Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab

1 Answer

Emergency brake light won't go off

I have a 2000 F150 extended cab and the emergency brake light has come on and won't go off. I can push down the emergency brake foot lever and then release it and the light continues to stay on. Occasionally the truck shutters when ideling or starting up. I am not sure if these two problems are connected or are from different sources. Please help me figure out what this is.

This light will also illuminate if you have a hydraulic concern such as low brake fluid level in the master cylinder.

Extended cab Tahoe truck, 4.3l. Why is brake light on I/P dimly lit?


Possible brake fluid level warning sensor problem in the master cylinder. Disconnect the wiring harness from the sensor in the master cylinder. If the light goes out, suspect the sensor. If the light continues to illuminate dimly, suspect a short to power in the harness on that circuit. Further diagnostics will be required to locate the problem

Check the wear on all of your brake pads. If that is not it then look at the emergency brake switch on the back side of the emergency brake, it may be stuck or need adjusting.

When the vehicle is not moving set the emergency brake and release the brake all the way to its off position. It sounds like your emergency brake is on or the emergency brake switch is not disengaging.

Emergency brake light stays on the dash. is it a troubleshooting light?


It probably indicates that the cable is not being fully retracted when brake is disengaged. Spray as much of cable as possible with WD-40, allow to sit for a few hours, the engage and disengage the brake several times untill it loosens. If this fails the cable may be stretched and needs to be replaced.

You can try to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes and see if the ABS light clears. If not Autozone or Oreillys may have another scanner to fit the ABS diagnostic socket, a free test.

When you did the rear brakes, the emergency brakes inside the rear rotors can sometimes crumble. Need to clean sensors because dirt and brake debris will keep sensors from counting wheel revolutions.

You could also have a ABS diverter valve stuck and not centered. Sometimes its necessary to rebleed to center the part and clear the light.

On older vehicles with drums brakes in the rear, the brake shoes on the inside are used for the emergency brake. However, the emergency brake only uses one pad per wheel instead of both, which is why the emergency brake does not work as well at keeping the vehicle from rolling backwards. You should check to see if the emergency brake is locked up. If that doesn't work, take the driveshaft off and try tow it forwards. If it rolls, then your transmission is not functioning properly.
