I'm thinking that you should be looking at your brake light switch,

It's located right behind the brake pedal mounted high on the brale arm

Only one window works. when I plug in master switch it blows fuse 23 to blower motor 98 mercury mystique

If you are mechanically inclined, disconnect the harness to the blower motor. Install the fuse and see if it blows. If not, your problem is from the switch to the motor. You may have a wiring problem, or a bad motor. With blower motor disconnected, check power to the harness, both the power side and the ground side. This will eliminate the switch as the problem.

98 mercury mystique oroblems

Two different problems. Check the linkage between the ignition switch and the transmission interlock. Also check for a brake-light interlock - if the brake lights don't light when you press the brake pedal, the brake light switch may be the cause of that problem.

As to the fan... are we talking about the heater/AC fan or the radiator cooling fan? Either may be as simple as a blown fuse - check the fuseblock under the hood.

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

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.

I had a similar problem with my 98 mystique when i bought it used. I had no overdrive and was lucky to find a honest transmission shop that found the problem. In my case the overdrive was unplugged. They plugged it back in,cleared the computer and changed my tranny fluid and i was good to go. You should be revving about 2400rpm at 65mph. The other thing you can check is to make sure that the wires that go from the overdrive button are not broken off or coroded.
