    Do you mean the switch that turns the brake lights on when you depress the brake pedal??



1 Answer

Yes. All three brake lights are out and it not a fuse problem. It is not a bulb problem.

One side of my back stop light does not work i have ford focus 2001

The brake and turn signal lamps are controlled by what Ford calls a multifunction switch [the blinker control on the column]. If the lamp works on turn signal but not on brake, it definitely is the multifunction switch. If neither work, it still could be the switch or a bad wire.

Problems: Ford focus 2007 model 1. My brake lights stays on while driving without hitting on the breaks, 2. Car wont switch off after removing the key until I let go of the brakes then the car switches...

It sounds like you have a voltage feedback that is providing power to your shift interlock solenoid and your brake lamps are being fed by your daytime running lamp circuits. Check the bulb and make sure that:
1. It is the CORRECT bulb for the vehicle
2. The bulb is installed correctly
3. The bulb SOCKET is not damaged or shorted
4. The replacement bulb is not defective and shorting internally (NEW and GOOD are NOT the same thing)

All brake lights are out : switch, relay,bulbs, fuse checked and good, what else ?

I just had the same problem, I would imagine that the Lamp Failure Sensor is faulty. I replaced the brake light switch under the dash and had no luck, then tested the lamp failure sensor and found out it was bad, bought a new one from the dealer ( dealer only item; just over $300.00) and it worked.

2003 ford focus replaced brake switch lights will work in park but when i engage revs neut drive brake lights stay ?????

I have the same problem with my 03 Focus hatchback! Someone stoppedme yesterday to tell me that they looked like they were always on when i was driving but when i was in "Park" they worked... This particular driver was also driving a focus hatchback and asked me if my Cruise Control was working.. It actually was not and he told me the same thing happened with his focus. He said it was a wire attached to the back brake lights that had broken. I have not yet gotten it fixed. has anyone else had this problem?
