Hi Rebecca, I suggest you have the connections to the right hand lamp holder checked. It seems as if the cables have been incorrectly connected at some time by someone. Regards John

most likely cause is that the multifunction switch is defective on the steering column. MOTORCRAFT Part # SW5599 Price $96.00

SOURCE: No brake lights

have you checked the bulbs ? you have 3 things that need to be checked you have the brake light switch on the brake pedal , then you have multifunction switch and a hazard switch. some cars the hazard is on the multi but I cant remember for sure on yours so I put it there for you. the multifunction switch is the most common problem for brake light problems and you just have to test out put and inputs at each one.

yes it sounds like the turn signal switch is defective, the brake lights go through that switch as well.

My 2002 Ford Focus brake lights stay on in drive, cruise control doesnt work and the hatch button in car doesnt work. I noticed the middle rear brake light is also out.


If you brake lights stay on and the cruise control doesn't work then I would be looking at the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal as if there is power passing through it then it cuts out the cruise control. The same as if you put your foot on the brake cuts out the cruise control. The hatch button will be another problem like a fuse or broken cable or failed latch solenoid. As to the rear middle brake light try checking the bulb first.

2001 ford focus left tail light not working... left brake light does


You should have the computer scanned for trouble codes for the warning light.
As for the tail light, I would check the socket with a test light or meter to see if the socket is getting power for that circuit. The brake-turn signal circuit of the bulb is different from the tail light circuit.

What fuse is it for taillights and dome light 2000 ford focus


Running lights (left side): Fuse #47 -- Running lights (right side): Fuse #48 -- Brake lights: Fuse #54. Fuse panel is on the lower left side (underneath) the dashboard. NOTE: If it is your brake lights that are not working and fuse # 54 looks okay, check the brake light switch, it may have gone bad. Dome light is fuse #46 or #47 depending on model.

2004 ford focus brake lights on when side lights on


This problem sounds like a short in the lighting system. Since the side lights get brighter when you press the brake pedal, you have power crossing from the brake wire to the marker wire. Try removing the left rear brake bulb and se if the problem continues. If it does, reinstall the left bulb and try removing the brake bulb on the other side and see if that fixes the problem. If the problem persists examin the wires closely for broken insulation.
