I have a 1996 ford countor se my blankers work and my top brake light in the window works my parkin lights work. But the other two dont


First thing to do would be to check the brake light bulbs. If not sure put in a new light bulb. You can also use the tests light to check the connection. If you still don't have any luck get a wire diagram and test power at the harness for to blinkers switch. Good luck.

No brake lights on a 1996 ford contour ..3rd light and blinkers work fine I have ohm'd out brake switch on pedal and it is good ..blinkers on front and back both work.. no power to bulb socket on brown to...


The brake lights (excluding the 3rd brake light) go through the turn signal switch. It's possible there's a bad connection in the switch causing your symptoms. I would rule out the brake switch on the pedal, considering the third brake light works. Locate a wiring diagram for the brake light circuit, follow the wires into the steering column as far as you can and verify it's getting power up until the turn signal switch and verify no power is coming out of it. Once that's determined it's time to replace the switch.

Brake Lights on a 05 Ford Escape


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Check the ground wire. There would be 3 wires, brake, tail/park and ground. To verify, have someone step on the brakes, jump the base/metal body of the bulb socket to any exposed metal such as a screw/bolt.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

97 FORD CONTOR NO BRAKE LIGHTS INSIDE REAR WINDOW BRAKE LIGHT WORKS,SIGNALS WORK EMEGENCY WORKS TOO ,BUT NO BRAKE LIGHTS. HELP!


If there is no fuse that is blown, then according to wiring diagrams on autozone.com repair info link it must be the combination switch: http://econtent.autozone.com:24991/znetrgs/repair_guide_content/en_us/images//0900c152/80/0a/8d/31//large/0900c152800a8d31.gif

My mother's brake lights (1996 Ford Contour) were not working and it was the combination switch. The combination switch is an assembly by the wheel, you use it to give turn signals, high beam, hazard lights and apparently the 'smart' Ford designers linked the rear brake lights to it. Could be a contact that is oxidized. I repaired mine. I may have one lying around. You can get this from a junk yard. I believe it is pretty simple to remove.
