Question about 2000 Ford Explorer
FORD GALAXY 2.3 ZETEC,AUTO,2000 X REG
My near-side rear brake-light was not working and under breaking the off-side front side-light would come on.
With my headlights on the two working brake-lights would be on permanently.
I checked the brake-light but found that just touching it caused it to work. I checked it was making a good connection and now all three lights appear to work ok, however under breaking the front side-light still comes on.
With the headlights on all three brake-lights still come on permanently but sometimes flicker when the brake is applied.
I have checked for loose connections damaged wires etc. but have found none, could the cause of this be;
1. A faulty switch on the brake pedal (which I assume is at the top of the pedal)
2. The Headlight relay ( I assume this is in the fuse box but not sure if it's labeled of a specific colour)
can anyone shed any light Ha Ha!
I change the switch on the break I have power to the siginal and the turn siginal work but when I step on the breaks i have no break lights on my 2000 ford explore

Follow the light my son..stay away from the switches and relays...your solution lies in the powers/grounds at the chassis /bulb areas...the grounded power to the front bulb is causing brakes to go on..(they are ground actuated )....so you are closer than ever to solving this ..go back to each location making sure that they are clean , grounding to chassis and getting power... the gremlin will go away when ALL are power/ground happy
