I have a 98 Expedition. My Running lights work. And my 3rd brake light works but the other 2 side brake lights will not work. I tried everything. Brake light switch. Fuses ETC. Plus I have to shift into 1st and 2nd if I want to put it in drive. Any help???

I recently purchased a 1997 ford expedition and I thought that the brake light switch was bad. Not only did the brake lights not work but the gear shift lever would not shift unless you turned the key half way on and then put it in neutral in order to go into drive. Once I found that a wire had broken loose from the switch I rewired it and it then powered the gear shift without having to shift it in neutral in order to go into drive.
Thanks, exact thing in my 97f250,didn't no my lights weren't working, but had the shifter doing same thing. Looked down there and see that one wire has frayed of the plug that goes into switch. Hopefully its easy to rewire or is it just as easy to get new switch. Really need new plug part. Figure it out in morning, good post thanx
