I assume u have checked all the fuses and the bulbs are ok? if yes then u will need to replace the turn signal switch on the steering column, the lower brake lights go through the switch and this is a common sysmptom of a defective contact inside the switch, they are not repaired just replaced.

2001 Escort ZX2: it wont go out of park...


There is a safety lock-out that keeps you from taking the car out of gear if you don't push the brake. If your brake lights still work then the switch is good. Also, some people have reported that if the high mount brake light is bad it will keep the car from being shifted out of park. If all of your brake lights work then the solenoid is bad. Remove the center console to get to the solenoid. Since the solenoid is expensive most people just zip-tie the solenoid open so that you don't have to push the brake to shift it from park.

In my rear tailights, the breaklight component is not functioning. i replaced them with brand new lights. the center breaklight located in the back window is still working. Cant figure out why they wont...


Have had this problem many time's here at my shop, if center brake light come's on which you said it does, fuse and relay are good, the problem is your turn signal switch cause the brake light circuit goes through the switch, the switch is bad even though the turn signal's still work's, good luck, hope this was evrey helpful.

Center brake light illuminates, but LH/RH brake lights do not


LH/RH lights cable could be disconnected anywhere, will take a long time to trace.
Center Brake Light and LH & RH should be connected at one point.
Jump a cable from Center Brake Light to one of Rear Break Light.
Hope this will works.
