Dont break the brakes, please
you lost your operators guide, so soon,... LOL

ok, they all say same thing on most cars. even new,
so what does it say........

1: hand brake on, or switch stuck on..
2: Brake fluild low. ever check levels every week?
3: total brake failure, (either front or rear) (DIFF VALVE switch detected this)
4: on newer cars, more... (abs. etc)

you can read the FSM on this, it shows every test to do.
or alldata.com, login and read the brake section.
it breaks down in to subsections for the lamp.

If I go over 60mph my emergency break goes on I want to disconnect it ,help


if your emergency brake engages at 60 miles per hour, there is a problem. If the light is coming on, then your rear brakes need adjustment; however, if it is the actual brake, then you could have a faulty system, and it would need to be replaced.

Emergency break stuck- how to realease it?


The emergency brake does not affect the lighting or lights on your plates. This is an entirely different problem going on. On some vehicles, when you start them and put them in reverse the emergency brake pops out automatically. If this doesn't work, you will have to manually unlock the mechanism. As for the lights, the problem may be in your switch.

Brake light on dash comes on and remains on for awhile, then goes off.


Is your emergency break catching? Do you feel drag? Are you hearing any noises from the breaks? Have you checked the break fluid?

The brake light comes on, on the dash. Brakes work O.K.2003 mercury grand marquis. 112000 miles. the dealer says the pads are good.


Make sure your emergency brake pedal is all the way up, because sometimes if it goes down one notch, that can trigger that light to come on..It wont be enough to drag or slow the sar down, but it will be enough to turn that light on...Also even though your brakes are good..double check your break fluid level...
