Question about Ford F-150

1 Answer

My brake lights continue to stay on. I have replaced the brake switch. In fact, the brake lights will stay on even after unhooking the wiring harness to the switch. The hazard relay is good, the turn signal relay is good. Brake fluid levels are good and all bulbs are good. How is power still getting to the brake lights? Could the problem be in the turn signal wiring? I have to pull the fuse to get them to turn off. This is a 1995 ford f150.

Brake switch must be adjusted such that it is depressed with pedal up and released as soon as pedal is slightly depressed.

Brake Light wont go out


The brake lights stay on even when the vehicle has been restored to the "before" condition?!? Now that's strange. I'm assuming the brake lights worked properly before you did anything with the trailer hookup. Is that correct? Do the brake lights work OK when a trailer is hooked up to the trailer lighting harness? Regardless, if the brake lights stay on all the time, there is a continuous 12V to the bulbs to ground. You have a wiring short somewhere in the vehicle. Have you checked the wiring for bare spots (caused by rubbing) or cuts in the wires.

Since the brake lights won't turn off, you have created a continuous path of 12V through the bulbs to ground, regardless of the brake switch operation. If you did not use the plug in type of wiring harness to attach the "trailer plug", then I would systematically undo each wire that you attached to and see what fixes the problem. I assume you know that the Blazer has a trailer connection plug-in location tucked up under the rear bumper. You simply unplug the mating harnesses, plug in the trailer wiring connector, plug in the disconnected harnesses and wha-la you should be good to go.

Hope helps.

Brake lights stay on continuous


Sounds like you have a jammed or bad brake light switch.  It is mounted on the brake pedal.  Check to make sure it isn't jammed somehow.  If not, you probably need to replace.  Hope this helps.

Blowing brake light fuses everytime you hit brakes.


Sounds like a short in the steering colume, maybe the turn signal switch, or a wire that the insulation got wore thru in the colume. Unhook break light switch and try the turn signals and hazards again and see what happens, maybe you can isolate it that way. Also if you havent done it already chk.the sockets in tailight housing for corrosion and bear wires, or anything, even ground wires.
