Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
Ive changed the bulb. Turn signal and brake light works fine. Tried changing the socket as well. Same problem.
Power for the tail lights is supplied by the brown wire. Check for power on that wire at the socket. If there is no power than you will need to traced the wire and see where it is broken or not making contact. Harness connectors would be a good start as they like to corrode.
If there is power than look carefully at the socket. The metal tabs like to burn up. If the tabs that make contact with the bulb are not shiny silvery or brass looking than the socket is likely the problem.
I'm pretty sure the taillight sockets are interchangeable. You can unplug the one from the side that works and plug it into the side that doesn't work. If the light works than you know its the socket.
let me know if you have any questions and thank you for using FixYa.com!

Some newer vehicles have seperate fuses for lighting on each side of car, check that out first, check the ground for the socket

SOURCE: brake light issue.
the brake lights switch of the expedition is connected to the cruise control system. get yourself a wiring diagram and sort out the problem. i have read of fires being caused by that problem so be carefull.

Testimonial: "The response was helpful, although I already had a motorhead buddy come over and got them off for me. Thanks for the response!"
Whoa, there is a line marked on the fluid reservoir that you do not fill above. Be careful to make sure that you don't get dust/debris inside the reservoir. The owners manual and the reservoir have markings to tell you what type of fluid should be used.
