Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab
2000 ford ranger 4.0 V6..XLT..Just recently I have been having a problem with my emergency brake light staying on and flickering. The light go's off after awhile. The brake it self seems to pull, I can really tell that it is pulling now that there is some snow on the ground, and when i give it gas, the rear wants to pull. There is no god awful sound, no issued backing up or driving foward, other then that pulling / restraining. When i get out and check to see if their is any smoking or fire or anything like that, I just notice that the passanger rear brake drum is hot, when i go and touch it. Then i go over to the drivers side rear and that is cold, so i know it is on the passanger side. It is a Minnesota truck with no rust, almost 109,000 miles on it, no other problems with it.
Anyone know of any issues, or fixes for this problem..
Crawl under it and check that cable. See if it tighter than the other side and has free play. It could need adjusting, or oiling. If you can't find anything. Pull the brake drum. Check the springs and all the moving parts. And one more thing, your automatic adjuster might have over tightened that side.
