When the lights are on, passenger side brake light does no work. Also when the right directional is engaged, brake light on passenger side does not work


Hello David, It sounds like a ground problem to me? Check the grounds or try a redundant ground wire.
I don't know year--make--model, so I can't post a wiring diagram?

2011 ford feista se brake light out on drivers side. Running light and blinker work. Have replaced bulb and socket with same results what do I do now?


Did you try the passenger side brake bulb in the driver side socket (maybe the new lamp is bad)??

If it works, then the problem is either a bad ground connection / wire at / between chassis and the shell of brake lamp socket, or bad 12 volt wire at / between the common passenger 12 volt brake light wire in the harness to the center contact on the brake lamp socket.

My suggestion is if the brake lamp wire is ONLY for brakes - not the directional too, simply add a new wire spliced into the passenger side brake light wire and extend it to the brake light wire closest to the new socket that you recently installed on the driver side. Disconnect the vehicle brake wire from the new socket and wire nut it off or tape it up (so it can't short out if it somehow becomes energized again) and splice this new wire to the new socket.

Test & you're done!

Passenger side brake light out


If the fuse is alright (brake and running lights) and the left side brake light works I would suspect a bad ground or socket.
You could use a test light to check if you have power to the bulb. Do this while the brake pedal is depressed. First remove the bulb in question ( look at the left lens a note position of brake light) just mirror the position. With bulb removed ground one end of the test light to a bare metal body part or ground wire. Use the needle end to test the exposed contacts. You will see then once you remove the bulb. One contact is battery + and the other is the ground. While the one lead is properly grounded if the probe touches the contact and the light 'lights' that means its getting power. If either of the contacts fails to light the test light you have a fuse or wire problem.

Through steps like above you can also check the ground by hooking the probe back wards. Connect the clip to the Bat. + and probe the other contact to make sure the ground is working.

The passenger side brake light, and passenger side (front and back) window control doesn't work is it a fuse?


Well, the short answer is no.
The lights and windows are are different fuses.
There's a slight chance you have a problem with a ground wire on that side, but I doubt the two problems are related.
I would check the light for power and ground, and look at the window switches for power and ground. The windows are powered thru the driver switch on most cars.

My fog lights won't work but switch shows power, however when hit the switch can hear the relay on passenger side fuse box can hear it click does that need replaced


Hi, if the light on the switch is coming on, the relay is fine. Unless both bulbs are burned out, the problem is in the wiring between the relay and the lights. I recommend you trace the wiring backward from the passenger side fog light to the power box under the hood to see if the wire is cut. There should be two wires coming out of the power box--one going to each fog light. If the wiring looks good, it is also possible that the ground to the lights is bad.

The brake lights do not work, I have replaced all bulbs and fuse for the brakes on the dash passenger side panel. are there any more fuses?


Check the brake light switch located on the brake pedal arm under the dash. It could be stuck, loose, or needs to be replaced. Also, check for a brake light relay. Could also be a loose ground wire in the trunk close to the tail lights.

Bulb has been replaced...tail light and brake lights work on driver's side but only tail lights work on passenger side. when the brake is pushed that light goes completely out.


It sounds like a ground wire problem. Try to trace the ground wire from the passenger side. Look for a broken wire or a corroded ground connection.

My daytime running lights dont work and my passenger side light is dim, with high beams it is even dimmer. What could be my problem?


The running lights may be a bad relay or bulbs, if the bulbs are good then check the connections, make sure the socket is not burnt, if you remove the bulb the socket shouldnt have any melted area in it, also take a good look at the ground wire coming off the sockets, a quick test is to connect a wire to a good metal ground and then connect it to ground wire to a bulb socket if light brightings then you know its a bad ground, replace the ground wire or located the bad ground. hope this helps.

More than likely you have a bad ground. Under the rear of the vehicle, behind the rear bumper there will be a few wires running to a bolt in the frame (left side i think) Check that no wires are loose or boken. Also if you have a trailer wiring harness, check to see if it has not been damaged. Let me know if this helps :)
