Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

Check the wiring to that socket. Possibly a wire broke or bad bulb socket. The license plate light is only a splice from the tail light wires, so if both or all tail lights work from the park/headlight switch, the tag light problem is right there at the rear. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check for power to the bulb socket with the park lights on.

there are screws that connect the outer portion of the fender (the black painted part) to a black plastic piece underneath the car and going up into the wheel well. From the point where it goes from horizontal (ahead of the wheel well) to vertical, remove three screws in both directions. You may have to get a pair of locking pliers (vise-grips) to start them. Once removed you can lay on the ground and look up into the space where the light is. You can twist and remove to replace the bulb, and it also looks like there's enough room to get tools up in there if you have to replace the lens.

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

SOURCE: no heat in 99 ford windstar
Check the coolant level. If it's low, what you describe will happen. There is not sufficient coolant to flow through the heater core at idle. At 60mph the water pump is spinning quickly, managing to get some coolant through the heater core, so you get heat until the rpm's drop at idle. If it is due to low level, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again, as you may have a leak.
