Re: Light problems

Brake lights might be the brake light switch on the pedal..............try disconnectin the wiring plug and shorting the terminals out if they work its the switch

If they dont then check the earths at the back lights and the wiring loom to the boot lid in case theres a broken shorting wire

Re: Light problems

Sounds like a dodgy earth to me.

This was a standard feature on 1980's Fords.

Re: Light problems

Na....I'd go with Speedys suggestion. A broken/chaffed wire or wires in the rubber hose bit that runs from the bootlid to the car body (on the left hand side of the bootlid when you open it).
