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.

Just had same issue with my 01 sport trac. Just purchased truck an never noticed until several days later had no tail lights. Brake light on cab worked not on bed. After days of head banging an scratching I realized when steering wheel was tilted up had lights down no lights tore into steering column was an easy easy fix. The clip tht holds harness in place on top of cold was broke an plug had slid out a bit so pushed it in good an tight zip tied it for temp fix vuala tail lights! Wanted to share so if anyone else has issue they didn't have to spend days scratching their head!

Have a ford explorer sport trac and rear brake lights don't come on I replaced the bulbs and checked all fuses all good could it be the brake switch if the third brake in the center comes on ?


There is a short in the steering column. Put the tilt steering all the way up. You may even have to push it up. This will close the short. Open the cover and you will see the wire has become loose in the harness.

2001 ford explorer sport trac.When applying the brakes in a hurry they act as though the rear brakes arent working.The anti lock seems to be ok how about the proportional valve is there some reset button ?


have you replaced front brakes 3+ times? normal wear is 3 front to 1 rear. plus ratio of braking for MOST veh's is 70% front vs 30% rear. rears could simply have worn out!

2001 ford explorer sport trac


Just found the answer on another site. Sure enough went out removed the 3 philips head screws in the steering column opened it up and walla a wire connection had pulled itself free. When my son uses my truck he always uses the tilt steering, when I get in I have to readjust it. because of this the wire connection pulled itself out. I simply pushed it back in an blinker and brake light are now working. My husband is now trying to figure a way to secure the wire connection so it doesn't pull itself out again. Hope this helps others, either by saving the cost of a dealership or machanic or from getting rear ended.
