Did you try backing the brakes off and then once you get the drum back on readjust the brakes.

Probably a really simple question, but on a Mercury Mystique 1997 (manufactured 1996) brake master cylinder (with ABS), which port, front or rear, leads to the front wheel section of the ABS module?

Off the master cylinder. The front tube controls the rear brakes. And the back one controls the front brakes. Just a note. I don't know which year they started doing this, but, the front right brake goes/ties in to the left rear brakes. left front to right rear. This set up runs off the ABS module to the brakes.

Cant adjust back brakes to get drum back on

the adjuster wheel has to make the brake shoe 'spreader' shorter-yo9u need to rotate the adjuster wheel so the brake shoes are closer together to get the drum back on-ideally, adjust it so that there is slight pressure when you slide the drum on.

Brake lights stay on even after car lights etc have been turned off. this is the first time this is happening.could there be a brake light switch cuz if there is i cannot find it on my 99 mercury mystique...

THE stop light switch is either in the brake line somewhere under the bonnet or above the brake pedal
Its either a pressure or a finger switch.....

Emergency brake for 1999 cougar

Not likely! cause the length wouldn't be right or the way it mounts. You could use one off of another cougar within a couple years make of yours.

2000 mercury mystique can not get drum back on after replacing brakes

make sure the brake shoe fits in the drum and is seated tip to tip and you can push it all the way around the inside of the drum.
then install the shoes.
and then trun the adjuster screw all theway in to colapse the shoes in all theway.then the drum will fit.
the adjust the adjuster screw back out untill it just begins to rub on the drum.not tight at all just enough to rub very lightly.
after a few miles you may have to go back to the rear brakes and adjust them a little more.
proper adjustment in the rear shoes is important to a good strong pedal.

hope this helps
thank you

1998 Mystique brake lights don't work while the window brake light does work.

Try a continuity test, not sure where to find the electrical scheme but if you obtain it, use a tester or borrow one to test the continuity of the wires of both taillights, could be simple as a cut wire.
