Lost brake and hazard lights

I have lost brake and hazard lights on my 2000 Georgetown. Has a 1999 Ford F550 chassis. Any ideas?

Are you sure about your chassis?
Most are F53 chassis.
F550 is usually a custom order pickup.

No I am not 100% sure it is a F550. That is what the Ford dealer told me it was. It is 35ft.

You need a new dealer.

Do you have a 12v test light? turn hazards on and check for power at your rear light sockets, thats a start. can also check brake light fuse and flasher relay

Brake and hazard are the same circuit and bulb filaments. You didn't mention turn signals - they should both be out, also. It's unlikely that both bulbs went out at the same time, but maybe they went separately and you didn't notice until the second one went.. Fuse is a good possibility, I think the same fuse controls both circuits. Do tail lights work? Weak ground at the light fixture can also keep the brake lights from working because they draw more power. I don't believe a bad flasher module would keep the brake lights from working.

Emergency flasher

Locate and check out the emergency flasher. I don't know where yours is, but should be under the dash near the steering column.

Not long ago my emergency flashers would not work and after troubleshooting some it turned out to be that turn signal flasher. I tried an aftermarket "universal" replacement and it just didn't fit where it was supposed to and I didn't want to deal with modifying things. I went to my local Ford dealer and took the bad one with me. Looked up and ordered. Couple of days later I had a new relay and the flashers worked again.


You might check here on goggle and see if this helps any.

Found out the problem was a fuse. Fuse looked good but was not. Now have a multimeter on RV

Excellent!
A multimeter is one of the more useful tools in the box.
