Brake/tail Light Issue


Recommended Posts

Hi I have just brought a focus 1.8 Zetec 2001 mk1

I'm having an issue with my tail lights when I turn them on my central brake light is on dim

When I break my tail lights go off and my central light illuminates but my side break lights don't come on

I have chased the earth and every connection seems good

Any ideas??

All help with be gratefully recieved

so the earth connections are both good?

If so, then you need to track for a short circuit. The best place to look is the rubber conduit leading to the boot lid. The wires get fragile and can break easily.

checking continuity across the live wires can help ID shorts too, as can isolating each side from the battery, just eliminate one thing at a time until you get the problem. youll need a multimeter though!
