Seems lie you have an electrical problem
why don't you take the light off and make sure everything is plugged in real good if that don't work maybe it is the bulb itself having a fault in it, may have to change the bulb. I hope this helps

It sounds like you need to replace the Brake Switch which is located on your brake pedal and sends a signal when you apply the brakes to the brake lights.

Antilock light came on in my 2000 Ford Expedition. I am told it may be a fuse or fuses I need to check. I am not seeing anything on the fuse diagram which ones to check. Any thoughts?

I don't I have ever replaced an ABS fuse. Most likely you have a bad wheel sensor. Have the codes read. You will still have brakes until you get it repaired. Just not anti lock brakes. Meaning that the wheels will stop turning if you hit the brakes hard enough.

I had this same problem (brake lights won't come on when pushing on brake) I found that the brake light sending unit had come out of adjustment.Look under the dash by the brake pedal.There is a plastic threaded unit that needs to be pushed back towards the brake pedal lever.Careful not to push it to far or the brake lights will stay on. Hope this helps

I have a 2001 ford expedition an my brake lights is not working need helppppp

Have you checked the brake switch itself? Sometimes they twist off when working under the dashboard. if you have a tester or voltmeter, try checking for power on the green or green with red wire at the brake switch plug. If voltage is present when the brake is depressed, you might have a broken wire going to the back lights somewhere along the harness. Let me know.

Shift gear stuck wont move front PARK . to DRIVE CANNOT START CAR

Check the fuse for the brake lights, it may have the system where you can only select if the brake pedal is depressed. First get someone to check if the brake lights work, if they dont, then check the fuse or connections to the pedal switch.
Hope this helps

Main brakes lights wont work

I have the same problem and after a year of trouble shooting I have figured out that my third brake light the one on the top of the tail gate, the lens cover has a couple of cracks and water seeps in and my brake lights work, when it dries out they stop working because the water bridges the power to all the plugs.

So in order to fix this problem I ordered a new 3rd brake light from the ford dealer for about $180.00 as I was not able to find one at a junk yard or online, now my brake work. Also the new light comes with new plugs, lens cover and base so I guess it's worth it.

Check yours for a crack then uninstall it so you could see the melted plugs.

Good luck.
