Ware is 1999 ford explorer 3rd brake light fuse its not #13


Your high-mount brake lamp gets voltage from the same fuse as lower brake lites. Just not wired the same. If lower brakes lights work, it's not the fuse.

Why is the high mount stop light not working?


The same 15amp fuse for the regular brake lights powers the high mount light. If the regular brake lights work but the high mount does not, it could be the lamp monitor or a wiring problem.

I have a 51 plate ford focus estate,the rear brake lights dont work although the high level one does,i`ve checked fuse and bulbs etc. any clues


If bulbs are definetly ok you can look behind trim on the left side in the boot, which covers the space between the boot floor and the window, you are looking for a green/red wire in a connector. this is the power cable which supplies both rear side mounted brake lights. You should check for voltage at this wire when pedal depressed. If no voltage you would need to trace this back to where the wire is joined in the loom as it feeds off the wire which supplies the high mounted brake light and you have stated that this works. Would still double check bulbs first though if you did'nt replace them. Hope this helps.

Brake Light will not work? Cab brake light does.


The high mount stop light and the regular brake lights are actually on different circuits. The regular stop lights go through the turn signal switch which is known to go bad on older ford vehicles. Something to check into. Also be sure to check all the fuses.

LOW BEAMS NOT WORKING 2002 FORD FOCUS


Hi. i recommend a thorough inspection of the wiring harness and harness connectors that led to the actual headlights. use a volt meter to test the current flow to the connectors. pull the connectors from the back side of the headlights and test all cooper contacts inside the connectors. If the wire contacts all show voltage, this will confirm a switch malfunction. it should be replaced in this case.

Now, if one or more contacts on the wires harness fail to produce any voltage, this will confirm a faulty wiring harness. replace the wiring harness in this case.

Make sure the headlight switch is in the on position when testing the wires.

The high mount stop lamp not working while two brake lights stay on while driving.


There will be a switch on the the brake pedal. Gently move it back and forth. If the lights stay on this will have to be replaced. Then replace the third brake light bulb.

High and low mount brake lights


Could be a short but could also be a bad ground at one of the lights!

Left & right brake light not on


Could be the brake switch that is mounted to the brake pedal area. Check if you have voltage out from there when brakes are applied, there may be two leads one for the high mount and one for regular brake lights.
