Question about 2006 Ford Five Hundred

1 Answer

Rear lights stopped working on my Ford Five Hundred

Slowly all the rear lights on my car stopped working. Initially it started with the rear third brake light, then the brake lights, finally my hazard lights. At this point the only lights that work on the rear of the car are the driving lights and the backing up lights.

Does anyone know if this is a common problem for 06 Ford Five Hundreds?

Brake light stop working


I can't imagine three brake lights all losing their grounds. You will need a volt meter to check (with the help of an assistant) to see if about 12 volts is available at the bulb socket's brake light socket (as measured to ground) when the brake pedal is depressed and held. Do the same for the other light and finally the third brake light. If there is a total loss of power at all the bulb sockets with the brake pedal depressed and held, check for about 12 volts coming to the brake pedal switch while not being depressed and that voltage comes out the other connection at the switch when the brake pedal is depressed. If power comes in on one wire but doesn't come out the other side when pressing the pedal this means the switch is bad. Replace it with a new one. Ne advised that SOME vehicles brake lights don't come on if the key is off, on most they work at all times even if the key is off.

98 chevy lumina Rear window break light works, but rear break lights don't, also right turn don't work?


I can almost 100% guaranty the turn signal switch is the problem. Power for the brake lights starts at the brake switch. power then splits from there and the third brake light gets power directly from the brake switch. Since the turn signal and the brake lights are on the same bulb power for the brake lights is routed through the turn signal switch. the switch depending on what position it is in will allow brake power or turn signal power to there respective left or right brake/turn bulbs.

If you hold your foot on the brake pedal and wiggle the turn signal and or play with the hazard switch the brake lights will almost always intermittently start to work. this will confirm a bad turn signal switch which is pretty common on GM vehicle with this style setup.

if the third brake light works then ther is a broken wire. start looking for it at the tail lights and work forward if you cant find the break you can always run a new possitive wire from either the third brake light to the tail lights or if the trailer wiring harness hase power to the brake lights you can splice in there as well. hope this helps
