Which fuse is for the Brake Lights on a 98 Mercury Mountaineer. It is NOT listed on the Diagram fir the Interior Fuse Box !!


They're part of the turn light fuse. Replace the turn signal switch. All exterior lights run threw it, except the high mount brake light.

How to troubleshoot brake light failure


first thing is to check your brake light fuse, most cars trucks have a seperate fuse for the high mount brake light. If that is good check the bulbs, it wouldn't be the first time both bulbs blew at the same time.

No break lights, 1999 villager


Check 20A fuse 51 in the fuse junction panel. This feeds power to the brake pedal position switch which, when closed, turns on the high mounted stoplamp and the rear park/stop lamps. The brake pedal position switch could be defective.

1999 GMC Envoy: replaced both GE 3057 lamps in left rear light assembly. Lamps both light. However depressing brake pedal does not initiate brake light. The righ rear brake light does work. The high mount...


The high mount brake light has its own fuse, so check that first. The high mount bulb is generally a stabdard type (there may be more than one bulb) or you can replace with an LED. As for the left rear bulbs not working when depressing brake pedal, check the bulbs again for any spring that may be broken. If the bulbs are still good, make sure there is sufficient contact with the socket. If still not working, have someone check it out further.

Brake lights do not work


There is a fuse for that. The changes that both rear break light bulbs broke is highly unlikely. Check the fuse if that's ok then go to the rear, remove both bulbs and check to see if the filliment is broken.

now if that's ok then you have faulty wiring/wiring harness

Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.


Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.

Malfunctioning brake lights.


Most likely a short in your break line. You might also check the brake switch, but I would think if the break switch was going, it you wouldn't even have the third lite working...
