Turn signals and brake lights not working

We have a 2019 Thor Freedom Traveler that the turn signal lights and brake lights stopped working suddenly. We looked at the different fuse boxes in the dash above the instrument panel on driver side and in the engine. Couldnít find any blown fuses but not sure of what we were looking for. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as we are planning a huge trip in 7 weeks and hate to bring to dealer for repair as we donít know when we would get it back. Thank you!

Turn signals and brake lights not working

There will be a fuse in the Ford panel up front somewhere (donít have your model) and the chassis owners manual should tell you which one(s) to check. Are the front turn signals working? If all four corners stopped working at the same time itís likely a fuse - though youíll want to know why the fuse blew. Or possibly a connector at the base of the steering column that has come apart though this is darned unlikely. If itís only the rear check that the bulb/sockets are not corroded or a connector at the rear has come apart. If the fuse is the problem check for water in a taillight that could have caused a short.

Ford F53 Mult-Function Unit Connector

I had the same problem after camping last week. My brake lights, turn signals, and flasher did not work. Fuses seemed fine. My online research pointed to a multi-function control unit in most Ford trucks, including the F53. The unit is on the steering column and the turn signal lever is attached to it. I thought I might have to replace it, but after I removed the plastic covers on the steering column I saw that the connector was loose. I shoved it back in and everything worked. However, further inspection of the connector found the bottom connecting tab was broken. So, I ordered a new connector, butt-spliced the 9 wires, and everything is working again with a securely attached connector.
