Headlights wont come on but all other lights do

Dimmer switch is on the floor, right? remove dimmer switch and replace with new one. Probably all rusted and corroded inside, you may have blow the brake switch when you hit the dimmer, also check the wiring to both the dimmer and the brake switches.

Problems: Ford focus 2007 model 1. My brake lights stays on while driving without hitting on the breaks, 2. Car wont switch off after removing the key until I let go of the brakes then the car switches...

It sounds like you have a voltage feedback that is providing power to your shift interlock solenoid and your brake lamps are being fed by your daytime running lamp circuits. Check the bulb and make sure that:
1. It is the CORRECT bulb for the vehicle
2. The bulb is installed correctly
3. The bulb SOCKET is not damaged or shorted
4. The replacement bulb is not defective and shorting internally (NEW and GOOD are NOT the same thing)

My brake light wont come on when i brake. kinda scary bc someone can hit me

1. Are ALL of your brake lights out? Then it could be a fuse or a loose connection. If only one of your lights are out, then you need a replacement bulb. Please explain in more detail and we'll go from there.

Brake lights dont work

you need to get a test light and check every fuse again and go to the brake lamp switch and see if it is getting power to it and if it is you need to see if the power is coming out on a differant wire on the same switch if not you need another switch if you have power coming out of switch when you hit the brake pedal you will have to follow wires till you see where you are loosing power.

You may have to adjust the brake light switch, there should be some adjustment nuts on the threded shaft that will let you adjust it to work properly. Hope this helps.
