ford 150 tail lights Sign In

I was wireing a boat trailer crossed a wire and blew my tail lights on my ford 150. I have inspected all fuses and none are burnt. Are there any hidden fuses for the tail lights on this truck? The turn signals work and the brake lights, but no tail lights, and I cant figure this one out!! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You didn’t tell us what year this F150 is and that might help to answer whether there are any other circuit protection devices.
When you say the taillights are out is it just the taillights or are the front, side marker and dash lights out as well?
If all the lights are out and you have checked that the taillight fuse actually has power going through it, with a test light or voltmeter then you may have burnt out the switch.
If the other lights do work then you’ll at least know the switch is ok and you can then start at the back of the truck and chase the brown taillight wire up to the front. Disconnecting and or probing that brown wire until you find out where you’ve lost your power. If this truck is a few years old there maybe a corroded connector that has burnt open when the wires became crossed.
Have fun and let us know what you find.
