Question about Cars & Trucks
The high mounted light works and the turn signals work. In addition to the switch, I replaced all the bulbs. Any ideas?

If the fuse for the brake lights is good, I would suspect a broken wire or defective turn signal/multi function switch. The main brake light circuit usually runs through the signal switch assembly. The high mount brake light is on a seperate circuit

Testimonial: "Hello - You are correct, it was the turn signal switch. I guess because the brakes use the same bulb as the turn signals, they must route the brake light circuit through the turn signal switch - but not for the high mounted light, which was still functioning. It didn't make sense that I replaced the brake switch and the bulbs since the brake switch seemed to be working and the bulbs were lighting up when the directional signals were on but it was a cheap start. This Transit has been nothing but headaches. Ugh!"
Sorry but ford connect is a europeon model and as such is wired up different to a american vehicle ,which is not legal in europe and would have to be rewired ,right pull the plug out of the brake light switch and using a paper clip or a oddment of wire ,push into the connector plug coming from the loom ,if no stop lights then check for a feed to the connector plug ,most likely cause is a fuse but if no high stop light fitted then it wouldnt surprise me if the builbs have failed wouldnt be the first time ,,,this is caused by people sitting at traffic lights with foot on brake and holding clutch down in gear ,,,neutral foot off clutch and handbrake onis the way i was taught 50yrs ago ,when cars were made of metal and no fancy electronics .
