Radio, Brake Light, Interior lights, And Wont Shift Out Of Park.


This problem sounds like you dislodged the switch on the brake pedal lever. You need the signal to unlock the vehicle from Park. You will probably find that the Brake lights do not work when you press the brake pedal.

Now if the switch is good, you probably broke the fuse feeding power to the switch. You can get a wiring diagram online by running a Websearch or going to Autozone.com and registering your car. This site has a HELP section at the bottom of the page and you would need to toggle between free and pay info.

Escort ghia st 1994 problem no brake lights working but bulbs and fuses ok


There could be two reasons for this problem of yours.
1. The connections have gone off from the brake pedal switch.
2. The brake pedal switch itself if out.
Open the hood and locate the switch. At the out of the switch connect a wire from the positive of the battery. The brake lights should come on. If the do then the connection is fine and the switch is faulty.
If the lights dont come on then the switch MAY be OK and the wiring faulty (unlikely as from here the wiring has to go to two sides and both could not have gone off simultaneously).
So I feel it is the switch that is at fault and should be changed if confirmed so.
To check the switch connect the same wire to the in of the switch and press the brake pedal. if the lights come on then the switch is OK else not.

Tail lights stay on


Check the brake light switch attached to the top of the brake pedal. (It will be up under the dash and might be hard to see.) This switch activates the brake lights when the brake pedal moves or allows to move a button on the switch. If the switch gets out of position, the brake lights might not operate properly.

Another possibility is that the switch is bad.

Sounds like your brake light switch has gone bad. It is located on your brake pedal and is easy to change and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

My tail lights dont work, its not a fuse, my blinkers and reverse lights work, its just my running lights and my brake lights that dont, any suggestions?


check the wire harness that runs from inside the trunk on the drivers side follow it down to the tail light and make shure the wires are not damaged or unplugged remove cover on the drivers side inspect the bulbs the holders and the wires and dont forgt to retighten all grounds that you find on your travels this should get the rear tail lights working also check the brake pedal switch up on the metal part of the brake pedal arm follow it up tp the brake pedal switch and acuate the switch by hand and check the wire voltage coming in and going out when pressing the brake pedal ok give this a shot
