Question about 2000 Ford Escort
I have a v reg 2.3 galaxy with no brake lights.
the system check on the dash does not extinguish on pressing the brake pedal and the b.lights do not work. fuse fine replaced anyway.bulbs fine replaced anyway. The side light element in the bulb illuminates but the second filament ie the brakes does not in either bulb.
there appears to be two compression switches on the brake pedal. i suspect one disengages the dash brake check and the other controls the illumination of the brake bulbs. is this correct? they both appear fine all wires secured.
Take the wires off the switches on the pedal and touch together if the lights come on the switch is faulty
