2011 ford feista se brake light out on drivers side. Running light and blinker work. Have replaced bulb and socket with same results what do I do now?


Did you try the passenger side brake bulb in the driver side socket (maybe the new lamp is bad)??

If it works, then the problem is either a bad ground connection / wire at / between chassis and the shell of brake lamp socket, or bad 12 volt wire at / between the common passenger 12 volt brake light wire in the harness to the center contact on the brake lamp socket.

My suggestion is if the brake lamp wire is ONLY for brakes - not the directional too, simply add a new wire spliced into the passenger side brake light wire and extend it to the brake light wire closest to the new socket that you recently installed on the driver side. Disconnect the vehicle brake wire from the new socket and wire nut it off or tape it up (so it can't short out if it somehow becomes energized again) and splice this new wire to the new socket.

Test & you're done!

Brake Lights Dull or Flickering - All Cars



Dull or Dim Brake Light Repair: If your car has a dull or dim brake light it is dangerous to you and other drivers. A dim brake light is a mystery to most people because the bulb is working, just not correctly. First confirm a new and correct brake light bulb has been installed. Next, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and have a helper depress the brake pedal. With the bulb installed touch a grounded test light to the outer bulb holder ring. If the bulb brightness changes the bulb socket ground has high resistance and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Flickering Brake Light Bulb Repair: A flickering brake light bulb can be very distracting and annoying. A brake light flickers because the power or ground is being obstructed momentarily. The most common cause for this condition is a loose fitting bulb socket. To check for this condition remove the brake light bulb in question, while a helper hold their foot on the brake pedal move the bulb around slightly in the socket. If the bulb flickers replace or repair the bulb socket as needed to regain proper brake light bulb operation. If the brake light bulb socket tests ok wiggle the brake light fuse and wiring at the brake light bulb socket, brake light switch and turn signal switch (American cars). If the brake light bulb flickers repair the component or wiring as needed.
Preferred Procedure: Always replace brake light bulbs with manufacturers recommend replacement bulbs. If you cannot find the correct replacement bulb part number consult an auto parts store for additional manufacturer information.
Common Problems
When brake light bulbs are replaced with the incorrect bulb causing no or dim brake light operation
If the brake lights stay on continuously it could mean the brake light switch has failed or an adjustment is needed.

2007 ml320 cdi left brake light will not come on


It is apparent that the wire between the current sensor that the computer monitors and the left brake light socket is open. Thus the computer knows the brake light is not working because it is not drawing current. If you have a wiring diagram, you can probably find the broken wire or bad connection. This may take some time. To get the left brake light working, you can jumper the left brake light socket to the right brake light socket. Warning, this may cause the computer to register the extra current on the right side as a short circuit and shut both off. If that happens you will have to forgo the left brake light until you get the open circuit corrected.

When i push on my brake my dash lights and park lights and tail lights come on at the same time


The likely cause is a short in one of the brake light sockets feeding power back into the parking lights. Check both brake light sockets for heat damage. If no damage, remove the brake light bulbs one at a time to see if the problem is in the bulb or how it is fitting into the socket. If that isn't the problem, check the wiring behind the socket for a short between the wires.

I have 2002 GMC van when my dashboard light switch is off and I hit my brakes they work fine, at night I have to turn the switch on and then when I hit my brakes my brake lights go out just the brake...


This sounds like a bad ground, remove the brake light sockets and remove the bulbs, take a look at the sockets and see if the socket is burt or melting, the most common problem is the socket goes bad and cant handle the brake and park lights at the same time , this is cause by a bad ground inside the socket, try cleaning the contacts in the socket and gentle prying them out to make a better contact to the bulb, also make sure there are no burnt marks on the contact terminals on the bulbs, good day

My 99 Mazda Brake lights stopped working


Check the ground to the brake light socket. I had a similar problem on a 98 626 and found the ground connector corroded in the socket.(it is on the outside of the socket between the metal insert and plastic housing) Pulled the remnants of the connector out far enough to solder a piece of wire onto it and then soldered it to the metal socket. Lights started functioning normally again. It seems that a bad ground on one socket affects every light in the circuit.

Burning up both brake light sockets


First, I'd check voltage at brake light socket terminals. voltage should be the same or slightly lower than running voltage recommendation of about 13.5. (check running volts at battery with engine running. check brake light volts again with engine running, using the bulb terminal and socket as power source and ground.) If voltage is excessively high, I'd look at the charging system to find out why. If volts at battery are normal but volts at socket are low, I'd suspect a bad ground in the lighting circut, causing excessive resistance & heat, causing sockets to melt. If this is the case, re-ground both light sockets to a good ground source such as the chassis. (when attaching, scrape off paint, rust etc to insure good connection.

Brake light work fine as longs as the head lights are off. Once you turn on the head lights the brakes with the exception of the center light on top.


Check the bulb sockets, it is common on these vans that water gets into the bulb sockets and shorts out the socket. You may need to replace the sockets to get them to work again. Also check the bulbs as these are dual filament bulbs, when your lights are off and you step on the brake it lights the parking lamp filament. However as the lights are on the brake lights may seem to not work as the parking lamps are already on.
