OT-Brake Lights
[Return to Topics]

I have a 1999 Ford F250 SD, power stroke. This morning I took a tool out of the tool box mounted in the back of the truck, I turned back to see the brake lights were on. I removed the fuse to the brake light, still on. Removed the brake light switch, the lights were still on (both sides). The only way to get the lights off is to disconect both batterys.

Anybody have any ideal where to start or how to fix this?

Check the turn signal switch. Think the brake light switch feeds into and throught the t/s switch then out to the brake/turn bulb elements. Believe it's the only common element in a properly working system.

Have you tried switching the 4-way flasher button "ON" and then "OFF"?

>>>>>>> Anybody have any ideal where to start or how to fix this?<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Yes,Ofcourse...A wireing diagram that is of that same vehicle. But you could do more checks.This happens with no other lights on? Then look for a hot wire connected with the.. Oh,,Yes,,You do have the two wire brake system? If you do,Then you can likely go under the dash.FUN! BUT ,If you completely unhooked the brake light switch wire supply..Then the problem is in the rear of the cab,,TRAILER LIGHT/BRAKE wireing is often a big problem. Where they insert to factory wires.

Ok,,While you guys are thinking on this.We bbought a very late model Int. truck 2 ton.Int diesel. One brake light wont allow voltage.The pair of brake wires enter the cab in diffrent colors but buh become orange at the plug out. I dont want to get under the dash unless i know I have a diagram. I forget the year of manufacture.Its out there in the dark now.
