SOURCE: Brake lights

I have a 98 and had the same problem just today, I found the problem by looking up where the pedal goes to and you will see two switches that the pedal hits when released, its the switch on the left side of the car, you will notice two (well one is prolly missing since the lights wont go off) blueish rubber pads on the brake pedal that hit the switches. since the one that goes to the switch to turn the lights off is gone go out and buy a small plastic body push screw to insert in the hole the old pad was in. there ya go all fixed

SOURCE: 98 Ford Explorer No Brake Lights

There should be some adjustment on it, if not replace it, it's about a $12 item.

SOURCE: How do I adjust the parking brake?

Loosen the cable nut at the rear brake, pull the cable until the tension is tight, then tighten the cable nut. Since the parking brake only operates on the rear brakes, your rear pads may be too worn causing the parking brake not to hold. Check the pads first to see if they need to be replaced. Also, the parking brake cable can stretch or break over time. Verify that isn't case since you may need to install a new cable rather than adjust it.

SOURCE: 98 Ford Explorer Brake lights not working,top brake light does

I had a similar problem like this with my 98 explorer once; neither brake lights worked and the top one stayed on very dimly at all times. It turns out both of my brake lights went bad at exactly the same time, which for some reason made the top light stay on. Felt like an idiot, but all I needed to do was change the bulbs.

Parking brake will not keep car from moving.


May be the rear brakes need adjusting,or the park brake cable needs tightened. If you leave it in park ,running,step on the brake ,notice how far the pedal travels,then apply the e brake.Step on the brakes again,if the pedal is firmer,the rear brakes need adjusted.If there is no difference the cable needs tightened

2000 ford taurus stuck in park


You have a shift interlock cable that is suppose to release the shifter when you depress the brake pedal, it sounds like there might be a problem with the interlock cable or the interlock solenoid.

2000 ford explorer linkage cable . Can it be ajusted ?


same problem with my 1998 Ford Expedition, there was a lot of free play on the shift gear handle and therefore had trouble finding the gears, all of them. I looked under the the steering wheel or steering column (by the top of the brake pedal) and found that there were two screws loose, about to fall off actually, tighten both of them up and now is as good as when I drove it off the lot. Hope this helps.

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer that will not shift into park with the brake pedal pressed.


The Mustang driver has the answer to the problem. There is a switch on the brake pedal, which must be engaged before the shifter will move out of Park.
