Be sure you aren't turning key too far. There is a "P" position that will do just that. Turn key to "OFF" position and no further.

How do I replace the rear turn signal bulb on 2006 Ford F-150?

Remove engine. Just kidding. There are two covers in the bed behind the tail light remove them and remove two nuts holding taillight in now put tape around the taillight on the body and pry around the taillight with a screwdriver till it comes out

I turn my car on and then turn the headlights on. The taillights do not come on. When I turn my car off my taillights come on.When I leave my car in the off position then I turn my headlights just to park...

Sounds like your lights switch is coming apart. Recommend you remove the switch and test it with an ohmmeter. To remove the switch, pull the knob straight off, reach behind the dash and push in the 3 tabs (top, left, and right side) holding the switch in, pull the switch back under the dash, and remove the connector. To test, use the pinouts shown on the diagram below and the switch pictured. Basically, pin 2 should have 1.2 Kohm resistance to pin 7 in the OFF position and no continuity elsewhere. Similarly, in PARK, pin 2 should have 1.2 Kohm to pin 8 and no continuity elsewhere. In the HEAD position, pin 2 should have 1.2 Kohm to pin 4 and none elsewhere.

If the switch has failed as I suspect, you will find that in the OFF position, pin 2 will have 1.2 Kohm to pin 8 rather than pin 7.
Let me know if you have questions.

Taillights only turn on with the headlights, but don't turn on for braking or signals. I've checked all the fuse and relays and they are fine. Any Suggestions?

Those lights are called running lights. Have you tried new bulbs or test the wires coming into the socket for power.

Some fords have fuses for taillights, check there too.

The three wires to the tow lights have been cut, and i cant find where in the harness they are cut can i bypass it all and just rerun new wires?

Yes. But do you have seperate yellow turn signal lights in the rear or do the turn signals work independant of the brake lights? If yes then you need to wire in a taillight converter. It takes your seperate left & right turn signals combines them with your brake lights on 2 wires instead of 3 leaving you with your normal 4 wires in total instead of 5. 1 Left turn & brake light. 1 Right turn & brake. 1 Taillight. 1 Ground. = 4 wires in total. If you dont have seperate rear turn signals just find left turn wire in taillight assembly, Right turn wire & Taillight & a good ground & you are done. On trailer plug yellow is left, green is right ,brown is tailight & white is ground.

Installed new led taillight and now there is no brake light/blowi

I fixed it. The LED light needs a "load equalizer" to operate properly. Instructions said nothing of needing one. I combed the internet and found the answer. I responded to FixYa by e-mail "REPLY" and informed of the fix. Thanks for your help...I'll remember your site for future needs.

1998 XJ8 Vanden Plas taillight problem

Check the electrical grounds for the taillights. In fact, get a diagram and check all the easily accessible grounds. Many of these are in the engine bay.
