I hope that someone can help me... I have a '93 Mercury Sable and I used my e-brake the other night and yesterday my rear tire was locked. Everyone tells me that its just frozen, but I know nothing about cars and I have to fix this asap. I got under the car and tried to get all the snow and ice off. Then I sprayed some WD-40 around. My friend tried to take it on the road to loosen it and it seemed to work, until she pulled back into the driveway. Now its locked again.

DTC P1342: Camshaft position inactive. Probable cause:
1. Sensor faulty
2. Connector terminal contact damaged or corroded
3. Wire harness fault. Check for correct voltage, open, short to ground, short to voltage
4. Control unit software update needed
5. Faulty PCM or ECM
Used tires sometimes are used for a reason. Also make sure your brakes are releasing completely (especially the emergency brake)...sometimes over-tightening wheels on to the disc brakes can cause excessive noise.
Hello, Most likely you have broken Emergency brake pads trapped inside the inner rear Rotor or drum. There is also a possibility that a rear wheel bearing has collapsed especially if you have heard a whining noise while driving.
Since the Sable is a Front-wheel drive vehicle, the rear wheels have few parts. This will not cost as much to fix. The rear rotor/drum will need to be removed and the defective parts replaced. The rear rotor/drum will probably be bad along with needing pads or bearings.
The other rear wheel should be checked for damage too. I hope my solution is helpful to you.
MERCURY SABLE , manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with
SUSPENSION:FRONT . AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS, VEHICLE SWAYS AND VEERS
EXCESSIVELY IN MODERATE CROSSWINDS. *AK.Vehicle Identification Number
(VIN):1MEHM55S31A. MERCURY SABLE 2001 problem was reported in ANDOVER,
MA. Original Owner. Vehicle was purchased on 20000901. Vehicle was
using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES.Vehicle was using Cruise Control.MERCURY SABLE
2001 drive type:FWD. FUEL SYSTEM:N/A. FUEL TYPE: GAS. VEHICLE SPEED: 65
Basically this means that the vehicle's speed as read by the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not working properly.
Symptoms of a P0500 DTC may include: * loss of anti-lock brakes * the "anti-lock" or "brake" warning lamps on the dash may be lit * the speedometer or odometer may not work properly (or at all) * your vehicle's RPM limiter may be decreased * the shifting of an automatic transmission may become erratic * other symptoms may also be present
Causes: A code P0500 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: * The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not reading (functioning) properly * There is a broken/frayed wire leading to the vehicle speed sensor * The vehicle's PCM is not correctly configured for the actual tire size on the vehicle
Possible Solutions: The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back. Next, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the speed sensor. The location of the sensor depends on your vehicle. The sensor could be on the rear axle, transmission, or perhaps the wheel hub (brake) assembly.
If the wiring and connectors are OK, then check the voltage at the speed sensor. Again, the exact procedure wil depend on your make and model of vehicle.
It could be an out of balance tire or it could be a bent wheel. Rub your hand over the surface of the tire. If it's been out of balance, it will feel out of round and choppy. When the tire is changed the installer can check the wheel to make sure it's not bent. If it's been bouncing for a while it can wear out the shock prematurely as well Start with the tire balance...it may need a new tire to solve the noise and vibrations.
actually theres a special tool that connects to an air pump hose that expands the caliper back but you can use a vise if your very careful with pressing it back or locking clamp that you can use like a vise but this requires hand presure loosen bleed screw then use the vise
