Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Rear brake light function not working

My Ford Ranger rear brake/turn lampsare ok and no blown fuses. The lamps work OK as turn signaling and the other lamp elements work OK as running lamps. The lens for each side only has two bulbs, one for reverse and the two element bulbs for brake/run/turn. I suspect there is some turn flasher/brake electrical module or internal to the flashers to operate brake lighting. Also verified the cab-over third brake light works OK. Can anyone help?

08 Buick lucerne cxl. Third brake light works as well as front signal lights. No rear brake lights or turn signals. Tail lights and headlights and third brake lights works. Bulbs good. Help


Stop Lamps
The brake pedal position sensor is used to sense the action of the driver application of the brake pedal. The body control module (BCM) provides a 5-volt reference voltage and low reference to the brake pedal position sensor. The position sensor provides an analog voltage signal back to the BCM that will increase as the brake pedal is applied. When the brake is applied, the BCM will then apply battery voltage to the left and right stop/turn signal lamp supply voltage circuits and the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) supply voltage circuit illuminating the stop lamps. At the same time the BCM applies battery voltage through the signal circuit to the transmission control module (TCM) and the engine control module (ECM) indicating that the brakes are applied.
Ground for the stop lamps is supplied as follows:
• G402 provides ground for the left rear stop/tail/turn signal lamps
• G403 provides ground for the right rear stop/tail/turn signal lamps
• G301 provides ground for the CHMSL
The stop lamps on this vehicle will not illuminate unless the ignition is in the accessory, run, or crank positions. When the ignition is in the OFF position the stop lamps will not illuminate when the brake pedal is applied.
Battery voltage from the LT TRN/SIG and RT TRN/SIG fuses located in the rear fuse block is also used by the body control module (BCM) for stop lamp operation.

Turn Signal Lamps
Battery voltage supplied to the body control module (BCM) from the fuses listed below is used for turn signal and hazard lamp operation.
• LT TRN/SIG fuse for the left turn signals
• CTSY/RF TRN fuse for the right front turn signal
• RR TRN/SIG fuse for the right rear turn signal
When the turn signal switch is place in either the LEFT or RIGHT position, ground from G300 is applied through the turn signal switch signal circuit to the BCM indicating the turn signal request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies a pulsating voltage to the front and rear turn signal lamps supply voltage circuits cycling the lamps ON and OFF. At the same time the BCM sends a GMLAN serial data message to the instrument panel cluster (IPC) to cycle the appropriate turn signal indicator ON and OFF.
Ground for the turn signal lamps is supplied as follows:
• G104 provides ground for the left and right front turn signal lamps
• G402 provides ground for the left rear stop/tail/turn signal lamps
• G403 provides ground for the right rear stop/tail/turn signal lamps

No dashlight or rear running lights. brake lights and turn signals still work


Did you check proper fuse circuit for voltage? Use a test light to check for voltage. The tail lamps voltage comes by way of headlamp switch. Voltage for tail lamps is pink wire with blue tracer, goes hot when you turn on headlamp switch. Ground should be ok because the other lamps work.

No brake lights,no tail lights and no turn signals.I do have headlights


IS there front park lights? Sounds as if the multi-function switch is defective. The brake lights/park lights to rear run through this switch as well as the signals. ( common problem )

Left rear turn light wont work, bulb and fuses are ok.


Does the left brake light work? (only relevant if your signal and brake light are on a double element bulb in the same lamp assembly). Not relevant if you have an amber t/s light separate from the brake light. If the t/s and brake are in the same lamp housing and the brake light works the wiring is ok and the turn signal switch needs to be checked. If neither work a wire or connector is open circuited; or the ground for the lamp socket is not made. Hope this helps.

1995 ford windstar gl and only the top mount brake lamp is illuminating. Checked all fuses and bulbs and they are all ok. the rear lower 2 lamps illuminate when the lights are on, they just don't brighten...


Sounds like maybe a bad turn signal switch. If the brake and turn signal use the same bulb than the turn signal switch will interrupt the brake signal and supply a turn signal to the bulb. Usually you can wiggle the switch while holding the brake pedal down and get them to intermittently work. If that happens than for sure the switch has failed.

Are your hazard lights and/or reverse lights working? I can't remember which ties in with your brake lights but one of them do.

Rear Running Lights Out


Check the 10 amp "Tail" fuse. This controls the running lamps.
Note that the rear bulbs are "dual filament" bulbs, and even though the brake lamp feature works, the running light feature in the same bulb can be bad.
