Yes therse a brake light switch activated by the movement of the brake pedal Follow the brake pedal arm up under dash and you will see a small switch.Move pedal in and out to see if the switch is being activated and no wires have fallen off.Yes all three could be burnt out but inlikely,This fault is usualy associated with corroded or poor chassis earth at the bulb holders and if the circuit board type they too will need to be checked Usualy checked with test light/probe to determine if the power is flowing with no resistance and wether the chassis earth is intact and working.Good luck

!997 Ford Thuderbird brake lights and hazards do not work


Lets start at the beginning.
The turn signals and brake lights use different fuses but both go thru the turn signal switch and use the same bulbs.
Have you checked the fuses for each circuit and does each switch have power in and out ?

Brake lights don't work on 1988 Ford Thunderbird


Check the brake light switch located under the dash, connected at the junction where the master cylinder rod connects to the brake pedal. Remove the connector and with a short piece of wire, paper clip works fine, insert into the two terminals on the connector. Check to see if your brake lights are on. If they are, your switch is bad.

1988 ford thunderbird brake lights and turn signals not working


When this happens the problem is most likely the multi-funtion switch aka turn signal switch. Check to see if the 3rd brakelight comes on when the brake pedal is pushed. If so replace the MFS. The 3rd brakelight in late 80's fords bypasses the turnsignal switch.
