SOURCE: left rear turn signal and brake light dont work

You have a broken wire to the turn/brake light portion of the light as they use the same wire. Or where the plug goes into the light assy could be bad. Torsion mount lights are horrible and you should think about replacing with a universal light that you can wire direct.

SOURCE: Brake lights dont work, Turn Signals all goofy

First thing i would do is chg. the break light switch, and make sure to chk. all grounds around tailights, sometimes if there is a ground problem it will travel back thru the hot wire to get a ground, witch in turn makes everything go wackey.

SOURCE: REAR TURN SIGNALS WORK BUT MY BRAKE LIGHTS DONT

Replace the turn signal switch. If you want to prove this have someone stand behind the car with your foot on the brake. Then wiggle the turn signal lever. The brake lights should blink. This is a real common problem with W body. I have replaced two on my cutlass plus tons more at my shop.

SOURCE: TURN SIGNAL, BRAKE & HAZARD LIGHTS

No Turn Signal Operation (blinker)The turn signal lights in your car are a basic electrical system that controls the front and rear blinker lights to alert the intended direction of the vehicle. We have listed some of the most common problems and repair troubleshooting tips below:
Troubleshooting Procedure
To start troubleshooting this problem:

  • Turn the key to the on position (do not start engine)
  • Inspect the system fuse located in the fuse panel and replace if needed. If you cannot find the location of the blinker fuse consult your owner's manual or an online repair manual
  • When a blinker flasher fails it can cause blinker lights to say on, not blink, or not go on at all. To test the blinker system flasher, remove the flasher unit and insert a jumper wire between the two terminals. If blinker stays on in both directions without blinking, replace the flasher. If you cannot find the location of the blinker flasher consult your owners manual or an online repair manual.

SOURCE: 2001 ford focus brakelights not working

first chk fuses, of course,
Second chk bulbs on both sides. Yes it has happened
Third check the condition of your turn signal control. If it binds or is sloppy. Have it evaluated. The brake and 4 way circuits run through the turn signal control.

Rear brale lights not functional. center brake lght functional


Ok, trailer lights are basically separate circuits from the regular stop lights and same with the center brake light.

There is a brake light fuse located in the fusebox next to the battery in the engine compartment. Use a 12v test light to see if it becomes hot both sides of the fuse, when the brake is depressed.

12v Test lights can be bought at a auto parts store for less than $15. Do not get a "continuity light" as these are different. A test light, lights when you touch a terminal and voltage is present using the alligator clip attached to a good ground

Notice that the center stop light does not go through this fuse in the diagram.

I have included a wiring diagram for your vehicle.

If you find the brake light fuse blown, and it repeatedly blows, you have a short to ground from the fuse to the brake lights somewhere. First step is to check the brake lights for a short. and work your way back to the fuse.

How do i remove the sensor for the rear tailgate?


1) Locate and remove sensor.
The sensor is located under the drivers tail light. Unclip it from the body and then unplug it.

2) Bypass the tail light circuit.
Connect the tail light signal wire (Green) to the tail light wire (Green w/ Red Stripe). I recommend using wire tap in squeeze connectors that way you dont have to cut any wires.

3) Bypass the brake light circuit.
Connect the brakelight signal wire (Green w/ White Stripe) to the brake light wire (Red w/ Blue stripe) and the the 3rd brake light wire (Red w/ White Stripe). Again all three of these wires are to be connected together.

4) Throw away your broken Tail Lamp Failure Sensor
Do not plug your sensor back in. Doing so will cause the annoying orange lamp failure warning light on your dash to stay on. Leave it unplugged ant the light will stay off.

5) Test your work
Turn on your lights and make sure your tail lights work properly. Have a friend step on the brake pedal, and make sure your brake lights work properly as well. Dont forget to check the Third brake light.

Rear brakelights and turn signals do not work


The turn signal and brake lights are controlled by the turn signal switch.
You did not mention parking lights so I will assume they work.

Could be a faulty turn signal switch or a wiring problem between the dash and the rear of the van.
Do the hazard flashers work on all four corners ?

My rear side brakelights dont work but the center one up top does


The reason that your side brakes do not work is because your brake light switch has gone out. Your particular brake light switch has two lines going out of it which is what makes it so you still have your center brake light. The switch is located on the pedal and is fairly easy and cheap to replace. Replace it and your brake lights will be back to normal. Let me know if you have any further questions about this. Thanks for using FixYa!

Brake lights work intermittently


It sounds like a wiring fault - an earthing problem. Have a look around the lights/inside the lights themselves.. rear and front lights, brake lights, etc ...check the wires for corrosion/splitting. In particular check any black earth leads where they attach to an earthing point.
