2008 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Cab (without moon roof or rails): How to replace the map light bulbs. First, you'll need a "trim pad remover." It is a tool with a screwdriver handle and the metal part has a 'smooth' forked tongue (see Snap-on Stock#: A177A for picture). Go to the center counsel and "gingerly" work around he counsel and pull down at the same time. The counsil is held in by six snap in tongs. It should remove pretty easily. once down, you'll see where the bulbs are. Unscrew and replace. Now, just line up the tongs and gently bump or hit the pressure points (where the tongs are) and it should snap into place. It should take no more than five minutes, tops.

Probably either a bad ground (broken wire, rust) or a bad headlight switch. The brake light circuit goes from the stop switch (Located up above the brake pedal) through the headlight switch, through the light bulbs to ground. The tail light circuit goes through the headlight switch, through the bulbs and to ground. The only things that are in common are the headlight switch (Is this the switch you replaced?) and ground.
Not much, but hope this helps.
Have a super day!

Just found the answer on another site. Sure enough went out removed the 3 philips head screws in the steering column opened it up and walla a wire connection had pulled itself free. When my son uses my truck he always uses the tilt steering, when I get in I have to readjust it. because of this the wire connection pulled itself out. I simply pushed it back in an blinker and brake light are now working. My husband is now trying to figure a way to secure the wire connection so it doesn't pull itself out again. Hope this helps others, either by saving the cost of a dealership or machanic or from getting rear ended.

The brake light switch is made of plastic and has threads on it it is located on the brake pedal, look under the dash nd follow the arm of the brake pedale and you will see a single switch with two or three wires the wires simply pull off and there is a single nut that locks the switch into postion. while looking at the switch wtith a flashlight push the brake pedal down with your hand look to see if the switch loses contact with the metal frame if it does not then the switch is most likely stripped and will need to be replaced. you can buy at any parts store or buy at a ford dealer, they rage from $15.00 to $25.00 dollars if it does not have a lock nut holding it in plcae then screw the switch out after removing the wires and the wires are not on in any patictular order.
