Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
I have 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee V6 4X4. It has sat all day. I went outside and heard a "clicking" or "ticking" noise coming from the rear of the vehicle. It sounds like it is coming from the rear wiper, but the switch isnt turned on. I got in to start it, and the battery is dead. I did notice that when I depressed the brake pedal, the noise stopped. But as soon as I took my foot off of the pedal, the noise returned. This vehicle hasnt been driven for a full day, so the noise isnt from the exhaust being warm or anything. Any ideas on why I have this sound, and any ideas on how to fix this, since Im guessing this is why my battery is dead. The battery is only 4 months old, so it isnt the battery either. Thanks in advance.
Sounds like a malfunctioning relay in the wiper controls and youd better get that battery charged back up before it freezes and the water in it turns to ice.. it will kill that battery really quick..

Prior to the brakes being replaced you more than likely had metal to metal contact which can throw metal shavings on the ABS wheel sensors. This metal shavings stick to the road grime on the wheel sensors showing the ABS computer a false reading making the ABS light come on. On Ford Windstars, the ABS light and the traction control light are on the same circuit. A simple (and cheap) fix is to pull the ABS wheel sensors and clean them with brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner. Make sure you dry them well and reinstall. On the Windstar there is one bold holding the sensors to the back of the wheels. I recommend you spray some WD40 on the bold and wait about 10 minutes before removing.
If this doesn't fix the ABS light and brakes, you can have the ABS system diagnosed at a shop for about an hour labor. (Usally about $100)
I have fixed many of these type of problems just by cleaning the ABS wheel sensors. Good luck.

no disrespect but....
Check the book and make sure you are using the proper bulbs on all sides. (3957 looks just like 3956 but wont work right)

The power brake booster has a bad valve. I can't suggest where to find a new valve for it, but you can buy a rebuilt replacement. They are usually not hard to put on.
