Your car is likely equipped with an automatic parking brake release, which is vacuum operated. The leak you are hearing is likely this switch gone bad. Do you really need this feature in your car? Probably not, so find the hose which is the vacuum source, then disconnect and plug it. Be sure to tie it up so that it does not interfere with anything.

Run the vehicle at idle and turn off engine. Step on the brakes with the engine off and listen for vacuum leak. If you hear hissing with the brake pedal depressed it's the Brake vacuum booster......In the same area there is a parking brake vacuum release switch which leaks only with the car is in idle. If this is leaking your automatic parking brake will not release your parking brake automatically in drive.

I have a 1992 crown Victoria and my head light and turnsignal panel is broken how do I remove it and what tools do I need


It is located on your steering column. The cover on the column is either held on with 5.5mm hex head blots or phillip's head screws. The switch itself can be held on with phillips, torx, or security torx bits. Sometimes loosening the mounting bolts on your steering column makes the job easier.

I guess that means replacing the bulbs didn't work? The only other thing might be the dimmer switch. Its located on the bottom of the steering column, about halfway down fron the steering wheel.

Wipers will not park on 93 ford crown victoria


Hmmmm... if you replaced the motor you must have cleaned the area housing the arm mechanism. I had the same problem and found the problem to be in the arm assembly box on the firewall. Under the hood, triangular shaped box with snap on top was full of dirt, leaves and pine needles... I removed all the **** & my wipers now park as they should!!
