Question about 2006 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

My brake light went out but the fuse is not blown and when I pulled the bulb out the bulb is not blown either. The bulb works when I hit the unlock/lock button on the remote. Does that mean there may be a short somewhere?

The brake light switch may be bad, or possibly out of adjustment. Get a repair manual for the car and look up the location of the switch, and check it out.

My driver side brake light went out but the tale light still works bulb is new


Hi Jimmy.

Most every circuit in a car goes through a fuse. if you look in your owners manual for the particular vehicle you drive, you should find a listing for a fuse for brake light or brake lights. The tail light being OK should not have anything to do with the brake light. They'll be different bulbs, or, at worst, different filaments in the same bulb, and on different fuses. The brake and tail lights are distinct because otherwise, if you had your tail lights on at night, no one could tell you were pressing your brakes.

If you were meaning that the bulb for the brake light in the tail cluster is good, that also will point to a blown fuse. Check there first.

Good Luck

My brake lights dont work everything else but rakes


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to check the fuse first. It may have blown. If the fuse is good, check the bulbs. If both are good, you probably have a bad brake switch. It is located above the brake pedal. It looks like a chrome looking round cylinder. The pedal actually hits the brake switch and it activates the brake. The small button may be stuck. If not, change it and the brake lights should work.

Brake lights will not work. fuse not blown, bulbs not blown.


Does your turn signal act up? Or your Hazards? Does all three of your brake lights stay off when you hit the brakes or just the two sides ones?

Yesterday my back brake lights both went out. How do I fix the problem? Thank you, Yvonne


Hello Yvonne:

1st thing to check is your Fuses, Could be that its only a Blown Brake Light Fuse.

If your Brake Light Fuse is good ,Then i would Try to put New Bulbs in and see if its That for some reason both bulbs just happen to burn out at same time.

And if still no Brake Lights you'll need to Replace your Brake light switch,which is located drivers side under dash mounted to the Brake pedal Metal part up above where you push the brake pedal.

You'll see the wiring that connects to the Swith,Just pull off the wire connector and remove the brake light switch.

Yvonne this will get your brake lights working.

Thank you for using FixYa Please let me know how my Solution helped you out by Voting ,and a Testamony would be appreciated.

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango I bought about 4 hours ago. The tail lights do not work but the brake light and turn signals do. Also the dash lights do not work. The dash lights came on when I hit the...


The odds are the one fuse is blown for the dash and the tail lights. And the wrong bulb may have been put in for the brake light. The brake light is feeding back into the tail light circuit causing the fuse to blown out.

Change out the bulbs with OEM bulbs and replace the blown fuse. That should fix the problem.

Brake lights not working


Not even the third eye? then the fuse is blown or all the bulbs are out or the brake light switch on the break pedal is bad wire off or broken( it breaks right off the plug then crosses then blows the fuse as the loose broken wire hits the brake pedel arm. Test the break pedal switch first if the third eye doesesnt work either. no power with a test light the fuse is blown or the wire broke ( the wire goes straight to the switch from the fuse and doesnt go anywhere elese. the other wire if hot should light the lights. Most of these wont come out of park without this working as the wire also turns on the park release but some Fords the park release sticks released and Ford made em that way as they didnt like the brake to get out of park law. If the brake lights dont work maybe you ought not be able to get out of park anyway till its fixed. the switch is hot on both wires with the switch pused down and the lights dont still work go after the third eye first if the bulbs are bad change em before you do the rest of the work. on cars with yellow turn signals the brake lights all work on the same wire but red only use three wires, but you didnt say the turn signales didnt work if they work and they are red you r on the way to the turn signal switch as the brake switch powers the turn switch with power then it splites it fot the two lights and adifferent switch circuit for the front hooks them all together for hazard. yellow turns in the back or even separt bulbs can mean blown bulbs ther too its old enought for all the bulbs to fail and the runs still work.

Brake lights not working but third brake light works?


Check your fuse for the brakes, if fuse is blown replace. If not fuse go buy a package of brake light bulbs at the auto store. Then replace the bulbs.

Hope this helps

20 amp fuse for brake lights continually blows out


you have a short in the wiring to your brake circuit.check the pedal switch,it could be cracked and shorting out.those switches are known for having the tail lights stay on until you hit it a few times.the other thing to check is the light assemblies.there may be enough corrosion to cause a short.instead of a fuse,wire a bulb across an open fuse.when the short shows up the bulb will light.use a 25 watt bulb.
