current harness, so you would need to hardwire the connector to a powered circuit different than the powered circuit used to power the trailer lights.
