Brake Lights on a 05 Ford Escape

The center-high brake light works, but the other brake lights do not. The fuses are good and I just replaced the bulbs. This did not fix the problem. What should I do?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Check the ground wire. There would be 3 wires, brake, tail/park and ground. To verify, have someone step on the brakes, jump the base/metal body of the bulb socket to any exposed metal such as a screw/bolt.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

I have a problem with the low beams on my headlights. The high beams works just fine. All of the other lights(turn signal, emergency lights, etc.) work except for the low beams.


Check the fuses first. then replace the turn signal switch if all fuses are good. All the lights run threw it, except the high brake light on the rear.

2005 Ford Escape, shifter won't release from park, brake lights won't work


Well the same brake light switch for the rear lights unlocks the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to shift out of park when the key is between lock and on. There are two fuses involved.

2006 brake light will not go out


Light gets power from brake light switch/.May be switch got shorted an brake light getting non-stop power causing it not to turn OFF brake light.

Get the brake light switch checked. Check volt at brake light switch.

It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its wiring short for switch.

I have no break lights or turn signals


Turn signal tail lights and BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING


It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its blown brake light bulb. First check and confirm brake light lamp is working and that's not the case.

For turn signal not working it can be faulty turn signal switch or its issue with wiring:----

2009 ford escape turn signals and brake lights work but no taillights checked bulbs look good no where in owners mannual does it list tailight fuse or location


I think your problem locating the fuse may be because Ford refers to the lights you are describing as "PARK" lamps, instead of "TAIL" lamps. The PARK fuse is Fuse #22 (15 Amp) located in the Smart Junction Box (SJB) in the center of the dash.

HINT: This same fuse also protects the circuits your front park lamps, if they are working, the fuse is not blown.
