Question about 2000 Ford Focus

High and low mount brake lights

About a week ago I could not get it out of park, I found the brake light fuse was blown. now the high mount no longer works, and when I'm in drive the lower brake lights start to flicker and stay on and my blinkers don't work after driving for about half an hour. could this be a short somewhere?

    It could be the brake light switch or the plug to it some fords have that problem.

Could be a short but could also be a bad ground at one of the lights!

Had this problem myself. Try replacing your brake light switch, they are not real expensive and can be changed in a matter of mineuts. It is located by following your brake pedal all the way up to the top, when you get there , there id a switch that when you push down on the brake it releases the button to put you brake lights on and when you take your foot off the brake itallows the switch to go back.

It sounds like the shifter lock out solenoid has gone bad.It is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you push the brake pedal.

SOURCE: brake switch fuse keeps blowing

replace your brake pressure switch on the master cylinder and that should take care of your problem.

SOURCE: The high mount stop lamp not working while two brake lights stay

There will be a switch on the the brake pedal. Gently move it back and forth. If the lights stay on this will have to be replaced. Then replace the third brake light bulb.

Low and high beam headlights don't work. Parking lights, break lights, turn signals all work. Two weeks I had to buy a new battery and but before I bought the battery both low and high beam lights worked...


More than likely there is a bad ground. The same ground wire that is used for the headlights is spliced into and used for the parking lights, brake lights and directional lights. The circuits for the brake lights, the brake light switch, the directions and directional switch are related. The circuits for the parking lights, headlights, headlight switch and high/low beam switch are related as well, but the only thing all these circuits have in common is their ground source. Any questions feel free to write back. Good Luck.

Replace the turn signal switch. All the exterior lights run threw it, except the high mount brake light.

97 Jeep Wrangler 4 cyl. Turn signals, headlights, parking lights, tail and brake lights, and instrument panel are all out. Only interior light above brake pedal is working. Engine will start.


i think you ment IP cluster backlights dead not warning ligts
that is real the huge parking light structures.
a blown fuse. it is, why not test them ? first.

either cab fuse or the engine bay fuse box.
12vdc on both sides of fuse, is a good fuse, key on.
100% accurate test. no guessing. ever with voltmeter.
(rare exceptions a car with a ground fuse, very rare)
so lets do this the hard way, no fuse tests......

but hark the fsm is free. why not just look at the road map er, schematic, (wiring diagrams)
lets do HL , they are hot all the time, keys lost .

your car is a TJ so having a TJ book is spiffy , no? KEEN?
lets do that. TJ wiring
click TJ
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

now click wiring, following me?
posted this 100 times,., here.

my guess is parks are dead High beams good, right, ?????
yes then go to JUMP 1.
HL dead highs and low beam? parks out.(aka TAIL)
PDF page # 92
fuse PDC #17 blown? kills cluster dead too
JUMP1: parks dead.
had lamps is fuse #1, jb (page 134 pdf)
then PDC fuse 4 and 10 (lows and highs)

PDC is engine bay box.
JB is cab box.

so my guess (hard way)
fuse 10 and CB 24 was blown. kills high/low beams
Fues1 and 4 only parks. and cluster dimmer feed.

page 134 makes all this childs play with a meter.
volt meter.

No brake lights check fuses no blown fuses but the center brake light work


If the center high mount brake light comes on when brake pedal is depressed, and the rear brakes don`t come on, and the fuses are not blown, then I would replace the rear bulbs.

Low beams stopped working but all other lights work


Need to have an electrical shop determine what is wrong.

It could be a fuse for the low beam headlamps that has blown,
or a relay has been overheated.

Check that the bulbs for the low beam aren't blown out, possibly
simultaneously.

Braking lights and turn signals not working


Did you check the brake and signal light bulbs? If something happened that blew a fuse, chances are you probably lost some bulbs too. that should fix your problem

Low Beam headlight and front parking lights do not work


see for the head lamp relay fuse a few manufacturer install a typical fuses for seprately for relay so see weather the fuse are ok or not then see for wiring as far you mention that the wiring of right side went streached to the lower ball joint there is a possibality that wire's can break internally & may get shot circuited due to cross circuit & may cause this sort's of problem & if possible show it to highly experience person techanican, mechanic or an authorised dealer or service centre who can sortout you car problem untill then see you soon my friend
