One side of my back stop light does not work i have ford focus 2001

The brake and turn signal lamps are controlled by what Ford calls a multifunction switch [the blinker control on the column]. If the lamp works on turn signal but not on brake, it definitely is the multifunction switch. If neither work, it still could be the switch or a bad wire.

I have a 1977 Ford E-150, when I turn on the headlights I have no turn signal lights and no brake lights. With the headlights off the turn signals work fine and the brake lights are fine. My idea is brake...

Well, the headlight switch would have no connection to the brake and turn signals. But you could have a ground problem somewhere.
I would want to trace the circuit from the brake switch to the tail lamps with the headlights on to verify.
And does it matter if you are using headlights or just parking lights.

I have a 1998 ford explorer, The turn signals only work when you slam the tilt steering wheel all the way up and then you have to hold it there, Then once I let go the stop working...Please can anyone help...

Yes, you need a new turn signal switch. Tilt columns are kind of ******* switches for just the reasons you stated: Quick, forceful movements puts strain on wiring and switches..

I have a 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis the turn signals, brake lights, and turning lights do not work. The running lights and hazard lights do work. I checked the bulbs and the relay can for the turn signals...

Turn signal switch (also brake light canceling switch) most likely bad or bad wire to it or from it. Check, with key on run, for power into switch. Turn switch on, check for power out. No power out switch bad. Power out, trace to rear tailight harness for broken wire.

When the headlights are on in my 1977 f 150 the turn signals and break light dont work? the park lights come on it does not blinf k on the instrument panel as well

This sounds like it could be that you need to check your bulbs for one that has burnt out or broken. Also, you may need to check to see if you may need to replace your turn signal flasher. Hope this helps.

Turn signal and brake light problem

Had the exact problem on my 98 ranger 2wd reg cab stepside with the 2.5l 4 banger. Anytime I pressed the brake my passenger side turn signal would light up solid on the dash and the lights outside. I pulled both rear lights and both headlights and turn signals to check for corrosion/loose wires. Nothing. I checked and cleaned all my grounds and fuses. Nothing. Not until I followed my rear taillights wire harness did I find the problem. The two taillights are connected to each other via wire harness. My truck had the harness split with an adapter for trailer brakes. This harness was the problem. It is located under the rear bumper by the spare tire. Simply disconnect two harness plugs going into each side and remove it. Then connect the two plugs to each other. Problem solved.
