    Thanks Brother--- I used a test light on all fuse and haven't found a blown fuse. I probed top and bottom of fuse with juice on both ends???

  • Gumbie May 03, 2010

    On closer inspection I found a fuse holder to be wore and not repairable. I then soldered a auxiliary fuse holder along side of fuse panel, and now everything works as it should. Thanks for Your Advise - You where right on the money with Your diagnosis. Thanks.

Hi! Please check the fuse of the hazard lights. The fuse may be blown and needs replacement that’s why its not working. When replaced I believe that you’re good to go. Hope this helps and have a good one!

I have a 1977 Ford E-150, when I turn on the headlights I have no turn signal lights and no brake lights. With the headlights off the turn signals work fine and the brake lights are fine. My idea is brake...


Well, the headlight switch would have no connection to the brake and turn signals. But you could have a ground problem somewhere.
I would want to trace the circuit from the brake switch to the tail lamps with the headlights on to verify.
And does it matter if you are using headlights or just parking lights.

I have no break lights or turn signals


Turn signal tail lights and BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING


It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its blown brake light bulb. First check and confirm brake light lamp is working and that's not the case.

For turn signal not working it can be faulty turn signal switch or its issue with wiring:----

I have a 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis the turn signals, brake lights, and turning lights do not work. The running lights and hazard lights do work. I checked the bulbs and the relay can for the turn signals...


Turn signal switch (also brake light canceling switch) most likely bad or bad wire to it or from it. Check, with key on run, for power into switch. Turn switch on, check for power out. No power out switch bad. Power out, trace to rear tailight harness for broken wire.

Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues


Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

If the left turn signal works but the left brake light doesn't, you probably need a new turn signal switch. This is inside the steering column behind the steering wheel. You have to remove the steering wheel to get to it. The brake lights are wired through the turn signal switch so the brake light on one side is de-activated when the turn signal is flashing on that side.

If the brake light and turn signal both are not working on one side, you probably have an open circuit somewhere. This could be anywhere from the turn signal switch through the wiring harnesses that go through the steering column, under the dash, possibly through the firewall, down along the frame, and back to the taillight bulb.

No turn signals or brake lights on left and right but brake light on top


I agree. My brake light dont work. Only the third brake light does. The running lights work but when i apply the brakes the rear tails dont light up.
I currently have this issue along with the signals dont work unless I bang the top of the steering colum. The hazard switch doesnt work either. If the signals dont work it makes this very quick clicking sound on the passenger side. I checked the fuses and they are good. The bulbs still work. The brake switch works cause the third brake light goes on. And seeing as I am having a problem with signals.....GM says I have to replace the switch in the steerg colume. Its a little box about the size of a cigarette pack. If you take apart the panels off ( right behind the steering wheel, where the hazard switch is) ...that is where it is located. Its plugged into the signal lever. Hope this helpa....Good luck everyone with this issue.
