No brake lights

If the fuses, bulbs, switch are good then its your wiring, you have a break somewhere, check the switch behind your brake pedal, make sure you have power to the light sockets and they are not burnt, my wife has a ford edge and burnt right rear socket and the light still worked, go figure, anyways good luck

How to fix no brake light issue on 1999 Expedition

Have you tried wiggling the hazard light switch? The brake light switch puts 12 volts to the hazard/turn signal switch,and the switch will apply this to both taillights.If you turn on the left or right turn signal,it will only route 12 volts to the other light.If you turn on the hazard lights,it will only allow the 3rd brake to come on due to the brake switch.Often.the hazard light/brake light contacts get corroded due to not being turned on and off regularly.Have someone watch the taillights(or use a mirror) to see if they come on when you wiggle the hazard switch.If it does,turn the hazard light switch on and of repeatedly to clean the contacts.

My 199 Ford Expedition-Left turn signal and brake light in rear does not work. I had the buld changed last Sat. And it was working for almost a week...But now I was told by a friend that is not working...

It is very common for the light bulb socket to become minorly burned. You need to replace the socket. They are less than 10$. Hope this helps. TJ

How do I change the brake lights

If the rear light assy's don't have external screws, you have to remove the rear inner panels by the lights. They should have a wing nut screw for easy removal, then twist out the light socket and replace the bulbs, be careful not to touch the bulbs with your fingers, they will burn out fast, the acid affects the glass on the bulbs, also, use plenty of bulb grease to protect the bulb and the socket from corrsion and moisture, water.

I have no brake lights. i check fuses they are good. i change the lite bulbs. What else can i check?

Use a volt meter to verify power is leaving the fuse, check for power at bulb sockets, if no power then there is a open in the circuit, you'll beed to troubleshoot, start at the fuse and work youe way back towards the socket. When checking the socket, use the socket batt & gnd, then the socket batt & body gnd.

Bulb is goog but the left brake light and signal

Does it have trailer light plug. After market trailer plugs cause all kinds of problems and should be removed and replaced when they do. Also check the bulb in another socket to make absolutely sure it is bad. I have been fooled more than once by newer bulbs that break connection towards the bottom and you can't see it
