Replace the rear abs speed sensor located top of the rear differential. 90% of the time this will resolve the problem as this is a very simple system not much to it. The sensors are cheap about $20.00

Hand brake light on dash of my 1983 FJ40 will not turn off

Hi. Look at the brake master cylinder. See if the brake fluid is low. If there is a wire and a connector on the side of the reservoir, this is the 'fluid-height sensor' when the fluid is low (as the brakes wear, the fluid level drops proportionally), the fluid level is below the sensor, and creates a circuit, thusly illuminating the light.

I have a 2002 Four Winds Motorhome with a 2001 ford Chassis. Since 2005 I have been having problems with "intermittent brake dragging" When we are traveling for no reason at all the brakes begin to drag...

This is going to be one of those Gremlins you have to be there to catch. Here are a few possibilities.
1. There is usually an adjustment rod before the brake booster. It gives you "play" before the booster engages. It may be hanging.
2. There is a porportionating valve in the lines which may be hanging up.
3. The type of Brake fluid may be wrong for the heat an RV produces. The expanding fluid may be locking the brakes.
4. The brake lines made of Rubber may be twisted when they were replaced each time.
5. The Calipers may be locking up. They are inspected but not usually replaced when the brake pads and rotors are done. Check your bills.
6. If stranded again, jack up RV to see if all 4 wheels are locked or which wheels are the problem.
7. Check to see if Emergency brakes are OK. The rear rotors have drums behind the rotors. Any good brake shop should have checked them the first time.
8. Let me know what you found. Good Luck

How to remove a front brake hose for 1985 chevy 1/2 ton truck

You will find the clip for the front brake hose inside the frame.
Remove it and pull the hose out to remove it from the steel brake line.
The other end will have 2 gaskets at the caliper above and below the hose connection.
Once the new hose has been the bleeder on the caliper and remove all air as fluid flows into the new parts.
Only new fresh brake fluid should be added to the master cylinder to replace lost fluid.
Do not expose brake fluid to air for long will absorb moisture.
You may have to bleed the other front caliper to restore a firm brake pedal.
After your repair hold the brake pedal down for a few should not drop down.....and also inspect for leaks before moving the vehicle.
