Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Hello, everytime I apply my brakes, the front side lights come on.
Had same problem,check your tail/brake light bulb.they should have 2 steel connectors.on my driver side tail the bulb had single connector, it was causing same prob as you.so get 2 new bulbs and replace both driver and pass side and should do the job

One of you bulbs are shorrted out and back feeding the system change the bulbs in the rear that should take care of it

Three (3) possibilities:
1. some of the wires in the wiring harness leading to the rear shorting with each other;
2. there is water/moisture in the rear lights enclosure/bulb sockets;
3. the rear double contact bulbs has a loose grounding (very likely). Often this could be caused by corrosion on the connectors, the bulb socket or the wire itself. A quick way to verify this is to run a jumper wire from the car's rear body (bare metal) to the bulb's or bulb socket's grounding point.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

There is a contact in light wiring. At some point a wire to brake lights make contact to wire to front side light (peeled wire, bad insulated connector etc.)
You need to have your wiring circuit inspected.
