    Check the rear lamp socket wires to see if any of the wire insulation is burnt off. If it is , insulated with electrical tape.

the fuse is labled 'brake'

I would replace the fuse... and then have someone stand to the rear of the vehicle and watch the lights come on as I applied the brake... if the fuse blows again... note which tail light did NOT come on durring this test and replace the bulb.. it is grounding to itself and causing the short.

I have a 2000 Ford Focus Wagon. tail light and instrument panel


i have a 2000 focus wagon and had the same problem. It's not the fuse! It's the wiring harness at the point where it leaves the body and goes into the hatch. When the hatch is opened and closed repeatedly after years the wires will break with constant bending. I had to solder together 7 wires and the problem was solved. It's a lot cheaper than replacing the entire wiring harness.

No tail lights/instrument lights on 2001 Ford Focus Wagon


Your problem is you have a Hot Wire touching ground.I know this for sure! The quwstion is where is it?the cause of the problem. It can be fixed but you would have to have a lot of patience.Try using your nose,sniff out the smell of burned copper under the dash or in the trunk area if you can smell it you can find it.Up the rating of the fuse go 15 then 20 then 25 see if it still blows it shoud. I wished I were near you man I love these problems.Good luck!

No tail lights and no interior lights, brake and hazard work


check for the complete fuse box and search for short circuits. Check the fuses and the amps of each. Did you change the battery for a new one? Did you install any device not OEM? An alarm? Check the cable system. If this is ok, scan it.

Brake lamps and reverse light dont work but everything else does


You might remove the tail light bulds and inspect the lead contacts on the bottom of the bulb. While the bulbs are out install a new fuse and if it doesn't blow this time install one bulb at a time to see which side is blowing the fuse. If it blows right away the prob could be in the headlight switch or in the wiring somewhere. If its been sitting 3 months its possible rats have chewed on the wiring.
