I have a 2013 Ford Focus SE and was told by a motorcyclist

Customer Question

Hi Chris. I have a 2013 Ford Focus SE and was told by a motorcyclist that ran into the back of my car today that I have no brake lights. I checked the 'Stop Light Switch' fuse and that is ok. I dont see any fuse specifically labeled "Brake Lights" or Tail Lights". the third brake light does not illuminate, but with the key out of the ignition, the bottom tail lights illuminte when the drivers door is open. HELP!!

Check these and report back on the results, at the BPP switch on the brake pedal.

One green/red wire is all the time powered from fuse 21 under the hood.

The other green/red wire is powered with the brake pedal pressed.

Black/gray ground

violet/white, grounded when the pedal is not pressed, and not grounded when the pedal is pressed.
