Does horn work?
If not, the under-hood fuse/relay box has a fuse/relay called No.13 HORN/STOP 20A. It is probably bad. Replace.

If ok then check brake light switch located at top of brake peddle under dash.
The switch has wires that can be removed by unplugging plastic connector. The connector has a plastic tab that has to be squeezed down in order to remove. Jump the wires to see if light work. If not use volt meter to test.
If lights work then remove the switch and replace. the switch is held on by 1 or 2 small metric head bolts (8 or 10mm) wrench or socket needed. Local auto parts store should have new switch.
I assume that you do not have a trailer hitch. J

You probably need to change your break switch. It is located under the dash. Your break pedal stem, when pushed down, hits the button to the break switch. It is usually chrome looking and looks like a small cylinder. If you need anything else, let me know. I am here to help. Thank you very much for choosing FixYa.

Did you check the fuses with a test light? A fuse can look OK, but unless you test continuity or use a test light, you could be mislead.

How do i fix the brake lights on my mercury sable. all the other lights work fine


Does your car have the `lamp out'indicator system? It's more complicated.
My manual shows fuse #28 , a 15 amp fuse powers the brake bulbs.Is this the one you changed?
A bulb can be out for a long time and you don't notice it,then the other burns out and you think they both went out at the same time,but they might not have,see?
So check the bulbs and make sure you got that brake switch installed correctly. don-ohio (:^)

On my 4 x 4, the passenger break lights don't work but the bulbs are good. What do I look for?


When you lock and unlock the doors, this is usually the side light which illuminates, not the brake light.
Remove the brake light bulb, (which also contains the side light filament) and check the filament. It's likely blown, so simply replace it.

Both rear turn signals have stopped working, front are fine? Is it the switch?


the switch controls both front and rear signal lights.the wires just T off in the harness to go both ways.you don`t say but are the rear bulbs ok.there is 2 filaments in the bulbs one for tail lights and one for signals/brake lights.so the brake lights work if so then the bulbs are good.if not then the bulbs may be the problem.it could also be a wire feed/ground problem that you will have to trace from the sockets back through the system with a test light checking for power and ground.
