Starting from right rear, left rear, right front , left front, engine off, have someone pump brake pedal 3-5 times and hold, open bleeder until steady stream of fluid runs out, close bleeder, repeat if bubbles are seen. Check fluid level after each wheel is bled so as not to run low and induce air. Top up after last wheel is bled ,start and drive and recheck for pull.

You have the best possible diagram: look at your brakeline and duplicate as best you can. (does not have to be perfect, just has to be connected well on both ends and not interfere with any moving parts). avoid places where it could rub through and use small sections of rubber hose to eliminate vibration and rubbing Use as many of the original fasteners as possible along the line. Bleed system completely when installed.

The first to check is the brackfluid level, its possible that the brackfluid is low, and some car's have a cut-out unit for savety.
If that is not the problem, try to remove the light units at the back of the car. It could be a wire that short out to earth (the body of the car.) Check all the wires to see if there's not one that make a short.

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Contour. Front wheels binding when

Check your Control arm bushings and or your ball joints. The bushings are known to wear out easily and the replacement control arm with ball joint included is only around $150.00. You can check the control arm by putting vehicle on jack stands and with a pry bar pry between the frame and control arm. If there is excessive movement then replacement is required, also when the car is in this position try to pivot your wheel top and bottom(in and out) and this checks the ball joint.

I have a 2000 ford contour sport and when it rains it's uncontrollable like it's skating on ice and when it's dry out the car drives fine but pulls right hand when brakes are applied.

If car pulls to the right when brakes are applied it is because your left caliper is not working properly. Check it out and repair.

On my 1998 ford contour every time i put on the brakes car pulls to the right i have changed rotors pads calipers and bled the lines can anyone help me out pleassssse

I would start by checking the suspension. There is most likely some play in a control arm bushing, ball joint, or tie rod or something. Worn suspension parts can cause this and they will pull to the side that has a problem, if it pulls right, the bad part will be on the right. My guess is it's a worn control arm bushing.

1996 ford contour needs to be recalled. Dome lite and brake lites stay on when door is closed causing battery to drain prematurely.

If the experts told Dan to get rid of the car, then I am in total agreement !
I walked into a Ford garage a few years back to get some advice on a friend's Contour I was putting a timing belt on. I talked for a bit with a mechanic there, and it seemed all the ford mechanics there were pretty much in agreement that the Ford Contour was one poorly designed and executed product that they'd rather not see come in their shop. Expensive to repair and often made the owners mad from all the hassle.

Attend to one of the door switches for the dome light, and see if the brake switch on the brake pedal can be adjusted. IDK, do these models have a body control module? I hope not for your sake. (Trade it off!)

1995 ford contour has a blown brake line on passangers rear. mechanic said the gas tank has to be dropped to replace, Is this true and if so how much of a pain is the whole operation?

There r ways around that if u follow the brake line u could cut the broken one right before the gas tank then flare it n connect a new line n run it on the side of the gas tank with wire ties . Also u can put a compression fitting on the line u cut after the gas tank that's Wat I did two years ago n they r still working fine .if u can get the flare kit do it that way cuz I belive they can fail u for the compression fitting

I cannot fix the rear left turn signal/brake light on a 1997 Ford Contour. Where does this circuit go? I don't want to have to take the car to a Ford dealer to fix.

The turn signal/brake light wire goes to the turn signal mechanism in the steering column. It does this so your brake light and turn signals work at the same time. For example you put your foot on the brake and the left brake light will come on but allow the right turn signal to flash. Try you four way flashers and see what happens. Also be wary of the socket the bulb fits into. Double check for voltage with a test light at the wire coming in from the back. Check that the socket is getting a good ground. You can run a ground wire to a clean area of metal from the socket if you have to.
Let me know. Lee

No brake lights

have you checked the bulbs ? you have 3 things that need to be checked you have the brake light switch on the brake pedal , then you have multifunction switch and a hazard switch. some cars the hazard is on the multi but I cant remember for sure on yours so I put it there for you. the multifunction switch is the most common problem for brake light problems and you just have to test out put and inputs at each one.
