Code C1226 brake lamp indicator short circuit to ground
2000 FORD E-SERIES VAN
Pulled codes would kind of like a starting point or some guidance in the right direction so I am not looking in the wrong place or not putting a bunch of parts on this van.
have the same problem?

Code indicates the low brake fluid warning light is indicating. Did you check the brake fluid level?

This can be a shorted power wire to one of the lights or a light bulb has had a problem in the socket maybe. Please remove the brake light bulbs to inspect. Here is the brake light wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works.
Check out the diagrams (Below)
Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

Yep you where right one of the light sockets melts and messed up the contacts so I replaced it and it works great!
