There is a switch that is activated when the shift lever is put into reverse. Judging from the age f your car it could very well be that.

Either the fuse under the hood that powers all your lights is blown or it could be the circuit breaker if gone bad. I'm not as familuar with your year model Taurus. Check your owners manual for the correct fuse or circuit breaker. If it is anything else that will require a mechanic, Ford stopped using mechanical relays and started using electronic systems in the 90's.

How do I replace the brake lamp on an 89 Ford Tempo XL?

Open the trunk and remove clips that hold carpet in place around the trunk latch. Remove the screw caps that hold tail light inplace and slide light assembly out. Careful NOT to pull too hard on assembly to avoid damage to wires. Squeeze clips and turn lamp socket and pull out. Replace bulb. Installation of light assembly is reverse of removal. Be sure to replace all screw caps on light assembly.

1989 for tempo starts fine but after idling for a few minutes will quit. Will stall when you pull up to a stop sign. Have to keep the engine revved up to keep it running. The check engine light comes on...


its time for new fuel filter, new fuel injectors, spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap and rotor. the engine in the tempo is a good one and if you take care of it that car should last quite a while longer..
