It definetly sounds like you may have a short circuit in the wiring...either because of something just installed incorrectly or by mistake, or by age (wear and tear).....the problem is where and how to fix it...if you are unsure of not confident oin repairing electrical circuits, my suggestion is to provide it to an automotive electrical shop to just diagnose the fault for you....then you may have a better understanding of where you are at and what the cost of repair will be........

Hi! Please try this. Open the hood and remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. to reset the system. Put the battery connector again and see how it goes. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

    Alright, then the fault will be on the PCM (powertrain control module). THe PCM has connectivity on all electrical current that runs inside the car including the engine and transmission. You will need to have it resetted at the dealership to correct this.

What do I need to replace for code c1226?


Take your battery cables off for 10 minutes and hook them back up. This will reset the computer and clear the codes. If it stays popped up, the bulb for the abs system in your dash cluster is burnt out.

Instrument panel brake light stays on what does it mean


The brake warning light is for the hydraulic system.
It could be low on fluid or several other things. There may also be a warning light for a dead brake or tail light.

No brakes lights on 2000 Ford F250 after pulling trailer. Checked all fuses and are OK. Rear brake light above cab is working. Checked both bulbs also.Thanks Bill


Depending on where your truck was made you will either find the fuse under the gauge cluster or under the hood in the power distribution box. The fuse for the trailer lights is separate from the fuse for the truck brake-lights.

The 2002 F-250 PStroke 4x4 had the instument lamps poping the fuse intermittently .
Turned out to be a wire getting pinched btween the emergency brake lever and the release stop .
Had to remove the keft kick panel and there was a yellow wire coming from the lower harness up toward the dash . the wire was pinched /hung up in the emergency brake mechanism . Good Luck
