Brake light switch location are usually located above the brake pedal, you have to visually look and see. If you follow the the brake pedal upward youll come across a switch possibly and when you depress the brake pedal you can see that the switch is no longer touching the brake pedal. If thats the location of the switch then you can see that youll have to disconnect it from the wires connected to this switch and there should be a connector that you can unplug, Most of them are very easy to disconnect. once disconnected you may remove the switch and replace. I hope this has helped

The "multifunction switch" is bad. In the old days, this was called the turn signal switch. The brake light wiring for the two non functioning lights goes through this switch. Have your mechanic check the wiring into and out of this switch. It's in the steering column.

SOURCE: 1998 Mystique brake lights don't work while the window brake light does work.

Try a continuity test, not sure where to find the electrical scheme but if you obtain it, use a tester or borrow one to test the continuity of the wires of both taillights, could be simple as a cut wire.

SOURCE: valve cover gaskets

Valve cover gaskets are a snap, even for a real dummy.  Get a set, don't fall for the "BEST IN THE MARKET".  All you need is a cheap set of something, that will seal the covers.  Get a small tube or bottle of NON-HARDENING sealer.  Clean both surfaces , put some sealer on the engine, and the valve cover, put the gasket in place and tighten it down to a few foot pounds of torque.  It doesn't need to be cranked down tight enough to hold back an elephant, just enough to squeeze the gasket.  Let it dry overnight before you start the engine.

Two different problems. Check the linkage between the ignition switch and the transmission interlock. Also check for a brake-light interlock - if the brake lights don't light when you press the brake pedal, the brake light switch may be the cause of that problem.

As to the fan... are we talking about the heater/AC fan or the radiator cooling fan? Either may be as simple as a blown fuse - check the fuseblock under the hood.

What number fuse is my brake lights in a 1998 mercury mystique fusebox


Sounds like loose wiring to either the earth or Postive connection in the main running wiring. rechk all connections particuarly yr pull off/on connections. Most fuses run at 10A for lights, but this depends on how many using this fuse. Chk that power is getting thru to various points with a meter, this will show u where the porblem lies. cheers

My break light is not tuning off(i dont mean light on dash board).the light at the rear of the car(mercury mystique 1998)


It could be the switch on your brake pedal or it could be a short in the brake wiring harness causing the brake light to stay on.I,m not sure but I would also check to see if those cars have a relay in the brake circuit.

good luck

Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.


Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.
