Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
Bulbs are good... fuses under the steering wheel are good,, don't know if one of the relays under the hood are bad becuase they are labeled by number,, not what their for
but why would the third brake light still work?
Cant give an answer to why until you check a couple of things,HUse a testlight/probe to check wether you have power to the bulb holders Take a bulb out of the ones that dont work and touch the terminals with a testlight/probe if there is no power trace the wiring to the bulb that does work and find the break in the wire.If there is power then the earth is probably no good .With the existing bulbs in place push from behind the bulb holder terminals so they are firmly against the bulbs terminals to guarantee contact and eliminate as fault.Check that they are correctly fitted and the right type etc .Also the terminals ,bulb/globe,must match the terminals in the bulb holders.This problem is usualy an issue with the earth being no good but have tried to cover all possibilitys.Do you have trailer plug that is damaged?
