Question about 2005 Ford Five Hundred
Slowly all the rear lights on my car stopped working. Initially it started with the rear third brake light, then the brake lights, finally my hazard lights. At this point the only lights that work on the rear of the car are the driving lights and the backing up lights.
Does anyone know if this is a common problem for 06 Ford Five Hundreds? how does one replace the rear brake light on a ford 500?
My 05 has 3 nuts that hold the taillight assembly onto the car. in the trunk, pull the matting back, my be some snaps holding or cargo hooks. unscrew or pull, then take the 3 nuts off and entire tail light assembly should come off. Then twist out the correct but connector.

Saw one message thread which may have some relationship to your problems:

If you don't have a meter, it may help considerably with troubleshooting your problem; the ycost < $20 US and are handy around the home too.
As the thread above pointed out, checking a battery with no load on it is pretty useless unless it measures dead- that is probably correct but always stress the battery somewhat with headlights or starter to see if it can still do what you need. It is typical with a headlight load and engine off for the battery to drop some from its nominal 12.6 V but not more than a 1/2 - 3/4 volt. The starter will drag a healthy battery down to ~ 11 volts and this is normal. Below 10, the starter may not turn fast enough to start the engine.
I suspect that you have electrical connector problems and may have to spend some time ferreting them out.
