Question about 2002 Ford Focus
Brake lights work OK when transmission in park, as soon as you go in gear, rear brake lights come on. Upper stop light is disconnected as it filled up with water. In reverse, backup lights come on and brake lights go out, but problem is not always repeatable.
Check the wiring in the rear lamps. Look for corrosion int the plugs.

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

It sounds like the shifter lock out solenoid has gone bad.It is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you push the brake pedal.

no disrespect but....
Check the book and make sure you are using the proper bulbs on all sides. (3957 looks just like 3956 but wont work right)

my 05 has 3 nuts that hold the taillight assembly onto the car. in the trunk, pull the matting back, my be some snaps holding or cargo hooks. unscrew or pull, then take the 3 nuts off and entire tail light assembly should come off. Then twist out the correct but connector.
