The problem is more than likely the b.c.m.(body control module)this located behind the passenger glove box.

ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS WITH TURN SIGNALS,EMERGENCY FLASHERS,PARKING LIGHTS


this car have DRL? day light running lamps?>? option
or manditory in canada. do tell !

so the fuses blew again, and you didnt look?
id fix either park/ hazzards.first
both work with key in pockets for EMERANGACY uses, even
when 100 miles from car, keys in pocket, by DESIGN. (all cars)
so due to that fact its a very simple system.
but in 2007, they makers do all they can to make it more complex
than ever necessary, (saves money with copper)
the 2 features are hot all the time, that means they wire to the
battery directly with ONLY a fuse, to stop fires.
so id bet it blew the fuse (got trailer wiring hacks in back>?) collision damage not fixed right>?
do you have the factory trailer option?????

park seems best., easier
it has 2 fuses to the rear.
the PARK relay closes, and powers the fuse and then lamps.
so both cant blow. left and right are Fuse 7 and 9
the BCM , (body brain puter) energizes the park relay
so seems its not.
my guess is the BCM has lost power.

in the dealer they can scan for BCM errors. and say fast what is wrong.

the list for PARK dead.
1. Ineffective or missing relay. 1. Test and replace park lamp relay if required. 2. Ineffective control circuit. 2. Test and repair open park lamp relay control circuit if required. 3. Ineffective switch. 3. Test and replace multi-function switch if required. 4. Ineffective BCM inputs or outputs. 4. Use a diagnostic scan tool to test the BCM inputs and outputs. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information.
here is my list
all park lamps burned out, (no way) but had it happen in 1980.....ask how? (alternator went nuts to 30v)
relay park missing or bad. (pray)
the park switch( in combo-mult- section switch is bad) nah.
The combo failed to tell BCM of this state change (comm fails)
the BCM failed to hear the command.
the BCM is bad or lost power (fuses)
the BCM failed to close the park relay.

the BCM has 3 power fuses. fues 34 is hot all time, id bet that fuse
allows the BCM to turn on parks, at any time.
others are key power, fuse 22, and 13. to BCM

the back unlocks doors, and does so via FOBs. car locked and parked and no key in ignition, so again, fuse 34 rears ugly head

i hang hat on 34, but got tired, if reading 50 pages of power distrabution and comms.
it is very complex car, and one of the first cars to do this....

I HAVE PAYED $20 TO GET SOME HELP WITH MY DASH LIGHTS NOT WORKING. ALSO MY PARKING LIGHTS WON;T COME ON. ALSO MY FOG LIGHTS WON;T COME ON. I HAVE ASK YOU SEVERAL TIMES TO HELP ME. IT MAKES ME THINK. YOU...


Sorry about that, I must have missed your post or something. The park lights and the panel lights are usually on the same fuse and therefore on the same switch. The fog lamps are on a separate fuse and switch/circuit, although the is nothing to prevent either of the fuses going at the same time. Look at the fuses first, if they are blown replace them, but if they blow again some more investigation will be required. The parking lamps/panel lights are unlikely to have a relay, but the fog lights may.

The fuse must be in the main fuse box. The position and function of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown one. To ease your search the fuses you are looking for should be around 15 to 20 amps.

My 2001 ford focus is stuck in park, stepping on brake, does not release it from park, and brake lights are not working.........


Without the brake lights working the shift interlock can't release. Turn the key just off the "locked" position and you should be able to shift to neutral and start the engine then shift to drive or reverse. Just don't shift back into park until you are parking the car to leave it.

Abs light comes on & stays on. no brake one time,replaced master cylinder@Midas. light still comes on & brake pedal somestimes goes close to floor . kind of spongy


Your brake pedal needs adjusting! And your brakes need to be replaced! Did the people @ midas look for any air bubbles while they replaced the Master cylinder? Did they get them out? Did they even look at the brakes? All of them?

Fuses keep blowing


Re check the connections, it sounds like you have a short in the Wireing harness. If you park you car where there are lot's of small animals link mice, squirels ect. They come out this time of the season looking for things to chew on and make a home out of. 
Sorry for the shot in the dark but it does happen and if you do park your car where there are lots of small animals. Fabric sofener's in the car like under the seat keep's them away.
Good luck and hop this helps
