I just purchased a Ford Fiesta 2006 mk5 with 160k km odo.
I knew there were fixes to make, but all seemed minor. I’ve fixed all of them except one thing: I can’t get the brake lights and reverse lights to work. When I bought it I assumed it just needed new bulbs or maximum change a fuse, but I’ve changed all bulbs and checked the fuse. I detached the brake switch over the brake pedal to see if it was broken but can’t see if it is.
Here’s what I know:
All bulbs are fine and should be working.
The fuses are fine.
The normal back lights are working and the rest of the lightning as well, it’s only the brake/stop lights and the reverse lights that are malfunctioning.
Like I wrote above, I’ve checked the brake switch but that wouldn’t explain the reverse lights.
When I open the light where all the rear lights are located there’s some dirt and damp close to the wires but all the wires are enclosed, so they shouldn’t be harmed by that.
I appreciate all help you can give me.
Thanks in advance
