Question about Ford Taurus
2001 ford tarus sedan. Wont shift from park. brake lights not working. When i go down and push up on the relay switch attached to brake pedal it solves the problem. as soon as i press on the brake pedal once the problem returns. What is causing this? Is that switch operated by a spring that has broke off? What cause this to operate correctly?
There's a switch on the brake pedal arm that turns the light on when you press the brake pedal.
The switch needs to be adjusted or replaced.
Hope this helps.

Do you Hear the (RATCHETING Noise when you Push the Pedal Down ? If Not Its Possibly the Spring that Holds Pressure Against The RATCHET PAW on the Mechenizm itself.

Very common problem do loads. You need to lubricate the handbrake linkage under the rear seats ( the bit ur bum goes on). If you have a estate car then the seats will flip up but if its a saloon car then you will have to remove 2 13mm nuts for either side seat. When ur under there, u will see a little black panel in the middle, remove it 2 8mm self tappers and a 13mm nut. right you should now see the linkage where the cable splits to either side of the car. Get a load of wd-40 and spray whilst some else operates the handbrake 100 times or so. sorted! Dont forget to adjust the handbrake at the wheels after, go all the way with the adjust and back off two clicks either side.
Hope this works and good luck1
