Check your fuses to see if one is bad, if so, change it and that should clear your problem. Hope this helps, James Booth

1998 Ford Explorer has factory trailer wiring ... won't light the left turn signal light on trailer or left brake light ... bulbs are good, all lights work when vehicle lights are on except the left...


Use this as a guide and a 12 volt test light, or multimeter to see if power at proper terminal from truck. If power there, then connection at trailer plug, or wiring from there to tail lights on trailer is faulty.motor1258_22.jpg

When i press brake pedal driver side brake light quits working but other wise it works fine?


That has a double filament bulb in it. One is for the tail light and the other for the brake and maybe the turn signal. If your turn signal flashes the tail light and not an individual turn signal bulb it will behave the same way. The way it works is that the tail light filament goes off and the brighter brake light filament comes on. The brake light half of the bulb is out. If you change it, change the passenger side too, it will do the same shortly if you leave it in. They tend to go bad in pairs. Good luck.

I have a 99 For Explorer. The brake light passenger side doesnt work. Same bulb runs the tail light and turn signal, they work. Replace bulb? Or is it electrical?


I would try replacing the bulb first. That bulb actually has 2 different filaments inside it. One of them may be burned out.

Tail lights wont work on my 1996 explorer


pull the bulb and check for power to the bulb socket if there is power replace the bulb because what happens is the bulbs get so hot they melt the sawder contacts at the bottom and that causes them not to work

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.

Turn signals have quit working


Many times the turning signals will quit because a bulb has gone out. Have the bulbs checked first.
