To reset the light, turn the key to position two and have the drivers door open for about 40 seconds, the light should automatically go off.. good luck.

95 cougar stuck in park with no brake lights.already check the fuses replaced brake light switch, connector.car will not start from neutral.


Still no brake lights would indicate a bad wire. Check for power at the brake switch, repair the wire, they usually break close to the plug. This will get back the lights and shifter. The no start would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission. Usually the switch is under the shifter cable. Some have a separate switch.

I have a 1991 Mercury Cougar LS. Intermittently the left brake light will fail to work. The right one works, as does all the rest of the lights,: reverse, park, turn signal, etc, even when the brake


Replace the bulb first, if it still does this replace the socket and make sure the ground for the light is clean and tight and that the connectors for the tail lights are fully clipped together.

I have a 1990 Mercury Cougar. Several problems...Blinkers, hazards, horn, and break lights are not working. However the break light in the back window comes on when the break is pressed. Checked fused and...


I am unaware of what a "CO" display is.
Now with the blinkers, hazard, horn and brake lights not working that may be the multi funtion switch (blinker switch) that is located inside the column (where the blinker lever attaches).
Obviously the blinker, hazard and horn will all work off of something in the column. Brake lights, you may think a switch on the pedal.

the brake lights do work with that switch but when you have the kind of tail lights where a turn signal light shares the same bulb as a brake light, the brake light is cancelled for the turn signal by running through the multi function switch inside the column.
The third brake light does not blink so its not on that same circuit.

1995 Ford f250 brake lights don't work ad neither do the hazard flashers. I replaced the flasher node and the turn signals began to work but still no brake lights.


You may have a bad signal switch..Your brake lights run through the signal switch..Try hitting the brakes and move the switch around and see if your brake lights come on intermittently..

The lower breaking lamps on a mercury cougar are not lighting up. Have checked the bulbs and the fuse and all ok. The break lamp in the rear window works fine as well.


IN THE BREAK PEDAL IT HAS A SWITH BUTTON THAT WHEN YOU PUSH THE PEDAL TO BRAKE IT MAKES THAT THAT BRAKE LIGHTS TURN ON AND WHEN YOU RELEASE THE PEDAL TURN THE BRAKE LIGHTS OF THESE SWITCH HAS 2 CABLES YOU NEED TO CHANGE IT IN A YUNKYARD YOU CANT FIND IT CHEP IF YOU DONT FIND A MERCURY COUGAR SEARCH A THUNDERBIRD OR A GRAND MARQUIS OR LINCOLN THEY HAVE THE SAME TYPE OF PARTS AND ITS EASY TO REMOVE IT YOU CAN DO IT YOUR SELF

Brake lights and turn signals quit working


The first thing to do is check the fuses, the fuse may have blown, maybe to a short or bad bulb, start with the fuses and also make sure the 4way hazard lights switch is off.

1999 Mercury Cougar 2.5L initially blower motor died, hazard lights stopped working, ran great, but now will not shift out of park.


this sounds like you should be keeping up with checking fuses with a test light on both sides of the fuse,the inter lock solenoid on the shift cable is not powering up,check your brake switch.

Turn signals and hazard light stop working inside and out of car,


Try this easy check. Press the hazard switch on and off about 20-30 times and see is it all starts working again. The contacs in the switch assembly get dirty and this will help clean them up from non use. Worth a try.

1998 chevy lumina brake lights intermittent.


This is a classic example of turn signal switch failure. On GM vehicles with a multi-function turn signal switch and combination stop/turn/tail lights (all rear lights are behind red colored lenses except for back-up lights) The brake light power is routed through the turn signal switch. This makes it possible for the right rear light to function as a stop light while the left rear turn signal flashes, and vice-versa. When the contacts fail to remain constant the brake lights, and turn signals can become intermittent. The proof that the brake light switch is functioning correctly is that the high center (cyclops) brake light functions properly. Wiring integrity is verified if you can prove that turn signals operate, but that can still be intermittent with this complaint, BUT if you use your hazard switch to turn on all the signals at once, you can verify wiring integrity. This is because the turn signal, and the brake light use the same circuit, and bulb filament in the rear lighting assembly. If any Hazard lights fail to function, check bulbs first, then retest. If all Hazrd light flash correctly and reliably, bulbs, sockets, and wiring have proven integrity, and the turn signal switch is the remaining component in the system which needs to be tested. Unfortunately, this switch requires disassembly of the steering column for service, testing or replacement. If you have never disassembled, and successfully reassembled a GM tilt steering column, I would reccommend professional assistance.
