Check the fuse, bulbs/assy., and wiring another thing to check is where the bulbs connect. sometimes like my 94 one of the connectors in the bulb housing was broken. also there is a brake light sensor on the brake petal that is turned on when you depress the brake. usually near the top of the brake petal

UNDER the dash, on the steering column and it makes contact with the brake pedal It looks like a bracket, that wraps around the brake pedal arm, and it has a cylinder type switch that makes contact with the brake pedal arm. When the brake pedal is pressed down it pushes the cylinder switch together which closes the circuit and makes you brake lights come on. It may be a fuse or wires but start with the switch.

The switch is attached to the brake pedal itself. An energized pole goes into the switch, and, when it makes contact, the circuit is closed, allowing power to be transmitted to the brake lights.

Power is bleeding across the electrical ground from the brake to the tail circuits. Take the rear lights apart. Wirebrush the contacts and where they ground to the body. Put dielectric grease on the contacts when you put the bulbs back in.

Im not to sure on this year. Hope this helps you some.

How do you switch off daytime running lights on a 2003 cobra mustang?

If you pull the parking brake up the running lights will go off - if not - start the car with the parking brake on and that should work, if you want to drive with the running lights off - you can get away with "slightly" putting the parking brake on (just so the parking brake light goes on in the dash but the brakes itself makes no contact) Otherwise you can remove the relay that controls the daytimes - maybe even a fuse

Look up under your dash where the brake pedal is attached, you will see a switch that makes the brake lights turn on when you step on the pedal and off when you leave off the pedal.

It can if it is a dual filament bulb as found on most US. makes. The brake light filament can short over to the tail light filament inside the bulb and when the brakes light is activated, all the tail lights and front marker lights will light also, probably blowing fuses.
