Look at the upper metal part of the brake pedal.
You should see a tiny push-type contact switch that will be pressed when you step on the brakes.
That should be the switch you are looking for.

SOURCE: 2004 Mercury Mountaineer Emergency Brake Adjustment

Greetings larslabs,
My name is Dennis and I can assist you to finding your parking brake adjustment location.
1) the adjustment is located so that you have to remove your center console floor finish panel (this is the drink holder).
2) raise your parking brake lever and gently pry the plastic tabs from the center console.
3) Once you can see the park brake lever you will see a nut that is turned to adjust the lever so that it has 5 clicks when it is applied.
Glad to be of assistance and thank you for using FixYa. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating (and it keeps my rating up to date). Thank you, Dennis

My breaklights wont go off and have now run down my battrie

Replace the brake light switch at the brake pedal. Unplug it first and be certain the brake lights go off to be certain you're on the right track.

The rear brake lights won't go out no matter what we do. (2003 Mercury Mountaineer) We tried starting the car...putting it in gear...backing up...going forward...turning headlights on and...

You have a faulty Brake Light Switch, and it is stuck on.

Replace your brakelight switch. Until you replace it, you could pull the breaker out of the fuse panel in order to keep your battery from dying.

The brake lights on my 2002 Mountainer will not go off

If your brake lights will not turn off, check it this way-Pull UP on the brake pedal. If the lights go off, you need to adjust the stop light switch, which is mounted on the upper brake pedal (it has an electrical plug in attached to it)
