I have a focus Lx 2003 auto, the rear near side brake light is non operational when brake depressed, but the tail lights are not affected, I have replaced the bulbs still the same result, any help much appreciated.

Thanks,

Rich.

It would be worth checking the fuses as the brake lights are fused individually

Thanks for your post stef123, I'll certainly try the fuse and see if I can resolve the problem. Rich.

The brake lights are fed from one fuse -F54 (15A) in the glove box panel so you're best off checking the bulb holder for corrosion and the wiring for breaks and shorting.

Stoney871, thank you for your post, indeed I'll have a root around and see what gives. Rich.
