well ,it could be several things, i have heard of things like a varmit or animal eating away at the wires of a car or a shorted-circuit, blown fuse or fuse circuit.. but most often it as simple as a brake-switch gone bad...it is located most often just under the brake pedale in most vehicles. and usaually is less then $10 simple to replace. The BIG question, does your third brake light still work? If it does, check your turn signal switch. Primary brake lights are wired through the turn singal switch in order to cancel the break light when a turn singal is activated. I have never replace a turn singal switch on a Ford Focus so you should consult a repair manual on the proper procedure of replacing this switch, if it is deemed defective.
The screws that hold the rear lights in place on a focus are inside behind the rear pillar trim
Check your brake pads.
Fuse number 54
its a 2001 ford focus 1.6 petrol
Check brake lights--if they do not work shift interlock will not release
From inside the luggage compartment.
Yes, it has brake lights.
Running lights (left side): Fuse #47 -- Running lights (right side): Fuse #48 -- Brake lights: Fuse #54. Fuse panel is on the lower left side (underneath) the dashboard. NOTE: If it is your brake lights that are not working and fuse # 54 looks okay, check the brake light switch, it may have gone bad.
Yes they indeed have brake lights...
A Ford Focus fuse diagram will show the placement of all fuses for the vehicle including the brake and headlights, the interior lights, and the dashboard lights. This diagram is generally located on the inside cover of the fuse box.
Then the brake lights are out but the middle one still lights up. (:
check the fuse, brake lights have their own, & check the brake switch at the top of the brake pedal
are you sure it is the brake lights and not the tail lights. if it is the brake lights you most likely have a short some where. go to a auto eletrican It is the brake lights which turn on. Short in the switch or the wiring?
on the brake pedal under the dash is a brake light switch. that when you depress the brake it turns your lights on. you might wanna check that
No , the rear brake lights do not turn on when you use your parking brake , just the brake light on your dash is supposed to come on
they are not brake lights they are fog lights and they turn on because it is for the car behind to see you
The brake light switch might not be connected properly. Remove the brake light switch for 10 seconds and replace it to its original position.
Are you sure you need the fuse for the cruise control. My cruise control wasn't working, neither were my brake lights. All 7 bulbs were burnt out. When the brake lights were replaced the cruise control worked.
the brake lights are on a separate cuircut,if your brake lights are staying then it will be a fault with the brake light switch. the switch is located under dash,and will be on or very close to brake pedal.
The brake lights and the tail lights are separate circuits. Check the brake light fuse, then check the brake light bulbs, then check the brake light switch.
Check the switch on the brake pedal
Brake lights draw their energy from the vehicle's battery.
Are both your brake lights blowing out? If it affects only one light: it could be a bad light socket, or a pinched or frayed wire that is shorting out.
Info should be in your owner's manual. If you don't have one you will have to be more specific. What year? What model?
Brake lights are on continuously while you are driving. Every time the brake pedal is depressed.
