None of the brake lights on my EF Fairmont light up. The fuse is fine, & I doubt all three globes have died at once. I can't think of what else could cause a problem? Does anyone know?

Brake switch for your brake pedal. It's a small black micro switch (from memory, been a while since I had an EF).

Common problem......happy reading :P

Brake switch, about 15 bucks, 5 minutes to fit, no tools needed! 8-) Don't buy from Ford....
