Question about 2001 Ford Excursion
The switch is down on the brake pedal lever arm near the pivot stradling the master cylinder actuating rod. You can verify the wiring is okay by using a paperclip to jumper the two wires and verify the brake lights do come on- if they do- replace the switch by removing that bolt that retains the actuating rod, and the switch slips out once the bolt is removed, Reinstallation is just like removal only opposite steps- verify the flat on the actuator is contacting the switch and works correctly once installed. nut and Bolt should be torqued to about 20 to 30 Ft Pounds.

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Are your hazard lights and/or reverse lights working? I can't remember which ties in with your brake lights but one of them do.

the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch. the power for the left and right brake lights goes through the turn signal switch, but power for the center mount comes straight from the brake light switch. this allows the brake light to be turned of so the turn signal can operate as they use the same filimant in the bulb.
