Brake lights stopped working 1998 mustang

My daughter has a 1998 ford mustang coup, and the brake lights just stopped working, the tail lights are all good. Is there a fuse for the brake lights. If yes, where's it located at on the 1998 mustang, is it under the dash?????

    ATTENTION!!! if brake light wont come on and the mustang wont gear out of park, i just found out its a broken wire under the drivers seat where the peddles are. My mobile mechanic just fixed that problem on my 2001 Ford Mustang.

Fuse panel is under the dash also as I have found with my own graceful daughter, there is a brake light switch that connects to the brake pedal itself. It is hard to get to and even harder to see but a lot of times these switches get bumped and they can not make connection when the brake pedal is depressed. Hope this helps

The top of my 1998 ford mustang covertible stop working. does not go up or down swith make no noise.


Make sure the parking brake circuit is closed. If your parking brake light isn't lit up on your dash, it's not closed. I have some issues with that switch on the brake from time to time. It won't supply power to the top switch unless the brake switch is closed. Hope this helps.

Mybrakes dont work but tail lights work


Do you mean your brake lights don't work? Check fuse first, brake light switch second, bulbs third. Could be a problem in signal light switch or wiring.

First check the light switch and brake switch. Under driver side is the rear light harness. Go to advance auto get a HAYES REPAIR MANUAL for mustang for that year I think they are all the same.

Hello i have a 1995 ford mustang gt and i need a diagram for the electricle cluster that sits in the dash board that controlls the hd lights, tail lights, break lights etc thank you


im not sure what your talking about, it sounds like you want the wiring for the cluster, but this doesnt control brake,tail or headlights, the brake lights operate through the brake light switch and go through the signal light switch to power those up. the headlights and tail lights work through the head light switch, what system do you need, or what doesnt work.

The tail light assy is a 3 bulb on a 1996 mustang coupe. Only one light bulb is illuminating in each assy. There appear to be at 2 additional bulbs per assy that are not illuminating. In addition the...


This is the only diagram I could find for tail-lamps. The top wires are voltage, the bottom wire is ground. The brown color wire is voltage for tail lamps. The other color wire is turn or stop, depending. The turn and lower brake lites use the same bulb filament, just not at the same time. The lower brake lites are wired through turn signal switch. I don't know if diagram matches what you have? I looked at several, all showed the same thing.

Dash lights, tail lights, brake lights, not working 1965 mustang


Probably either a bad ground (broken wire, rust) or a bad headlight switch. The brake light circuit goes from the stop switch (Located up above the brake pedal) through the headlight switch, through the light bulbs to ground. The tail light circuit goes through the headlight switch, through the bulbs and to ground. The only things that are in common are the headlight switch (Is this the switch you replaced?) and ground.
Not much, but hope this helps.
Have a super day!
