2004 Ford windstar just lost its rear brake lights , no backups lights, Nothing works all of a sudden


check fuses/relays and is it just brake lights that have failed. if so and fuses/relays ok, there is a brake light switch at the top of the peddle that may have moved or wire come off. to test the switch just join the 2 wires together and brake lights should come on. hope this helps

2004 Cadillac Deville when you turn on the turn signals all lights including trunk bake strip blink by cutting the green wire on the drivers side tail light plug it stopped and everything appears to work...


Green is usually the left turn signal. it should go to the turn signal switch on the steering column. I would start checking the wires (black) and make sure they all have ground to the body. And if they do I would look at the turn signal switch. All of your lights on the outside of the car go threw the turn signal switch. Head lights, turn, park and brake.

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?


The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

2006 F150 no brakes light all other lights work


Does this include the CHMSL ( Center High Mount Stop Lamp ) ?
The turn signals work fine when you say all other lights work ?

If so could be 2 things.
1. The BPP ( Brake Pedal Position ) Switch
1.1. The BPP has 4 wires on it
1.1.1. Tan w/ Red stripe & Pink w/ Light Green stripe are the shift interlock
1.1.2. Light Green w/ red stripe & Light Green wires are the Brake lamp part of the BPP.

When you have the brake off, the Light Green w/ Red stripe wire should have power on it ( from fuse #2 ) and when you press on the brake pedal, the Light green wire should also have power.
- If only the Light green w/ red stripe wire has power with the brake on and off, and the Light green wire never has power, the BPP switch needs to be replaced.
- If the Light Green wire does not have power ( and you are use of the ground you are testing with ) fuse #2 is blown.

- The fuse for the brake lamps ( Fuse #2 in the cab fuse panel ).
-- This is if the CHMSL is also not functioning

Can't get Shifter out of park on a 2005 F150 ford Truck.


If this is a new body style 2004 ( not a heritage or lightning ) did you check fuse #16 ? This is the fuse for the shift interlock switch on the brake pedal.

IF this fuse is good, check the shift interlock section of the brake pedal position ( BPP ) switch ( on the side of the brake pedal lever, usually has a yellow c-clip cover on it ).
The wires for the shift interlock circuit
Fuse #16 to Tan w/ REd stripe wire
Pink w/ light green stripe to the shift interlock solenoid.

If there is power on the Tan w/ REd stripe wire, press the brake pedal down, and check the pink w/ light greens stripe wire for power ( switch is closed when brake pedal is pressed.

If you do not have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new shift interlock solenoid.

I have a 2004 f150 and it will not shift out of park unless i pull up the council and push the bypass button... i replaced brake lights cause 2 were blown but the problem wont go away...


The color codes for the brake / shift interlock switch that trojan121cmo posted about :

Tan w/ Red stripe from Fuse #16 to Pink w/ Light green stripe wires

The brake lamp circuit is the other 2 wires, Light Green w/ Red stripe wire from Fuse #2 to Light green wire ( which feeds the CHMSL & the MFS for the rear tail lamps ).

If you pull the BPP ( Brake Pedal Position ) switch connector, you should be able to jumper the back with a paperclip to test it.

Don't know if the 97-03 MY work around still works ( not by my truck to check right now ), but this was turn the key to the accessory position, press and hold the brake, move the gear shift lever to neutral, then start the truck. This is when the shift interlock and the brake circuit were one in the same. Don't really know if it still works now that the shift interlock is on a separate circuit.

Trailer wiring


you have to purchase a converter box with 5 wires, red, yellow, green and brown. this is because your turn signal is seperate from you parking and brake light bulb. you have to wire it straight in behind the connector.your basically converting two wires ( brakes and parking) to one wire (tailights) 5 wire to 4 wire.
