If you have a trailer connector on the vehicle check for crossed or shorted wires at that connector. If not then you need to start tracing wires under the vehicle looking for shorts or grounded wires. The center light runs off 1 wire and the two brake lights are on a separate wire. Check for grounded wires or missing grounds near the jack storage in the vehicle if that is stowed in a compartment in the rear of the vehicle. If all of this is good, replace the flasher unit under the dash near the fuse panel.

No brake lights


Check the fuse in the fuse panel under the dash. Check the brakelight bulbs and see if they are good, it is unlikely the bulbs will both blow at the same time, it pays to check them. If the fuse is good, then the brakelight switch is bad under the dash,on the brake pedal. If you haven't done these repairs before, it is very tight getting under the dash to get to the brakelight switch. You may want to take it to a shop and let them do it.
I hope this has been helpful.

What number fuse is my brake lights in a 1998 mercury mystique fusebox


Sounds like loose wiring to either the earth or Postive connection in the main running wiring. rechk all connections particuarly yr pull off/on connections. Most fuses run at 10A for lights, but this depends on how many using this fuse. Chk that power is getting thru to various points with a meter, this will show u where the porblem lies. cheers

No rear signals or brakelights except third brakelight


TURN ON IGNITION SWITCH,GET A GOOD FUSE TESTER, CHECK ALL FUSES INSIDE THE CAR & UNDER THE HOOD. THE FUSES CAN ALL BE CHECKED WHILE STILL IN THE FUSE BOXES THERE ARE TEST POINTS FACING OUT ON EACH FUSE. POWER ON ONE SIDE OF THE FUSE, BAD FUSE. POWER ON BOTH SIDES, GOOD FUSE. NO POWER ON EITHER SIDE , SPARE FUSE.

My rear lights don't come on when i turn my headlights instead my 3rd brake light comes on


Hi there,

Your rear brake bulb wiring is connected to the high stop light, but when your problem occurs, it usually means there is a short in one of the brake bulbs (or associated connectors).

Firstly, inspect the brakelight fuse (just in case the rear lights are on a separate circuit).

Secondly, check for blown brakelight bulbs (and replace if necessary).

Thirdly, remove the bulbs and ensure they are the correct type (i.e. the bulb contacts must match the bulb holder - usually double contacts). If you have the incorrect contacts type, this will cause a short also.

Hope this helps...

Taillights will not work, but turn sig, brakelights work, fuses are all good


Some makes and models have different taillight bulbs and brakelight bulbs. in other words your turn signals and brakelights are on one bulb and the tailights are on another, or they have multiple filaments and one of them could be bad

Brakelights are not working, only the high brake light works


First thing to check is fuses, i know one lamp works, but maybe the two main lamps have their own fuse, doesn't hurt to check.

Getting at the bulbs is easy, open your rear hatch (door) and you will see a few screws holding each rear lamp in place, once all screws are removed the lamp needs to be carefully pulled out, there will be some sort of clip or clips holding it in place, so don't just yank it off, slowly pull on it until loose.

It's a good safety precaution to disconnect your battery just in case. Then to remove the bulb, normally its a quarter or half turn and the bulb comes right out for you to look at. You can use a multimeter, and (with battery connected) turn lights on and see if there is power at the bulb. if there is replace the bulb. if not, then you have other issues; wiring, fuses ... could be many different things.

I hope this helps you. Sometimes you can see the filament in the bulb is broken, but a lot of the time the bulb can look fine but have a broken connection (aka an Open) elsewhere in the bulb. Get a battery and wires, connect them to the bulb, see if you can get light.

Goodluck

BRAKELIGHT STOPPED WORKING,CHECKED FUSE IT'S NOT BLOWED BUT THE THIRD BREAKLIGHT WORKS,WHAT CAN I DO.


Check and/or replace the bulb.

The fact that the third brake light works is a good sign that the circuit is fine, at least as to that point.
