Mk3 mondeo: Chris, have just been reading through a previous

Customer Question

Hi Chris, have just been reading through a previous thread you wrote up on a ford focus with brake lights not working.
i have a mk3 mondeo auto (2004) which i have been fault finding,
i have a similar problem in that the interlock for the park / gear selector is always engaged, on inspection of wiring diagram i traced it to common line with the brakes, which are not working, have checked the fuse and it is blown, replaced and re - blown, currently have the wiring loom exposed and it looks to be an earth fault at either the loom before the connectors to the rear lights but have not yet pulled out the fuse box.
wondering if you can go through your process with me and ill start back at the top to see if i am missing anything in my thought process. just fyi this car is RHD not LHD as im in New Zealand. cheers, brendan
