Could have the wrong bulbs in. some bulbs are single or double filament.check bulbs.if good your bulb sockets could be bad or you got grounding problems.

No brake lights (bulb works when lights are on), no rear turn indicator lights(front turn indicators are working and rear bulbs do not appear to be blown)


The first thing i would check is the stop safety switch located under the brake pedal or brake pedal arm. If this piese has failed there will be no current to the brake lights when you apply the brakes

No brake lights check fuses no blown fuses but the center brake light work


If the center high mount brake light comes on when brake pedal is depressed, and the rear brakes don`t come on, and the fuses are not blown, then I would replace the rear bulbs.

I have a v6 1996 ford mustang everything are working well,head lights and park lights. but my problem are brake light and right & left turn signal are not working? thanks!


ok iam in spain and we use a different wiring circuit for indicators and brake lights ,now you vehicle has a special stop light switch that interferes with the indicators as and when the brake lights are applied ,so you use the stop lights which also work as indicators ,compared to europeon laws which require seperate indicators ,noy the problem you describe is common with american vehicles and the main cause is the fancy stop light switch they use

All of the bulbs for the brake lights are new all


Brake light switch, think it should be under the brake pedal. when brakes are applied, the pedal compresses the switch, which makes the brake lights come on.
