Question about 2008 Mercury Mountaineer
Your brake lights are on a live switch , they will go on when the key is off. so if they are on, your battery will eventually go dead.
now on the pedal there is a switch so when you push the brake the light is activated and so is the actual brake. Check and make sure it is still near the pedal top and can be activated with the pedal down .some are reverse switched down is not making contact and so is tripped and others is brake pedal arm is down toching the button depressing it and making contact. contact your local parts store see what parts they have for your make and model. DONT BUY anything. just see how you switch is suppose to work then you'll know how to test it. if your not sure even call them or any parts store and ask how to test them . they love to share information. which makes them even more valued. Your Cruise wont work because of your brake switch deal. it thinks that you on the brake. Good thing too. Going down the highway cruise on....tap brakes and cruise keeps right on going. that would be very bad. Nothing to do with the battery. just that its a casuality of the brake issue.
