Had this problem paid 300 dollars to have it fixed, was told there was a "short " somewhere in the doors. This worked all of 2 weeks, fixed it myself after searching online for a couple of hours. It is the turn signal that needs to be replaced. Yes, the little thing that you use for turn signals/hazards lights, it's all one piece and easy to change, not rocket science. Ford Contours are notorious for this. I hope this helps somebody to not get ripped off by some shifty mechanic. == == Get yourself a 12 volt circuit tester with a sharp end. Have someone depress brake and then get under car and probe into the wires near the brake lights. Look at the color code of the wires going into the brake light and continue probing back into this color wire until you find the area that is causing the problem. I would really check around the junction connector near the rear bumper for corrosion.I hope this helps you.
have you checked the fuses?
When your tail lights are out you can simply replace them. If they continue to blow, you may have an electrical problem.
dome lights do not work. checked the fuse which is ok. checked the bulbs which are also ok. where is the problem
checked fuses, or checked for voltage to interior light socket?
check all of the fuses.if they are ok, check the bulbs. If ok, have the headlight switch checked out. My dad has a 95 contour that had the same problem the tail lights and interior lights went out. There was some switch( I believe under the dash) that controled it, that had to be replaced by ford. I found this question actually looking for it because I had the same problem with my 93 Ford Probe. I tried everything. Changed fuses in car, checked bulbs, checked wiring, changed the brake light switch. Nothing worked. Finally figured out it was VERY simple problem!!! It was a fuse under the hood. There's a fuse box under there that I didn't even know of for a while. When I changed it I didn't even know if that was it and IT WAS. Now my dashlights and tail lights work. GOOD LUCK!!
I have no dash lights or gage lights that come on in my 1982 corvette, what could be the problem ? i checked all fuses.
blowen fuse oh and check the bulbs I have the same problem with mine, I checked the bulbs and checked the fuses and they still dont work
It sounds as if you have an electrical problem that needs to be checked. You may even have the wrong fuse for your brake lights.
Have your alternator checked out.
i checked the fuses and don't know if this is the problem---should i lood for somethin else?
Check the bulbs to see if they are shot. If that does not resolve the problem check the fuse. If that does not resolve the problem take it to a mechanical and have it checked for wiring problems.
Can you please restate your question because I have no idea what is your problem.
there could be a bad ground for the lights, or there is a short somewhere between your fuse panel and your light
That means that the ABS computer has detected an electrical malfunction, usually a sensor problem. You need to have it checked for codes.
Try the light bulb.
Not exactly sure on the Windstar, but recently had the same question for a Contour: try pulling on the lightswitch. Note: the fog lights on the Contour can only be turned on when the headlights are on.
No the head lights are designed different from 95-97 to 98-00.
The taillight housiong on these trucks have a known problem. On the backside of the taillight housing is a circuitboard. They go bad.
You have a charging system problem, have the alternator checked
I am not sure on a ford but i had about the same problem on a GM car i had and it was the turn signal switch i replaced it and all the brake lights worked fine you might try that
Check the brake switch under your pedal (which needs to be pushed when the brake pedal is depressed). This is what the problem was on my friends Sentra. As long as you have checked the lights and fuses, this should do it.
Brake lights and tail lights. (Unless you have a spotter telling you of course)
This could be caused by a malfunctioning fuse. fuses will need to be checked. the light bulbs within the tail lights wil need to be checked. the switch under the brake pedal will need to be check to make sure it it activating properly. if all else fails it could be a wire problem and your wire system will need to be checked
