My name is ***** ***** I will try to assist you. What do you mean all the bulbs light? The parking lights come on or they are really bright like the brake light is on? If they come on normal, try changing the light bulbs. They are 2 filament bulbs and when one side burns out, you lose the turn signal, brake light side of the bulbs. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service.

when the headlights are on, both rear lamp assemblies light and look the same. however when you step on the brake only one side gets brighter the other side doesn't.

I cannot imagine that the filament is burned out on all three light bulbs at the same time.
Ford Mechanic: Jeremy, Certified Diesel Technician/Electrician replied 3 years ago
Does the front turn signal work like normal? If not, the flasher relay is bad. Otherwise, if the front is owrking, then there might be a plug issue at that lamp. I have had all 3 burn out at the same time on me before. There is a voltage spike and it knocked all three out. I have even had one go out and the other 2 not work because of the inside light being bad. What I mean by inside, the one closest to the license plate. It gets the power first and then the next and the next. Like Christmas lights on a string. When one goes out, all go out. That is what I meant by the filamnet on the bulbs. Remove the inside bulb, the one closest to the plate, and see if it is burnt out.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
