If you haven't checked the switch, do that before you change it. Too many Times non-faulty components get 're-placed. Also if you have trailer lights hookup follow those wires back where they hook into the truck wires. Those wires in and or around that area are good spots to check especially with a test light.

mrm is right - no return on electrical parts. Check for power in and out of the switch.
