1992 f150 lights on buzzer wont stop beeping


There is a good chance that the Ignition switch is not really turning off or you have a bad light relay.. The buzzer is only suppose to work when the lights are left on and the Ignition switch is off.

If a portion of the light relay is stuck, it can keep the buzzer grounded. If the Ignition switch is bridging its contact points, the circuit can be active when it is suppose to be off.

If you sign up with Autozone.com for free, you can get some Diagrams of your circuits free after entering your Vehicle type. Once you locate the light relay, sometimes the horn relay is the same part and they interchange. You can read the part number and just swap them.

I have a 91 ford f150 and the brake lights wont work and the rear right blinker is dim. Can you help me?


Check System Fuse - A fuse is used to protect the brake light circuit from amperage overload. If the fuse has failed it will not allow the electrical current to continue to the brake lights. To check the fuse, first locate the brake light system fuse in the fuse panel which is either under the dash or under the hood in the power distribution center. Connect the test light to a ground like an engine or dash bracket and turn the ignition key to the "on" position. Using the test light probe both sides of the fuse. If the test light illuminates on both sides the fuse is okay continue onto the next step. If one side of the fuse illuminates the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced. If the fuse fails as soon as it is replaced or when you apply the brake pedal the brake light electrical circuit is shorted to ground. Rarely a system short can occur, a car repair manual is needed to find the wiring schematic for the brake light circuit. Once the brake light wiring has been located inspect and repair as needed.

Check Brake Light Bulbs - All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If all of these brake light bulbs fail no brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say all three brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove any of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is okay or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are okay continue to the next step.

Checking the Brake Light Switch - A control switch is used to connect the brake light electrical circuit. This switch is located near the brake pedal lever. Basic switches have just two wires, power in and power out to the turn signal switch. Use a test light that is grounded and with the key in the "on" position test for power at one side (wire) of the switch, then press the brake pedal while testing the opposite side (wire). It should illuminate the test light, if electrical power is connected through the switch go to the next step. If no power is detected through the switch the brake light switch has failed and replacement is required. If your car is equipped with more than two wires integrated into the brake light switch a car repair manual is needed to locate the proper brake light circuit wiring.

Gearshift locked, no power windows, interior lights, wipers


For starters, do you have brake lamps? The shift lockout is controlled by the brake switch. As far as the others, yes it could be the GEM (generic electronic module) some of these vehicles have water intrusion problems that leat into the fusebox and GEM which is located on the back of the fuse box. If you can look at the fuse box inside the vehicle and if you can see the back, look for corrosion which is a sign of water.
