Most Ford Explorers sometimes have a electrical problem, you can replace bulb if that don''t work try to move the wires around, and find out if it is wiring if so either take it to get wire harness replaced or u can test new bulbs

The rear brake lights do not work. This includes the center brake light at the top of the rear hatch


although I have not experienced this problem in the exact vehicle you have, General Motors has had problems with the turn signal switches in many of their vehicles. The turn signals may still work properly, but the electric signal from the brake light switch passes through the turn signal switch (also called a combination switch) before it goes to the brake lights. I assume you have no problem shifting out of park or you would have mentioned it, which tells me the brake light switch is functioning properly. First thing to do, as always is to check for blown fuses. If it is a blown fuse, you then need to determine what caused the fuse to blow. If you have towed a trailer recently, it could have been faulty wiring in the trailer, or it could be faulty wiring in the trailer lighting harness of the Escalade.

I replaced light bulb and brake switch is there anything else that needs to be rp;acedto make brake light work


If you have already check fuses, and brake light's still don't work, it's going to be your turn signal switch, the brake light circit runs thought the brake light switch, if your car has a middle top brake light in back of rear window, most of the time that one will still work, and the turn signal will also work, but not the rear ones brake light's, when turn signal switch is bad, hope this was very helpful.

No brake lights on rear of truck. Turn signals work and brake light on top with cargo light works but not on rear of truck


Brake light on top works tells me the switch at the pedal is ok. Turn signals working tells me that the turn signal filaments have power.

I would try changing the bulbs and if that doesn't work have an electrical shop trace the wires and check for power on the brake light circuit in the back.

The brake light on the trunk of my car stays on all the time when the lights are turned on and the brake lights won't come on unless the key is turned in the ignition, what could the problem be?


brake lights only work with ignition on ,and the one in the back window of the hatch has a problem where the wires come out of the car body into hatch.their is a big thick rubber shroud with the wires in and i think they may have shorted out in here

Both bottom brake lights don't work


I believe the brake light on the hatch works off a different fuse then the taillight brakes. Double check to see if there is more then one fuse for brake lights. By pulling the fuse you changed and leaving it out, see if the hatch light comes on or not; this may answer at least one question if it is one of the fuses. If your running lights in those bulbs are coming on; you probably have a good ground, if not it may be a loose ground wire.
