Question about 1998 Ford Contour
I have third brake light and rear turn signal and both bulbs are new tested brake light circuit with a test light and nothing happend third brake light is on a different circuit than rear brake lights
If you have power thru the brake light switch, the next component to test is the turn signal switch. If the regular brake lights and turn signals are on the same circuit they both go thru the turn signal switch.

Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

I asked that becauses of the wiring for the tow setup. If the previous owner had uhaul or one of the other tow companies out there install the wires for the tow package they use a crappy little product that they clamp to the wire and push a pin that cuts the casing and connects the circuit. It also seriously weakens the cables, and lets water in to the wire. Since you have a tow package I'd focus on those wires back there sounds like you may have a short. Those pins do have some wire exposure when installed right and I've seen them bundled and taped on the early 2000's explorers without being individually taped first, which leads to shorts and non working turn signals and brake lights.

Check your hazard switch and see if it's engaged. cycle the switch a few times and see if that fixes it. Dirt gets in the switch and sometimes causes what your concern is.I hope this helps.
