There is a brake switch up under the dash behind the brake pedal, it is possible that the securing nut has come loose and is about to fall off, get under there asap to prevent it coming off {no danger} To adjust it position the push button against the brake pedal lever and lock the nut in position. you can play with it to your desired position. glad to help.

SOURCE: 98 Ford Explorer Brake lights not working,top brake light does

I had a similar problem like this with my 98 explorer once; neither brake lights worked and the top one stayed on very dimly at all times. It turns out both of my brake lights went bad at exactly the same time, which for some reason made the top light stay on. Felt like an idiot, but all I needed to do was change the bulbs.

I have a 2002 ford explorer and sometimes its hard to shift to drive and the brake lights don't work unless I press really hard on the pedal.


*Hard to shift:
-Possible the shift cable need to be adjusted.
*Brake light is no working unless step(press really hard).
-Need to adjust the brake light switch. It's too closed or stuck.

Abs light on


ur brakes will work fine when abs system goes bad what changes is that the brakes will lock up when pressed hard and can cause skidding when abs lght pops on usually means a sensor problem look behind wheel and check connections and wire for damage or partial disconnect sometimes debris can cause damage to the wiring if looks good than have truck scanned and use the trouble code to pinpoint the trouble location most auto stores will offer to scan vehicles for free check ur local area

My 1997 land rover discovery is stuck in park


This can sometimes happen when the brake sensor is not being activated. If you press *really* hard on the brake, you can sometimes get it to trip, allowing you to get out of park. Generally, the sensor will have to be replaced, but I have had one car (2002 Ford Explorer) where this trick would make it work for months at a time.

My 1999 Explorer's brake lights don't work every time you depress


If you have replaced the switch then u need to test the connecter to the switch, the wires break inside the plastic outer insulation cover, u can buy a repair connector from Ford to fix this.
