Sounds like the computer is not powering the fan relay when the engine reaches 220 degrees. You might want to jumper the temp sensor to see it it will trigger the relay. You may need a scanner to monitor the data signal from the temp sensor.
As for the brake warning light, it can be from low brake fluid or the parking brake not being released. Either sensor or switch could have failed.

Ford e250 brake lights stay on


If the lights only stay on when key is in ignition, your central brake lights (or one of the lights) are out. The other lights stay on as a warning that the centrals(or other brake light/s) are needing replaced.

My tailkights are not working at all. My Park in the car is stuck and won;t come down with motor started.


turn engine off. Turn key to OFF position, (no lights on dash lit). Step on brake, pull shift lever to neutral. start car, put in drive and go. this is emergency bypass.

When the key is ON, the shift lock soneoid is engaged and won't release till the brake is applied. Since you don't have brake lights, it means the solenoid won't unlock.
check for a blown fuse or a bad brake switch on the brake pedal.

OFF is the first click clockwise from LOCK. it goes, LOCK, OFF, ON, START.

The brake lights on a 2003 liberty dont work but the top one does


Double filiments in the brake light bulbs allow brake lights and turn signals to work, it"s possible both your brake light bulbs are burned out even though your turn signal lights still work. The top brake light still works which means electricity is reaching the brake lights.

1966 mustang sequential turn/tail/brake lights/signals are ALIVE!


Recheck ALL the wiring, check the brake light switch and signal switch. Either on could have gone bad due to its age. Them suspect the controller for the lights. What do the 4 ways do? I think I would be suspecting the signal switch.

The EPC In my 02 bug is on and it wont shift out of park. whats going on?


Hello glitzandg252...This has been a problem for many VW owners.
Brake Light Switch Malfunction is the cause of it. In fact VW has issued a recall for the defective brake switch here's the info:

Recall 04V096000: Brake Light Switch Malfunction

DEFECT: The brake light switch on these vehicles may malfunction. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative, or come on and stay on, even though the vehicle is parked.

REMEDY: Dealers will replace these switches. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during April 2004. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.

Give them a call and see if your vehicle is included in the recall, you will need the VIN number.

In the mean time ...|VW Roadside Assistance has a technique that will get you by until you can get repairs done.... Here's the technique:

1. Turn off the ignition.
2. Press the brake pedal 5 times, and on the 5th, keep your foot on the brake and start the car.
3. Let it run 5 seconds, and turn it off.
4. With your foot still on the brake, turn the ignition key 1/4 forward
5. Shift to a position between N & D
6. Now start the car. Shift to D. It what you really want to do is back out, shift from D to R.

Good luck...i hope this helps. Please take time to rate my response a FIXYA...
