SOURCE: How do I adjust the parking brake?

Loosen the cable nut at the rear brake, pull the cable until the tension is tight, then tighten the cable nut. Since the parking brake only operates on the rear brakes, your rear pads may be too worn causing the parking brake not to hold. Check the pads first to see if they need to be replaced. Also, the parking brake cable can stretch or break over time. Verify that isn't case since you may need to install a new cable rather than adjust it.

SOURCE: replace rear brakes adjust handbrake

The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.

SOURCE: My 2001 ford focus is stuck in park, stepping on

u will need to fix the brake lights, it is most likely a defective brake light switch, this switch is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is easy to replace, no special tools needed

If it only lights up the tail lights when its in RND21 but works correct in park then I believe your looking at a internal shorted brake shift interlock on the shifter back feeding and sending power back to the brake switch and turning the lights on. I would access the shifter assembly and depin the wire I am pointing to and reconnect the connector and see if the brake light issue stops. You will need to manually shift it out of park or temporarily attach this wire to get it out of park for the test.

I have removed the disc rear brake and pads on my 2003 Ford focus SVT. How is the piston compressed or retracted?


Hi There.
you may have to turn the piston back in (ie;twist ) some fords have a sort of threaded self adjuster, so you will need a large pair of vice grips or water pump pliers
be sure to take notice which way you turn the piston, or you may end up with the piston in you hand, then the fun really starts.
Good Luck.

The stop lights stay on when the car is not in park


Hi, most likely this is the brake pedal sensor switch. It is mounted on the brake pedal arm, and it has a screw adjustment mechanism. You will need to adjust it by turning the screw so the switch does not make contact when the brake pedal is pressed.
Take care

2003 ford focus replaced brake switch lights will work in park but when i engage revs neut drive brake lights stay ?????


I have the same problem with my 03 Focus hatchback! Someone stoppedme yesterday to tell me that they looked like they were always on when i was driving but when i was in "Park" they worked... This particular driver was also driving a focus hatchback and asked me if my Cruise Control was working.. It actually was not and he told me the same thing happened with his focus. He said it was a wire attached to the back brake lights that had broken. I have not yet gotten it fixed. has anyone else had this problem?

2003 Ford Focus ZX-5: Brake lights stuck on


Check the lights on the 3rd brake light. If the bulbs are out the brake lights will remain on when in gear, but work properly when in park. I had the same problem had to go to Napa to get bulbs (5) and now all is fine.
