My 92 Tempo has no brake lights besides the top one. All the bulbs are
good. A relay (part #F19B9345A2A) has fallen out of the dash and was
found on the floor. Ok, so plug it back in.. only problem is, I can't
see where it goes!
I've pulled the panel below the steering column as far out as I can and
still I don't see any place where this box should go. As it literally
fell out while driving it must go up there somewhere!
If anyone knows where the relay that controls the brake lights belongs
I'd be glad to hear it.
Any help appreciated!
sure it's not just a regular switch? if so it's pressed by the brake pedal
arm, just start looking up from the brake. I believe my bird used a switch
wthat worked by kind of a curved rocker mechanism, which I spent alot of
time and irritation getting bent and mounted right to actuate the brake
light properly. Brake lights are one thing that's a pain to check by
yourself while your upside down under the dash, banging your head on the
steering wheel over and over..lol
I found the part on Napa's site. It is a relay. It has a clip on it
so it was once mounted to another plastic part. Finding that part is
what I can't seem to do!
I agree.. working under the dash is a pain. Alas, if I were only 20
years younger! :)
I was just going to mention that. That relay is pretty much a generic Ford
used all over the car. Like Bill said, look near the fuse block as they get
taller drivers, and on the other side of the column as theres a couple there. I
remember a relay in the brake lamp circuit though. If the high mount lamp is
this often points to a problem in the multi- function switch (turn signal
