2011 ford feista se brake light out on drivers side. Running light and blinker work. Have replaced bulb and socket with same results what do I do now?


Did you try the passenger side brake bulb in the driver side socket (maybe the new lamp is bad)??

If it works, then the problem is either a bad ground connection / wire at / between chassis and the shell of brake lamp socket, or bad 12 volt wire at / between the common passenger 12 volt brake light wire in the harness to the center contact on the brake lamp socket.

My suggestion is if the brake lamp wire is ONLY for brakes - not the directional too, simply add a new wire spliced into the passenger side brake light wire and extend it to the brake light wire closest to the new socket that you recently installed on the driver side. Disconnect the vehicle brake wire from the new socket and wire nut it off or tape it up (so it can't short out if it somehow becomes energized again) and splice this new wire to the new socket.

Test & you're done!

Make sure your dash lights are working. If not then the headlight switch needs to be replaced. If this is okay go to the back of the truck under the rear bumper on the driver's side and you should see a plug where the tail light harness plugs into the body wire harness. Check this carefully for corrosion ( green gunk) and broken wires. Over time this plug usually corrodes up and wires rot off. I always cut it out and spliced the wires together with heat shrink tubing and tape.

The light sockets ground to the box behind the lens so make sure the black wire has bare shiny metal to metal contact on both sides of the box. The sockets themselves could also be worn enough so as to not make proper contact. Also check the wire harness at the light for chaffing and bad insulation. If I had a nickel for every time I had to fix this....... I kept a roll of tape in the truck at all times.

If you still have nothing, then you will likely have to follow the body harness back to the fuse block looking for the same thing, chaffing or broken wires. You can remove it by undoing the 5/16 bolt in the center of the block and pulling off the left side. All wires to the back of the truck are on this plug.

If you still have nothing then check under the dash. Trace the wires from the brake light switch to the wires from the blinkers. They both use the same side of the bulb. Dark green and yellow if I remember right.

If you have the floor mounted dimmer switch, check the plug in for it very carefully for corrosion. I'm pretty sure your wires go through it too, not sure why. Hope this helps.

Break Light on Passenger Side not working.The running lights all work Fine. All the Blinkers work fine. It is just a break light on passenger side. I bought a new bulb thinking I could not see the broken...


Over time corrosion can accumulated and rust out a tail light socket and render it non-functioning. Yes it can be replaced and in your case for about $6.00. You can find these at most any auto parts store.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I need to check the engine error code on my 1992 Honda accord lx 2 door coupe but cannot find the connector ( which I have to jumper so that the engine light will flash the code). The repair manual says it...


It is a small, long blue plug with two wires, located above the passengers side kick panel among a bunch of other wires. If it has never been used, it will be taped up to that bunch of wires. Just remove the tape and pull the blue plug down and jumper it.

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion and the passenger side head lamp will not come on. The fog lights and driver side head lamp works but the passenger side will not work on bright or on dim, what could this be?


Hi. Since the headlight on the driver side is working then we dont have any problem with the fuse or relay. Check the wiring and the socket of the passenger headlight if it is intact to the bulb. If it is intact, then this could be a headlight problem. Time to replace the passenger headlight.
