I was just informed by Ford Service Dept. that the two brake lights won't power up due to a broken part that is no longer being manufactured by Ford. It is: F8RZ-14489-ZB -- where can I find a replacement part if Ford is no longer making it? Or can we use a similar part from a different Ford? Lights were fine going in for the inspection but then I was told bulbs were out, then it changed to that this part is bad. Car runs perfectly except for this issue as it won't pass inspection without the two brake lights. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
You can fabricate replacement connector by buying a universal Ford multipin connector through your dealor. Use a small hand coping saw to trim away outer plasic so that the terminals line up with the male pins on back side of the turn signal switch which powers the brake light circuit.
