My 2002 ford focus zx5 Break lights are staying on and won't come out of park

Sounds like a defective brake light switch. This switch also helps control the shift lock for the gear shift. The switch is attached to the brake pedal. Try wiggling the switch/wiring to see if this corrects the problem. If so, I would recommend replacing the brake light switch as it will most likely happen again

2003 focus brake lights stays on in all gears

Here is the Ford diagrams that you could to check(click for zoom)...





If it only lights up the tail lights when its in RND21 but works correct in park then I believe your looking at a internal shorted brake shift interlock on the shifter back feeding and sending power back to the brake switch and turning the lights on. I would access the shifter assembly and depin the wire I am pointing to and reconnect the connector and see if the brake light issue stops. You will need to manually shift it out of park or temporarily attach this wire to get it out of park for the test.

Brake lights staying on when car comes out of park 2002 ford focus

Clint, you might want to check your break switch to see if your button is stuck. It is right above your brake pedal. The pedal led actually hits the button of the switch. See if you can loosen it.

Ford Focus ZX5 - Rear brake lights stay on when car is running and in gear

You are the MAN, Just like you said TRocky, there was a short in the center brake light wiring. Found the short in the rubber boot that connects from the lift gate to the car. Inside that rubber boot the wires were cracked and some were shorting.Repaired the wiring and everything is back to normal.
