98 Ford Explorer Brake lights not working,top brake light does

On my 98 Ford Explorer my brake lights don't work, but my top brake light does when pressing the pedal. With no lights on my top brake light flickers like a strobe light all the time. Any input or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks SkipperDan

I had a similar problem like this with my 98 explorer once; neither brake lights worked and the top one stayed on very dimly at all times. It turns out both of my brake lights went bad at exactly the same time, which for some reason made the top light stay on. Felt like an idiot, but all I needed to do was change the bulbs.

Check the brake lights, if they don't work the system will not come out of part. if the brake lights are not working check the brake light switch connector, the wire breaks inside the connector and although the switch is connected there is not any actual electrical connection just plastic insulator over broken wires. The dealer sells repair connectors.

You may have a problem with the turn signal switch, as power comes out of that switch to power the brake lights, the high mounted brake light does not go through that switch.

Tail lights on my 1995 for explorer work but brake lights wont come on top bar brake light works but bottom brake lights on tail light dont work what could be the problem


your brake lights also go through your turn signal switch,also known as the multifunction switch. You will have to remove the cover around the lower part of steering column to gain access to the switch.

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.
