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!!
The backup lights are a different bulb, then the turn signals and brake lights and The Number 1 reason would be that the bulbs are burned out and need replaced. Good Luck and Remember.Change Your Mind, Not Your Oil.Use the First In Synthetic Motor Oil's.See My Bio For Information & Contact Details.
Check the switch on the brake pedal
brake switch ???
Most likely no brake lights would be due to a faulty switch on the brake pedal or a bad fuse.
If your question is "What would I conserve by turning off lights and fans?", the answer is electricity.
Blown fuse or bad brake light switch?
brake light switch would be most common cause
The BOO (Brake On/Off) Switch may need to be replaced. If it is bad, it would cause the brake lights to NOT illuminate when the brake pedal is applied.
check the fuse for the brake lights, they have thier own. also check the brake light switch at the at the top of the brake petal
