Re: reverse lights

have you fitted any gear( sterio amps ,etc ) in the boot lately .
a squashed wire or a screw through a wire is pretty common.

Re: reverse lights

OK... i guess you are in america.

the BOOT is that normally empty space between the back seat and the tail lights that you guys call a trunk.

people often install their amps, etc , there and in the proccess manage to damage the factory wireing loom behind the trim panels.

if the car is an `04 model , wouldnt it still be under warranty.
take it back to ford and tell them to fix it.
