Brake lights were on continuously.changed brake switch now the wont work at all and stuck in park


The brake switch is probably mis-adjusted. If it does not activate when the brake pedal is depressed, the brake lights will not light and the gear shift release solenoid will not activate. That, or the wiring harness is not connected properly to the switch or is damaged.

Brake lights staying on when car comes out of park 2002 ford focus


Clint, you might want to check your break switch to see if your button is stuck. It is right above your brake pedal. The pedal led actually hits the button of the switch. See if you can loosen it.

My sidelights come on when i brake ive checked earths and changed bulbs its a 1.6 ford focus lx


one or more of your bulbs in the brake light sockets is wrong or you have a short circuit between the brake light wire(s) and the running light wiring.

Check the back bulbs 1st.

My 2001 ford focus is stuck in park, stepping on brake, does not release it from park, and brake lights are not working.........


Without the brake lights working the shift interlock can't release. Turn the key just off the "locked" position and you should be able to shift to neutral and start the engine then shift to drive or reverse. Just don't shift back into park until you are parking the car to leave it.

2003 Ford Focus ZX-5: Brake lights stuck on


Check the lights on the 3rd brake light. If the bulbs are out the brake lights will remain on when in gear, but work properly when in park. I had the same problem had to go to Napa to get bulbs (5) and now all is fine.

2001 Ford Focus shift button stuck in park


it's under a dime size cover on your console near the shifter. But, your brake/shift interlock solenoid is not working. either a fuse or the solenoid is bad. see owner manual for lcoation of over ride.

Brake lights


The first place to check is your fuses - it sounds like one of them is burnt out. The fuse panel location will be in your manual.

If you find it and replace it and your brake lights fail again you'll have to start looking for a short in the system somewhere...
