You have a short circuit on your wires probably inside your steering column

    usually when you have a short in your wires they get burnt or they melt

    see if there is any abnormalities maybe they rub against each other

Take your father down to the local pub and leave him there then take the car to an accredited auto electrician to have it fixed NO honestly this is the best idea as it will cost less eventually to have it fixed professionally

Brake Lights don't work on the back of our 2003 Ford Windstar


Did you actually check the brake light switch for power in and out ?
There are two different fuses, one for each side. And the circuit includes the turn signal switch.
The third brake light bypasses the turn signals.

How do i fix the brake lights on my mercury sable. all the other lights work fine


Does your car have the `lamp out'indicator system? It's more complicated.
My manual shows fuse #28 , a 15 amp fuse powers the brake bulbs.Is this the one you changed?
A bulb can be out for a long time and you don't notice it,then the other burns out and you think they both went out at the same time,but they might not have,see?
So check the bulbs and make sure you got that brake switch installed correctly. don-ohio (:^)

2004 Pontiac Montana Brake Lights, Pwr Window and Cruise all Quit


The same thing happened to my 2002 Montana minus the power window problem.

The brake lights and the cruise control are somehow tied in together.

I went to the scrapyard and ripped off a couple circuit boards from an old Lumina ($25 for the set) since there were no Montanas on site.

The problem seems to be when one brakelight goes the bulk of the current transfers to the other light and will blow it too.

Anyways you said you tried replacing the circuit boards and it did not work so sorry I could not be of more help.

2002 Montana, both brake lights stopped working but the light bar on the hatch is still good. Any suggestions


The working light bar reveals that the brake switch is working, and the fuse is good. Check the bulbs, they are probably burned out. If not the bulbs, then the wire that goes from one side to the other may have failed.

How to change fog light bulb


Open the engine hood and you'll see there is a plastic housing holding the head light ans side light to the frame. There are two wing nuts and one wing bolt holding it all together. Remove those and pull the headlight and side light housings out from the frame. You'll be able to access all of the lights now.
