Make sure that your hazard switch is all the way OFF I have seen this problem. But here power comes in the brake light switch from the fuse, when you press on the brake it closes and powers the other wire that goes up into the steering column into the turn signal switch and then out to the brake lights I can send you a wiring diagram if you send me your email to fixincars@yahoo.com

Why The back lights wont turn on, is a 1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer?


If by "back lights" you are referring to the backup lights and 10A FUSE 26 in the interior fuse panel checks OK, the transmission range switch may be defective.

If the park lamps are not working, the headlamp switch or the park lamp relay could be defective.

If the stop lamps are not working, the brake on/off switch could be defective.

My 03 ford explorer wont go into park. It taks the other gears but not park. please help


Check the brake lights, if they don't work the system will not come out of part. if the brake lights are not working check the brake light switch connector, the wire breaks inside the connector and although the switch is connected there is not any actual electrical connection just plastic insulator over broken wires. The dealer sells repair connectors.

Fender brake lights not working


You should probably check the multi-function switch. This is the turn signal switch assembly. The brake lights on most all vehicles, are routed through the turn signal switch, and then go to the rear of the vehicle. This is done because the brake light bulb on many vehicles is used as a turn signal bulb as well, and there has to be a way to break the connection from the brake light circuit to allow the turn signal to operate on the same bulb. Use caution when checking or removing the multi-function switch assembly, as you must remove the protective cover from the steering column, and there is an air bag harness located inside. If in doubt, always refer to the manufacturer's service guidelines for making any repairs in or around the steering column.
