Question about 1995 Ford Econoline

2 Answers

My 1995 Ford E-150's running light on the driver's side rear is not working. The brake, back-up, and turn signals lights all work properly. I have changed out the bulbs and fuses, but the problem persists. Is it the headlight switch, or could it be something else?

I think it would be the wiring near the rear. If it has trailer wiring then check all those connections. Not posible for a swith as on your vehicle the running lamps is one wire until it gets to the back. Also be sure and actually check for voltage at the bulb connection.

Take out the taillite and check the condition of the wires. especially the ground wire thats screwed to the sheet metal. a little corrosion can cause this. Also try wiggling the bulb in the socket with the running lights on and see if it starts lighting. Ground wire will usually cause other strange symptoms in the taillights, so I'd bet the problem is confined to the bulb or its socket. you may need to change the socket, Inspect it closely for dirt/corrosion. Don't forget to post your results. Cheers.

No turn signals, 1 driver brake light bad, ABS light on. 2002/2003 CVPI


Sounds like you have 'ground' issues. Apply the brakes using a broom stick or more apropriate tool so that the brake lights are activated. Then go to the brake light that is not bright enough. using a test-light with a sharp pointed probe, poke the ground wire close to the bulb (usually a black wire) make sure the test light is attached to a grounded bolt. if the brake light gets brighter with ground added, you need a new ground wire. Splice it in to the existing wire & attach it to a bolt. Lights should work better with proper ground. (each bulb has a positive post & neg. post, don't add ground to the side with power coming through it from Battery (+)(red light on test light) - probe wires FIRST with test light to find (+) POS. Hot wire, and leave that one alone.

Brake lights. Cab light works when brake pedal is depressed.Turn signals work properly but no brake lights at rear.Is it in the colum? Vehicle is a 1995 ford F250 4X4


Hi, if the schematic is right, the cab stop light is on the same fuse as the others. And, since there is no relay, the likely problem is the turn signal switch or the wire leading to the turn signal switch. Please let me know if you have questions or need instructions, and thanks for using FixYa.

2001 f 150 extended cab. trailer lights were working. had to replace a trailer light uhit because it was broken. now lights do not work properly. running lights work. turn signal only works if running...


The description of the problem is very confusing. If the trailer is disconnected, do all of the functions work OK? If so the problem is with the trailer wires. If all worked before you replaced the light, then thats where the problem lies. The turn signal/brake lights are a seperate circuit than the running lights. The brown should be hot with running lights, and the yellow and green are the turn/brake signals. The trailer lights should be grounded to the trailer frame, and the frame connected to the white wire, Make sure the white wire is connected to the plug on the truck side and connected to the frame of the truck. The turn signal that works with only the running lights on doesnt make sense, and grounds are the most common item. Some Ford trucks have seperate fuses for right and left. There a small fuse box under the hood, near the brake booster.

Check the ground on the passenger side rear lights, it's likely bad. As for the hazards, sounds like a bad flasher or fuse.

No running lights on boat trailer towed by 2008 ford f150


You can purcahse a tester which will connect into the F-150's wiring harnes. If the led lights up, the problem is witht he trailer's wiring harness. this tester will indicate the proper operation of the brake light and turn signals.
