You definitely have a short in your power line for your brakes. Shorts can be very difficult to find. They can be anything from water in the fixture to someone tapping into the brake line for their car stereo. (if you accidently used the brake power line as ground, it could be shorting through the chassis of the car/truck since an ohm meter would read it as ground without the pedal being pushed.) You might find the easiest way to solve the problem is to take it to a professional and it might even take them a few hours or just a few minutes to find.) It IS unquestionably a short in the brake wire, and it is unfortunately impossible for anyone to give you a firm answer without being with your car with a voltmeter in hand. Take it to a pro. Good Luck

Why does a fuse keep blowing out for the brake lights?

Look at the fuse when its blows again. If the fuse element in black and lots of spray inside the fuse you have a dead short to ground, work from the lights back towards the switch, follow the wiring looking for any signs of blackened and burned wires and/or black burn spots on the body metal. If its just melted but still a clean break it indicates the circuit is being overloaded at some point. Try disconnecting all items in the smae circuit, plug each in one at a time, once it blows you found which one is casing the problem.

High mount brake light works, but tail brake lights dont 2000 mercury mountaineer

I'd check the bulbs and wires on tail lights. Sometimes bulbs go out of place and wires corrode. In my car (not a mercury though) I had to give a little smack on the light to get it working. Of course, eventually I cleaned all wire connections (including ground wire) inside the light and all works now. I had a problem with one light though so if both tail lights are out it might be wires broken/shorted on the way from splitting point where one section heads to the high mount brake light and other to the tail light.
Would be good to check the fuses too, they might have different ones. If blinkers and reverse also don't work then it's more likely wire problem like I stated before.

I have no brake lights on my 1950 mercury I,ve replaced the brake switch at the master cyl. but still no lights I,ve even tried bybassing the switch still no luck if theirs a fuse I can,t find it I,ve...

The way you had gone to identify the fault had been a little tricky as you assumed the failure of the components which you have replaced. It is important to have a multimeter in voltmeter mode to checck on the 12 volt that needs to come to the light. You will need to switch on , ask some one to press the brake pedal and check for the 12 volt on the brake switch. If there is no voltage coming to this section the line is faulty in the harness. it will be easier to take a new line from the fuse box to the switch. Now your lights will work as the swittch on pressing will contact to give voltage to the lamp assmbly. If not check the ground of the brake light assembly. This will clear without doubt your fault. Hope this helps you. Good day

The left one quit working about 6 weeks ago today

Hello! a device called the Tail Light Relay; Located in the under dash fuse/relay box is the likely culprit...It controls the left/right brake lights but not the middle brake light...Also check that the L/R brake lights have a solid ground...Use an ohm meter...Zero ohms to negative battery terminal...

Infiniti I30 Battery+Parking brake lights on

The only thing your battery light and your brake light have in common is your battery and alternator. This happened to me and my battery was low because my alternator went bad. I suggest taking it to autozone (if there is one near you). They can test it for free.
