How do i fix the brake lights on my mercury sable. all the other lights work fine

Does your car have the `lamp out'indicator system? It's more complicated.
My manual shows fuse #28 , a 15 amp fuse powers the brake bulbs.Is this the one you changed?
A bulb can be out for a long time and you don't notice it,then the other burns out and you think they both went out at the same time,but they might not have,see?
So check the bulbs and make sure you got that brake switch installed correctly. don-ohio (:^)

2004 ford mustang mach 1 brake lights dont work dont have manual to change the fuse

I don't believe there is a separate fuse for the high-mount brake light. Never was on older cars, that brake light is just spliced into the rear brake lights. Have you checked the bulb?

2 of 3 brake light bulbs dont light up when brake pressed only when lights are on do all 3 bulbs light up, only on the right side, left bulbs turn on, I changed fuses and bulbs no luck

Chek the light harness ground connection, for each "faulty" bulb. l suspect the brake lights are detecting the gound from the running lights, which is the only time they all function.
