The reverse lights are controlled by and part of the transmission range selector switch, this switch is the large electrical switch on the top of the trans where the shift cable connects.

Hi, on my 1999 Taurus wagon, I lost all power to tailgate hatch- reverse lights, license plate light, top brake light. What, most likely happened?


If you haven't already check fuses. If fuses are good. My guess would be brake light switch. IT'S a little box at the top of the brake pedal behind the dash. Try replacing it.

All signals and other flashers work but passenger front flashers do not work


Use a test light, test for power and ground at the bulb contacts. Then test for power and ground at the wires. Probably needs a new socket, common problem.

My brakelights and blinkers stoped working all at once on my 2001 ford taurus and i checked the fuses and they seem to be good i dont have an owners manuel but ckecked all my fuses 1 by 1


brake lights and blinkers are the same light. (same fillament in the bulb)
You really need a 12 volt test light or a meter to chase the problem.
See what is missing at the bulb socket, as in see if you have a ground and voltage for the parking lamps (Which you should) and then voltage for the brake or directions. If you dont, re-check the fuses to see if they actually have power going in and out of each. (Key on, directionals on)

I have a ford taurus 95 and the passenger brake lite and blinker is not working but when u put the lites on the bulbs work but still no brake lite and blinker


You most likely need a new bulb in that location.
It is a dual filament bulb......one filament for the brake and signal and one for the running light ....both in the same bulb.
Remove the old bulb and get a replacement bulb using the # printed on the old bulb.
