    I've now discovered that the problem exists when steering wheel is in the full down position only. If I position it higher all's fine. Any thoughts?

    I have the same problem, my actual brake lights do not work and it is a problem with the wiring in the steering column. I know how to fix the problem, but how do I prevent it from happening again?

Due to poor design on Fords part. When you use the tilt often, the wires inside due not have enough relief. They are to tight. My 02 sport track had same problem. Wire actually broke off inside the steering column. Take off the lower then upper plastic around column. You probably have broken or loose wires

I have read on other posts that it is the turn signal switch. I expereinced the same problem and will continue to drive with the stearing wheel up until I find a good donor Explorer. Although I think the donor will have the same defective parts. ie, turn signal switch, power window switch/door lock, blower motor resistor, rear wiper arm, washer pump.

I had the same problem with my left rear lights and read you post to only find that my solution was the same- the steering wheel was too low. Strange Fix ?

Are the sockets those bulbs in even getting power? And if so, maybe the ground is not sufficient or loose. Check to see if there is power to those sockets, then try checking for loose ground. Sorry if that doesn't help any.

Have a ford explorer sport trac and rear brake lights don't come on I replaced the bulbs and checked all fuses all good could it be the brake switch if the third brake in the center comes on ?


There is a short in the steering column. Put the tilt steering all the way up. You may even have to push it up. This will close the short. Open the cover and you will see the wire has become loose in the harness.

Check the bulbs if the bulbs are good suspect the panel that the bulbs go into. Which are also called the sockets you may have to replace the sockets this is not an uncommon problem.

2001 ford sports trac brake lights not working ,


This may be a simple fix, where the wheel jack or washer bottle is located in the back behind the panel, there should be connectors for the rear lights, it is possible that the plug has been dislodged, remove the panels and check the plug connections. Good luck.

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.
