More then likely you have a leak in the master cylinder witch is mounted on the brake booster. You can use a spray bottle filled with soap and water, and spray onto where you hear the hissing noise. It will bubble up where the leak is.

My brake pedal will not budge, and a hissing noise present when running


The stop lights won't go out until the pedal is depressed, as there is a switch which is activated by the pedal.

A hard brake pedal is probably caused by a defective servo. The hissing noise is probably an air leak in the servo.

Switch the engine on, open the bonnet (the hood..) and see if you can locate the hissing - that'll probably be in the brake servo area.

If you don't know what a brake servo looks like here is a generic image:

I HAVE A LINCOLN TOWN CAR 95. WHEN THE CAR IS RUNNING AND I PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL THE CAR VIBRATE A LITTLE BIT. WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX THAT PROBLEM/ THANKS.


If the vibration occurs when you are driving (moving) then it is probably warped brake rotors. Machining or replacing the rotors should fix the problem. If the problem is occuring when you are stopped then sounds like a vacuum leak having to do with the power brake booster.

Note: Many warped brake rotors are cause by over torqueing the lug nuts. Hammering lug nuts on with a pneumatic air gun has ruined MANY brake rotors. It is a good idea to actually use a torque wrench and tighten lugs to the recommended torque value that is usually listed in the owner's manual.

Hope this helps you.

1999 Lincoln towncar limo, outside lights


could be lighting control module $$$$$$$ @400
it's above brake pedal area under dash. 6 x 4" approx.
Do high beams work? Flash to pass work?

if it's the lighting control module, it will provide a fault code when dealer tests it with NGS testor.
