Rear blinkers and brake lights on 2001 ford focus not working

\015 I've got a 2001 Ford Focus SE 4 door. The rear blinkers and the rear brake lights are not working. The brake light on the middle of the trunk is working. The front blinkers work, but are going faster than normal. The rear light turns on when I turn on my headlights. I've changed the bulbs and I've checked all of the fuses. They all look fine. Any suggestions?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Ice, you have a ground problem. Grounds for the back lights are on the drivers side. Follow the harness. Grounds come out of it and bolt to the body. Is not the turn signal switch.
I have this same problem on my 2007 Ford Focus right now. The blinkers work sometimes. The "door ajar" alarm will come on while you're driving and the door locks will lock and unlock themselves when this happens and now the brake lights won't work. The fuses are fine, bulbs are fine. We replaced the turn signal switch because lots of people said that was the problem with their vehicle. It still doesn't work- neither the blinkers, nor the brake lights. What do I check for now? Any help would be appreciated.

Suddenly both brake lights went out on my 2001 Ford Focus SE (although the top trunk brake light works). All other rear lights work. I did all the obvious things. I checked the fuse (#54), checked the bulbs (both filaments are fine), and took out the pedal switch, jumped the lead with a wire and the top trunk light worked (as it does when I depress the pedal. However, neither of the side brake lights work.

I have a 1990 full size ford Bronco. The rear right turn signal went out and I replaced in and it still did not work but the rest of the turn signals worked. I then took it to a shop and they looked at it for twenty minutes and could not figure it out. When I got home the rear tail lights brake lights , turn signals (all one multifunctial bulb) would not work and also the back up lights. Also the front blinkers will not work now. I have tried the fuze and that is not the problem. I don't think

All lights work except rear brake lights. The brake light in the window works. Flashers work, blinkers, taillights. Already checked fuses, brake pedal switch, bulbs. Friend took wire from middle brake light and spliced into it and made all brake lights work. Problem was didn't check blinkers etc before leaving. Now if brake pedal is applied and you turn on blinkers they come on like hazard lights, if you just turn on blinkers its like they barely have power, dim. Sometimes when using blinker wit
