Are you using a Motorcraft switch or aftermarket?
If the answer is aftermarket then I strongly suggest you use a genuine ford part.

My brake lights and turn signals and hazard lights are not working in my 1999 lincoln town car, does anyone know how to fix.


You must have disconnected something when you replaced the heater core. Did you undo any multi-way electrical connectors. Perhaps you blew a fuse?

Is there an adjustment for the stop light switch on a 99 GMC Yukon. I have replace it and my brake lights still do not work. Park lights work fine.


There is no adjustment. The park lights are on a different circuit than the brake lights.
Do you have a third brake light that works. Its also on a different circuit but works from the same switch. Do your turn signals work. They use the same filament as the brake lights.
Also, the brake light circuit goes through the multi function (turn signal) switch.

Since the brake lights and turn signal lights use the same filament in the bulbs, the brake light circuit will pass through the turn signal switch. When a turn signal is used it cancels out the brake light for that side.

Let me know if your third brake light and turn signals work in the rear.
Also, if youy have not already, check/change the bulbs. The type of sockets those lights are in also get burned so look at them well.

I replace the brake switch on the car bt the brake lights still dont come on bt the park and signal ligjts work what cn this issue b i even chng the fuse


the first thing is to test for power at the brake switch you put in, go to the connector of the switch and with a test light check for power, there should be power on one wire and when brake applied power should flow through switch and out to the other wire, if theres no power at switch then check the fuse,another thing is are the brake light bulbs good, i have seen both lights blow at the same time, maybe check the bulbs first. good day.
