Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
I have a 1998 Ford Explorer XLT. The third brake light above the tailgate is flashing. When pressing the brake pedal, the third light goes on fully, but the two main brake lights don't come on. I tried looking at the fuses, but can't tell which one is for the brake lights. Ideas?
This does not sound like a fuse problem. seems like a wiring issue. You probably have wires shorted together, and/or shorts to ground somewhere.
Brake switch is a good place to start, make sure it's working fine. To find the wiring issue you will need electrical diagrams, so get yourself a repair manual for a 1998 Explorer.
Look at connectors, see if you can find components or connections where all the brake light and tail lights connect to together. Using a multi meter you should be able to pin point the issue if u follow the wiring from the battery to the lights using the diagrams and checking connectors.

La falla ocurre porque los dos (2) bombillos de la luz de freno (de doble contacto) están quemados, reemplacelos y solucionará el problema. Utilice bombillos de primera calidad, nunca use los baratos ya que no duran nada.
