Try pressing on the brake pedal and wiggle turn switch at the same time, if the brakes work the problem is within the column.

Sounds like your brake light switch is going or gone bad it is located on the brake pedal up by the steering colum pretty easy to change just go to your local parts store and purchase one then you will know what you are looking for and will be able to figure out how to make the change

good luck

My 2001 ford windstars brake lights won't work. I


There is a brake light switch operated via the brake pedal. Once the switch wears out there is nothing to activate the brake lights. You will have to have the brake light switch replaced if a check of the vehicles wiring for the lighting is shown to be all in order.

The gear will not go into park and allow the truck to start nor move to any gear


HI the problem you are having is with the brake light switch if the switch isnt working then it wont allow you to change the gear.

get someone to check the lights for you have the ignition on and press the brakes and get someone to see if the brake lights come on, if they dont then the brake light switch will need replacing, the switch is located on the back of the brake pedal, its a bit difficult to get to and you have to get on your hands and knees and have a close look at the brake pedal the switch is located at the very top of the pedal and at the back you should see it it will have a couple of wires going to it.

if the brake lights are working then check that the brake lights are on when you try changing the gear you may need to press the brake pedal down a bit harder so the brake light switch works.

let me know if the brake lights are working then ill assist you further if the lights dont work then its the brake light switch that needs replacing.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I replaced light bulb and brake switch is there anything else that needs to be rp;acedto make brake light work


If you have already check fuses, and brake light's still don't work, it's going to be your turn signal switch, the brake light circit runs thought the brake light switch, if your car has a middle top brake light in back of rear window, most of the time that one will still work, and the turn signal will also work, but not the rear ones brake light's, when turn signal switch is bad, hope this was very helpful.

2001 ford f150. blinkers want work. brake lights want work. but the light at rear above back glass works when i press the brakes. help


you need first to determine the obvious as most people don't check to see if there brake lights work. make sure the bulbs are not burnt out. if you use the blinkers and the light stays on when you operate them that is usually an indication a light is burnt out.

more than likely it will be a faulted brake light switch...located on your brake pedal itself.....closer towards the firewall.. easiest to buy a chiltons manual...or possibly ask your neighborhood auto repair shop for the wiring schematic for your brake light switch.....hope I helped!!!

Parking lights work third brake light works,just not back brakes?


The bulbs do not need to be replaced! The answer to this problem is believe it or not in the turn signal lever, or multi-function switch. It is extremely common on these cars, and usually mis-diagnosed. Try this before going any farther. Back the vehicle up to a wall, or have a person stand behind the car, and pull the turn signal lever slightly towards you as if you were switching between hi and low beams. I guarantee that when you put just a little pressure on the lever your brake lights will work. If you want the problem fixed, you need to have the switch (and lever arm) replaced from inside the steering column, and you need someone to remove the airbag to do this. The switch is roughly $200 from an aftermarket parts store. If you learn to drive your car and just know that when you brake you can pull back on the lever to make the lights work great, I did for a few years in mine. But I guarantee that is the answer to your problem
