Most likely you don't need a new break light switch, its just out of ajustment, some have threads where you can screw it in and out in the bracket that holds it, thats for ajustment, it should be just above the break peddel under dash it will have a electrical plug going to it, just unplug it to move it back and forth for ajustment, it works off the break peddel arm, it has a plunger that goes in and out thats what activates the break lights.

I installed a new turn signal switch in the steering column, and it fixed my brake light problem. Evidentally the turn signal and brake light wires use the same plug wires. It cost about $70. I would suggest doing this.

SOURCE: 2001 ford sports trac brake lights not working ,

This may be a simple fix, where the wheel jack or washer bottle is located in the back behind the panel, there should be connectors for the rear lights, it is possible that the plug has been dislodged, remove the panels and check the plug connections. Good luck.

Fix brake lights on a 2000 gmc jimmy

seen this often on different models .look up under the bumper drivers side .you will see a hole in the fender panel the wires to the brake lights and tail lights run through here . grab the wires and you will probley see the green and or the brown wire is rotton and perhaps broken or the insulation is cracked and corroded .you will have to cut the wire clean it up and put a new connector and use shrink tube to protect the connection from getting wet .

No turn signals, 1 driver brake light bad, ABS light on. 2002/2003 CVPI

Sounds like you have 'ground' issues. Apply the brakes using a broom stick or more apropriate tool so that the brake lights are activated. Then go to the brake light that is not bright enough. using a test-light with a sharp pointed probe, poke the ground wire close to the bulb (usually a black wire) make sure the test light is attached to a grounded bolt. if the brake light gets brighter with ground added, you need a new ground wire. Splice it in to the existing wire & attach it to a bolt. Lights should work better with proper ground. (each bulb has a positive post & neg. post, don't add ground to the side with power coming through it from Battery (+)(red light on test light) - probe wires FIRST with test light to find (+) POS. Hot wire, and leave that one alone.

I have a 2000 ford focus SE AND driver side brake light will not work...have only tried changing bulbs

Could be in your signal switch..Get someone to watch your brake lights,,and apply your brakes,,and move your blinker switch around and see if the brake light tries to come on..The brake light circuit runs through the switch...Even if the blinkers work it can have a short in the switch,...Then if that dont work,,take a test light and see if your getting voltage to the light...If so wiggle the wires on the light socket and see if there is a bad connection

No brake lights

have you checked the fuses for the brake lights it is in the fuse panel under the dash on the driver`s side.if it is good and only the brake lights don`t work(signals work)then the nest step is to check the brake switch.this is under the dash at the base of the brake pedal and above.when you push on the brake pedal it pushes against or moves the switch enough to close the should see a 2 wire plug connected to the switch.there should be power on one side of the switch at all times and when you push on the pedal there should be power on both wire supplies power to the switch and the other supplies power to the brake lights.if you don`t have power on both wires then you have a bad switch.NOTE fords have a problem with the wires breaking at the switch.

What fuse is it for taillights and dome light 2000 ford focus

Running lights (left side): Fuse #47 -- Running lights (right side): Fuse #48 -- Brake lights: Fuse #54. Fuse panel is on the lower left side (underneath) the dashboard. NOTE: If it is your brake lights that are not working and fuse # 54 looks okay, check the brake light switch, it may have gone bad. Dome light is fuse #46 or #47 depending on model.

My brake lights won't work in my AU Ford Falcon

On vehicles that use a common bulb for signal and brake lights the brake light circuit runs through the signal switch. A problem in the signal switch can cause the brake lights not to function. Also check your Emergency flasher switch. Hope this helps.

2000 ford focus rear driving lights

Had this problem myself. Try replacing your brake light switch, they are not real expensive and can be changed in a matter of mineuts. It is located by following your brake pedal all the way up to the top, when you get there , there id a switch that when you push down on the brake it releases the button to put you brake lights on and when you take your foot off the brake itallows the switch to go back.
