Question about Ford E-150
I have a problem with my brake lights in my 2007 E-150 van. I replaced the pedal switch after checking the light bulbs, everything works: turn signals, hazard lights, tail lights but not the brake lights. I thought may be there was no voltage at the switch but again there's power there... any suggestions?
The brake light wire leaves the brake switch and goes into the turn signal switch. They often share the same wire: the rear turn signals and the brake lights. When turning, that side is routed through the turn flasher, but you get a steady brake light on the other side.
So you have power to the brake switch. Pull apart the connector for the turn signal switch, and see if you have power in on the brake wire (with brake depressed of course) going into the turn switch. If you have power in, plug the connector together, and see if you can backprobe the connector with test light or voltmeter, looking for power out to the rear brake lights. If power in, but no power out, the turn switch is probably bad.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge neon tail lights inop
looking at your schematics and , you say tail lights don't work , you didn't mention if front parking lights and license plate lights are working , they all come from the same source , a black /yellow wire , a good clue if front work and rear don't , please advise .if fronts work then you have a open circuit somewhere between junction S118 (near breakout for left headlamp) and rear sockets.

TEST FRONT RIGHT BLINKER CIRCUIT AND REPLACE THE BULB,,WITH PROPER BULB...A DOUBLE CIRCUIT BULB IN A SINGLE SOCKET WILL DO THAT ALSO A SINGLE SOCKET BULB IN A DOUBLE SOCKET HOLDER....CHECK LEFT SIDE BULB FOR ACURANCY

first check the fuse for the stop light circuit, if it's good, check your bulbs, it's possible they are all burned out! take one of them out, swap in a new one, and see if it lights. If not, get a wiring diagram and start checking for your powers and grounds. Take a look at the stop light switch on the brake pedal. If it's no good, there is a good chance that your cruise control may not work properly either. Good luck.

Can you just check to make sure the ignition key switch is not staying over to far and not backing off when you try to start it. I had a truck that did that and it messed up my turn signals until I brought the key switch back a little after starting it. Just a simple idea. Be kind with your rating for me. Raz
