Most often the connector to the brake light swich is defective, use a 12 volt test light and check for battery voltage at the switch connector, if none move up the wire and proble the wire, if it lights the test light you need to splica a new connector on, ford has these repair connector.

SOURCE: iv got an 88 F150 4x4 iv got turn signals light

Do you have power at both sides of the brake switch when the brake is applied? If so it sounds like the turn signal switch is bad. try turning on and off the 4 ways a few times. sometimes this will clean the connections and it will start working.
The power goes through the fuse to the brake switch. from the brake switch to the turn signal switch from the turn signal switch to the tail lights. If the 4 ways are on the power goes through the 4 way fuse to the 4 way flashers then to both sides.
If the turn signal is on and the brake is on, the turn switch cansles the power from the brake and uses power from a 3 fuse and flasher for the side that the turn signal is called for.
If I typed to fast let me know. I can answer any questions you might have.
If this helped you please vote 4 thumbs up. :-)
good Luck and God Bless

Why won't tail lights and break lights work when you pull switch at night to turn on lights of my 1996 dodge ram truck?


Did you check for voltage and ground at the tail lamps? For the tail lamps, black wire with yellow tracer is voltage. Use a testlight to check for voltage with headlamp switch on. If the testlite comes on you have voltage. Then test the ground wire, it is black. To check ground use testlite connected to battery voltage touch the black wire, if the lite comes on you have ground. Of course to use testlite, you have to touch bare wire, not insulation. Also check the fuse, my info says fuse 18--15 amp. Not only check the fuse, check for voltage on the fuse circuit, hot all the time. I give guys and gals the same info, I don't know how else.

I would check the turn signal switch first. The brake lights may go thru the switch depending on the configuration.

Click on the link.
I can only help by telling you to check voltage and ground circuits. You check voltage by using a test lite, see the fuse in diagram, not only check the fuse, check the fuse circuit for voltage.
To check ground, you can still use the test lite, one end comes from voltage, the other end you touch to ground wire, the actual wire not the insulation, if the lite comes on, at least you know the ground is good enough to turn on the lite.
You can see voltage wire color coming from fuse. The ground wire not in the picture, black with yellow tracer.
on the hinge side of driver door is usually a wiring harness going into the driver door, probably has a protective covering, move cover back far enough to find the wire colors you want to check.
You open/shut driver door so much, sometimes those wires may break?

Rear window defroger does not work, lite on switch does not work so i feel it's a relay or fuse under the hood. I checked the fuse boxs but came up empty.

Brake lights not working, fuses, bulbs, pedal switch all new. Center brake light in window is working.


First check the ground on the brake lights. Make sure it is connected and not rusted. Next use a meter and check the voltage of the hot wire. If no power check for a break in the wire and or replace the wire back to the fuse block.

Rear window defroster wont work


With a 12 volt test light turn on the defroster and check for voltage at the grid connectors on both sides, if none is present the next step is to replace the switch/timer assembly.
