I had the exact same problem with my 2000 Focus Wagon and all 9 wires were bared with 1 being totally broken. Wrapped everything with electrical tape and fixed broken wire by adding a new piece with joiners. A bit tricky tucking everything back in with the tape on it but managed to make it work. All is good again. Thanks everyone for the great input.

Just found this thread and forum and it already saved me time and money. Thanks for the help.
The hatch is infamous for breaking the wires because of the bending and opening/closing.
Good too see some new guys pop up here, hopefully we can help you out more, if you need it.

Had same systems, brake lights staying on while in gear but no third light, although 2 side brake lights worked while in park. All 5 bulbs burned out in 3rd light. Replaced them with 2825 bulbs and everything works fine
