I have a 1967 f-100 pickup and my back blinkers work and so do my parking lights but my brake lights won't I've changed the switch and that didnt help I can't understand why they won't because I've heard that they run off of the same wires as the blinkers I've tried bridging it and that didnt work so I'm almost ready to just put it in the shop am have them fix it but that will be expensive any suggestions

They may run off the same wires, but not the same fuse. They also depend on a relay and have to go through the turn switch. Is there power at the brake switch? That power turns on the relay. What I do is pull out the brake relay and interrogate the relay socket with a volt/ohmmeter. Are you up for that?

SOURCE: mustang brake lights dont work

this car has a brake light switch on the pedal check for power in and out. if in and not out change switch. also I believe their is a relay under the hood . then check to see if the multifunction and hazard switch control brake lights i cant remember if they do like gm's but i am also almost sure they do the multifunction is your turn signal wiper arm that goes into steering wheel . after you check the brake switch and relay have some one jiggle the hazard and multi while pressing the brakes see if they come on. you can call ford and ask them about the multi and hazard .

Check the brake control switch situated just above the break pedal arm under the dashboard. Could be a wire loose or unplugged or the switch itself could be faulty

Parking brake light won't go off after releasing brake lever


Park brake lights normally operate by a small plunger type switch the turns off when the level or pedal is placed in the off position. Over time the spring in the lever weakens and placing the lever in the off position no longer depresses the switch. The switch can sometimes be adjusted to make better contact, or the switch bracket can be bent so the lever and switch make proper contact.

My brakelights are both not working after changing the bulbs, changing brake pedal sensor, and checking all fuses. The running lights, parking lights, turn signals, hazard lights all work. Please give me...


Probably the blinker switch ..The brake light circuit runs through the blinker switch..Let somebody look and while you have the brakes applied move the switch around and see if the lights come on

Brake lights not working


Not even the third eye? then the fuse is blown or all the bulbs are out or the brake light switch on the break pedal is bad wire off or broken( it breaks right off the plug then crosses then blows the fuse as the loose broken wire hits the brake pedel arm. Test the break pedal switch first if the third eye doesesnt work either. no power with a test light the fuse is blown or the wire broke ( the wire goes straight to the switch from the fuse and doesnt go anywhere elese. the other wire if hot should light the lights. Most of these wont come out of park without this working as the wire also turns on the park release but some Fords the park release sticks released and Ford made em that way as they didnt like the brake to get out of park law. If the brake lights dont work maybe you ought not be able to get out of park anyway till its fixed. the switch is hot on both wires with the switch pused down and the lights dont still work go after the third eye first if the bulbs are bad change em before you do the rest of the work. on cars with yellow turn signals the brake lights all work on the same wire but red only use three wires, but you didnt say the turn signales didnt work if they work and they are red you r on the way to the turn signal switch as the brake switch powers the turn switch with power then it splites it fot the two lights and adifferent switch circuit for the front hooks them all together for hazard. yellow turns in the back or even separt bulbs can mean blown bulbs ther too its old enought for all the bulbs to fail and the runs still work.
