    3rd brake light not working.

    Hello Isette Thanks for the response, yes it had passed an MOT the week before I bought it so thought it must not be required for that. Good idea regarding the voltage meter, I've not got one but I will put a call out to see if anyone I know has one. Yes they are 12v bulbs, I thought they should still work if one goes as I've seen that in other cars but it's good to have that confirmed. I had taken a quick look at the wires and from what I could see they looked ok but I will investigate this further.
  2. My partner has just bought a 2011 Ford KA studio. I noticed that one of the side brake lights and the 3rd brake light (strip) were not working. The side brake light just required a new bulb so fixing this issue was quite easy. The 3rd brake light seems a little more confusing. I took it out the 3rd brake unit noticed that there are 5 bulbs in it, all of which look like they are fine. If there is an issue with one of these bulbs would the other bulbs still work? I've ordered some new bulbs for this but I don't actually think that's the issue. I checked the connections on to the unit and there is no sign of rust or anything else that could be causing an issue. I took a look in the manual and checked all fuses that I thought could have anything to do with the brake lights and they are all fine. Having read a couple of other posts I believe there is a brake light switch near the peddles but I think if this had any issues it would affect all of the lights (don't know this for sure so please correct me if I'm wrong). Anyone got any idea what could be causing the issue and how to go about fixing it? Thanks
