My back break lights stop working when I push on the breaks.

Customer Question
My back break lights...

My back break lights stop working when I push on the breaks. I changed the bulbs and everything else works the turning signals etc but when I press on the breaks it don't work. Im trying to see if their is a fuse that controls this.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

Yes its good

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2003 Lincoln Navigator

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Navigator yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm just trying to trouble shoot the things that I can before I have to take it to my mechanic. The lights I thought could be a simple fix.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The break light is the only and main issue right now. I don't want to get a ticket

Look under the hood and find the fuse box. Pull the fuse out that is marked F1.5 and see if the fuse is broken in the middle.

Before I do that. The fuse box diagram has numbers. Would you happen to know which number that fuse is under?

Ahhh you do know that they are different amps?
Lincoln Mechanic: Kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 7 months ago

Yes, but it is the best fuse to use for now just for testing.
