2008 Ford Escape Brake Lights don't work and back turn signals

The brake lights don't work and upon inspection they don't seem to be blown. We checked the fuse at no. 6 and it was not blow either. The turn signals in the back stopped working but are not blown either. Signals flashes really fast and turn signals only work in the front.

If the signal flashes fast the circuit is not completing which can be caused by a bare wire, blown fuse, loose connector, or worn bulb socket. Try the following: 1. If the bulbs have a push in base, try tugging on the bulb a little and see if the light works. 2. Unplug and reseat the wire harness connectors to the tailight assembly. 3. Swap the fuse out. 4. Replace the bulbs.

Check the brake light switch. It’s located just behind the brake pedal

Sounds as if the bulbs are bad, but could also be a failed multi-purpose switch.

When this happens the problem is most likely the multi-funtion switch aka turn signal switch. Check to see if the 3rd brakelight comes on when the brake pedal is pushed. If so replace the MFS. The 3rd brakelight in late 80's fords bypasses the turnsignal switch.

Probably the turn signal switch assembly. This is a common problem with the older Fords. The switch is a self contained unit at a cost of about $100.00.

Check for a broken wire or loose connection at the multifunction switch. This can occur especially often if you use tilt steering. there is a few screws under the steering column shroud, unscrew the tilt wheel knob, you may vice grips to get it to unscrew. remove the shroud and check wiring and connections, remove the multifunction switch and make sure there are no wires loose in the connectors. If you have a wiring diagram you can jump the circuits at the connector, if no loose anything and you get lights to go on by jumping the switch, replace the multifunction switch (that's the lever on the left of the steering wheel, in case you were wondering)

Brake Lights don't work on the back of our 2003 Ford Windstar


Did you actually check the brake light switch for power in and out ?
There are two different fuses, one for each side. And the circuit includes the turn signal switch.
The third brake light bypasses the turn signals.

1995 Ford f250 brake lights don't work ad neither do the hazard flashers. I replaced the flasher node and the turn signals began to work but still no brake lights.


You may have a bad signal switch..Your brake lights run through the signal switch..Try hitting the brakes and move the switch around and see if your brake lights come on intermittently..

Brake lights don't work when headlights are on. When brake is pressed turn signals go fast and when brake is pressed when headlights are on they are so dim you can't see them plus turn signals...


{: ) Looks like your lightings got haywired. Have you had vehicle repairs recently? Anyway, it seems that you have poor grounding connections for the affected lightings. Some circuits share common ground, and ground terminals are strategically distributed on the vehicle. If these grounds don't have good contact with the body, chassis, or engine ground, circuit functions are badly affected. Thats why these ground points should be inspected and kept clean and tight, maintain that good wire and terminal contacts.
We can start with G100 located at the Left Front of the Engine Compartment on the left front body mount. See diagram below:


wyet_helps_24.gif Check out also G401 which is located in the chassis harness, mounted to the left rear Body mount. This ground point is shared by the rear lamps like the brakes, reverse, and rear signal lamps.
If possible check also other ground points that you may visually come across while on your search. Be sure also that fuses are all inspected good.
I hope we get lucky in finding and fixing a certain lamp function, if not all. Goodluck.
