Its possable there is one of those lights turned in the wrong way or to much or shorting out in the socket crossing .
maybe no promises.but a good check for sure.
also check for the wrong bulb types.

hope this helps
thank you

1999 ford expedition no brake light no turn signal


Sounds like your multifunction control switch needs replaced. Its location is on your steering colum.

2001 chevy tracker ,what would cause the fuse for brake lights to blow? already tried unplugging wire harness to back of car at fuse block.


This all depends, if the fuse blows as soon as you put it in without stepping on the brake pedal then theres a dead short in the fuse box or the power wire going to the brake switch is shorting out, this 15amp fuse runs from the fuseox to brake light switch, so the short is between that but if it blow with brake pedal pushed then you said you dissconnect the rear brake light at fuse box and fuse still blows so the next step inwhich power is feed from this fuse is the following and you will need to unhook these components one at a time until short is gone. the next location is the the abs brake control module which is by the master cylinder area after that it goes to the cruise contorl servo also under the hood, then it goes to the shifter release solenoid which is very common problem, the wires melt or short out in that area, and next it goes to computer which i dont think is the problem and from there it feeds the rear lights and third brake light. hope this helps, good day.

Ignition switch is slipinng car will not lock steering colum or release from drive


Ok lest star by checking your brake ligths, are they working? , check your fuses if theryre not, if your fuse is bad also check all your bulbs if one is shorted to ground will blow the fuse again, if all bulbs are in good shape, then check the brake lite indicator box(located in left upper side off trunk is a litlle square box, yellow most of times) take a litle screw driver and open it if is burmed must be replace, hope this help .

When I turn on signals,fuse blows there is a wire in the steering column that is shorting out.where is it?


You could try replacing the turn siginal unit in side the fuse box but more likely its the siginal switch it self

Blowing brake light fuses everytime you hit brakes.


Sounds like a short in the steering colume, maybe the turn signal switch, or a wire that the insulation got wore thru in the colume. Unhook break light switch and try the turn signals and hazards again and see what happens, maybe you can isolate it that way. Also if you havent done it already chk.the sockets in tailight housing for corrosion and bear wires, or anything, even ground wires.

Tail lights and brake lights not working - not fuse - what can it be?


Brake light switch, located on upper brake pedal should be checked, that is most likely your brake light issue, but U say tail lights aren't working, but running lights do, tail lights and running lights I would consider to be the same, so can u clarify that for me? Let me know how the u do w/ brake light switch, and if u have issue w/ tail lights?

I have no brake lights, no hazzard lights, but the signal lights work. Wiring has no breaks, but the fuse blows as soon as the brake or hazzard lights are used.


there is a short somewhere-try disconnecting all components on that circuit,put new fuse and try using one,if the fuse still blows,problem is in wiring or switch unit,if not,plug one component in and a time until the fuse blow,replace component
accordingly.make sure there is no slightly shaved wire touching the chassis,this will show when all if d/c'ed and fuse still blows,good luck
