If they are working,, but are dim try checking the ground wire, most likely the ground wire is loose and not making good connection and that will cause a draw on your lights..

SOURCE: No brake lights

have you checked the bulbs ? you have 3 things that need to be checked you have the brake light switch on the brake pedal , then you have multifunction switch and a hazard switch. some cars the hazard is on the multi but I cant remember for sure on yours so I put it there for you. the multifunction switch is the most common problem for brake light problems and you just have to test out put and inputs at each one.

Check the brake switch. A bad brake switch will fail to turn on the brake lights.

1999 Ford Contour Sport. My right turn signal works but does not


Check the wires to the plug. You can remove the plug by pressing on the wire clip and pulling apart. Check the terminals for corrosion and clean them if corroded/rusty, then assemble. Remove the bulb and check corrosion on the bulb contacts in the bulb socket and reassemble. Turn the lights on and try wiggling the wires and ttwisting the bulb slightly to check contact, while the bulb receptacle is out of the brake light. If the light comes back on when you have done these things then this may have been the problem. Try using a dielectric grease on the wiring connections and in the socket of the bulb to alleviate any more issues.(I have a contour also so this was the problem with mine) Wayne
