The "multifunction switch" is bad. In the old days, this was called the turn signal switch. The brake light wiring for the two non functioning lights goes through this switch. Have your mechanic check the wiring into and out of this switch. It's in the steering column.

How to change a brake light switch on a 98 mercury mystique


brake light switch location are usually located above the brake pedal, you have to visually look and see. If you follow the the brake pedal upward youll come across a switch possibly and when you depress the brake pedal you can see that the switch is no longer touching the brake pedal. If thats the location of the switch then you can see that youll have to disconnect it from the wires connected to this switch and there should be a connector that you can unplug, Most of them are very easy to disconnect. once disconnected you may remove the switch and replace. I hope this has helped

Sounds like loose wiring to either the earth or Postive connection in the main running wiring. rechk all connections particuarly yr pull off/on connections.

No brake lights on both sides but all other lights work , replaced bulbs


On these models if the lights won't work you won't be able to shift out of park because its all incorporated into the safety device for you locking mechanism in the shifter console. Take apart each light clean every contact and apply electrical gel to each one then try it.

1998 Mystique brake lights don't work while the window brake light does work.


Try a continuity test, not sure where to find the electrical scheme but if you obtain it, use a tester or borrow one to test the continuity of the wires of both taillights, could be simple as a cut wire.

Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.


Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.
