I had same problem. It was a bad wiring harness for the rear passenger side tail light assembly. Also I had to get a new pair of rails for the rear tail lights (the black rectangle-ish assembly on the back of your tail lights that the bulbs go into. The rear rails got fryed from getting too hot (also had LED rear lights that did same thing). One last note; make sure you also adjust your brake (stop) switch located on the upper part of your brake pedal.

2011 ford feista se brake light out on drivers side. Running light and blinker work. Have replaced bulb and socket with same results what do I do now?


Did you try the passenger side brake bulb in the driver side socket (maybe the new lamp is bad)??

If it works, then the problem is either a bad ground connection / wire at / between chassis and the shell of brake lamp socket, or bad 12 volt wire at / between the common passenger 12 volt brake light wire in the harness to the center contact on the brake lamp socket.

My suggestion is if the brake lamp wire is ONLY for brakes - not the directional too, simply add a new wire spliced into the passenger side brake light wire and extend it to the brake light wire closest to the new socket that you recently installed on the driver side. Disconnect the vehicle brake wire from the new socket and wire nut it off or tape it up (so it can't short out if it somehow becomes energized again) and splice this new wire to the new socket.

Test & you're done!

Why The back lights wont turn on, is a 1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer?


If by "back lights" you are referring to the backup lights and 10A FUSE 26 in the interior fuse panel checks OK, the transmission range switch may be defective.

If the park lamps are not working, the headlamp switch or the park lamp relay could be defective.

If the stop lamps are not working, the brake on/off switch could be defective.

LED does'nt work on tail light but conventional bulb is working


Maybe your LED bulb is defective and so you need to replace that LED bulb with a new good quality one.
I can recommend you search for a LED High Bay Lights which are of high quality and cost-effective.These bulbs are reliable and save a lot of power.
You can also find here simple and easy to use plug and play LED lamps.
Hope this will help!

Rear brake light doesn't work when headlights on


If you take the tail light assembly off and take the bulb out, you'll see three metal contacts on the tail light assembly.  Pry them up slightly and slide a small, folded piece of aluminum foil underneath it.  
Replace the bulb and try to reproduce the problem.  I found this fix online and did it to both sides of my car.. no problems since

Brake light work fine as longs as the head lights are off. Once you turn on the head lights the brakes with the exception of the center light on top.


Check the bulb sockets, it is common on these vans that water gets into the bulb sockets and shorts out the socket. You may need to replace the sockets to get them to work again. Also check the bulbs as these are dual filament bulbs, when your lights are off and you step on the brake it lights the parking lamp filament. However as the lights are on the brake lights may seem to not work as the parking lamps are already on.
