SOURCE: does the MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH control the rear brake lights?

You need to replace the multifunction switch,the wireing to the brake lights in the rear are shared by this switch and the brake light switch and because the third one is working then it is unlikely the brake switch is defective.

SOURCE: 1992 Ford Ranger Turn signal/Hazard light issue

Can you just check to make sure the ignition key switch is not staying over to far and not backing off when you try to start it. I had a truck that did that and it messed up my turn signals until I brought the key switch back a little after starting it. Just a simple idea. Be kind with your rating for me. Raz

It is isolated to one switch inside one of the doors. Try spraying wd-40 in each door latch area to see if this free's up the switch. If not, you have to use a volt meter and see which one is using constant voltage.

Sounds like a crossed wiring connection somewhere, if the four-way flashers are turning on the high-beam indicator. Check all the connectors in the associated wiring harnesses for the instrument panel. Good luck!

Why won't the headlights turn on?

This vehicle has problems with the multifunction switch AND the hazard light switch. Try turning the switch on and move the hazard light switch back and forth up and down. If that's not it, I'd look at replacing the MFS. There is a TSB on the MFS, but typically for the brake lights not working. Look in this to go over the steps to take to diagnose also.

High mount brake light stays on after ignition is turned off

The only suggestion I can make is that the turn signal switch is defective and is shorted internally. If you disconnect the turn signal/multifunction switch under the dash do the lights go out in question?

Back brake light stay on, replaced brake switch same problem.Truck has over drive and cruies control If you take switch out of circuit the brake lights stay on the same with the turn/hazard flasher.

Your brake lights and your turn signals go through the multifunction (turn signal) switch. It is common for these switches to short internally. Partial disassembly of the steering column is required to replace it. The airbag stsyem must be disabled, then the airbag removed from the steering wheel. Then the steering wheel must be removed to access the screw in the front of the switch assembly. The rest is pretty easy... a few screws holing the lower cover of the dash, the shroud around the steering column and a few connectors to deal with. (see pictures of switch assembly below)
There are two types of these switches available for 2000 S-10. With cruise control and without cruise control. The one WITHOUT cruise control is much more expensive!

Driver seat belt worn half way thru .engine just started to idle high. door lights stay on,it is a 1992 4 dr hatch back w/70000 mi

I'm sorry, what is your question?

Your seat belt can be replaced - the seat belt has nothing to do with the engine idle, or the door light. The light stays on because the door switch needs adjustment or replaced or perhaps it has beenturned on by the light interior light switch that controls the dash board lights.

70,000 is not a lot of miles.

I suggest you have your vehicle tuned up aat a garage to fix the high idle and assure economical operation. That same mechanic may be able to advise you on the light and how to replace the seat belt. Your car may be running fast because of the cold weather to warm itself up. I dont know where you live.

Fog lights on all the time

Sounds like your multifunction switch (i.e. the stalk that has the fog light switch) has burned out. This is a fairly common problem and the multifunction switch needs to be replaced.

The part (as I recall) costs < $100 (about 80, I think) and takes less than half an hour to replace.

Fog lights came on; can't turn them off

1.At first take out the foglight's fuse before you battery is dead. (Fog lights stays "ON" even you leave the car).

2.You must replace the Multifunction control switch =(

Here is the photo of problem:

Fog lights are connected to pin 13,14.
Fog light switch is "B". Because the current is many Amps, contact surfaces are heating up.
After that the contact opening "C" is melting (made of plastic) so the fog light stays "ON".

Fog lights staying on

1st most newer car cars have a timer delay that helps light the area you are in for a couple of seconds. You may have had the knob turned all the way up on the turn signal switch. The same thing will happened if this switch is turned all the way up, the interrior light will stay on. Turn the lights on with the switch and see if the fog lights come on, do this without the car running.Trun the lights off,see if the fog lights stay on then go out after a while.if so you have a delay on the fog lights or relay. You may need to replace the relay only. Part $ 15 trace fog light wiring to relay usually under hood away from water sources.......runjoe
