Check the adjuster springs and the adjuster for the back breaks. If those are broke, weak, or missing they will need replaced. If it's 4-wheel disc it might be bad calipers or anti-lock brake controller.

SOURCE: 97 FORD E250 VAN SHIFT LOCKED IN PARK

check the brake lights to see if they work ithey do then the problem is in the locking mechanism, however if the brake lights sont work then first check the fuse, check the wires and the connector that hooks up to the brake switch under the pedal and if it is dammaged repair as needed and if yo get the lights working yo have made the lock to work also!!

It sounds like the shifter lock out solenoid has gone bad.It is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you push the brake pedal.

SOURCE: jumps forward when brakes are applied at intersections when stopping Doesn't happen all the time.

I don't know if this would be considered a solution or not but in 2006 Ford implemented a new transmission (6 speed automatic) and they have and still have a lot of problems. It is fixed (helped may be more appropriate) by a computer upgrade done by the dealership. MY wife has had nothing but problems out of her 2006 limited ford explorer. The whole computer system had to be replaced at 32,000 miles and then they charged us to upgrade the new computer they put into the car. It's almost comical at this point. The transmission problem has been solved for the most part on our vehichle but it took several ford computer updates. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: car keeps stalling when brakes applied, then starts but turns off

I dont know why, but one time my truck was low on trans fluid and after I topped it off, it didnt stall anymore when put into gear. as fro the odometer i dont know, it may have to go out completely before any diagnosis can be done.

Antilock light came on in my 2000 Ford Expedition. I am told it may be a fuse or fuses I need to check. I am not seeing anything on the fuse diagram which ones to check. Any thoughts?


I don't I have ever replaced an ABS fuse. Most likely you have a bad wheel sensor. Have the codes read. You will still have brakes until you get it repaired. Just not anti lock brakes. Meaning that the wheels will stop turning if you hit the brakes hard enough.

Brakes grab and anti skid light comes on during acceleration


Check your rear Emergency brake shoes inside the rear rotors. When the brake lining falls off of the metal backing, the linings get ground up inside the rear rotors. The pulverized lining coats the ABS count sensors and the vehicle thinks both rear wheels are turning at different speeds.

That is when automatic anti skid kicks in. The brakes try to stop the spin of the fastest wheel and intermittently applies the brakes.

Remember there are 2 sets of brakes on each rear wheel. The calipers are visible but the drums are concealed as part of the rotor housing.

What it the silver tube on the rear brakes? part says Delphi than numbers 2076/2 and .3/3.0 and theres 2 on the car. one for each rear line.


If you are talking about the tubes in the brake lines themselves, those are pressure reducing valves. They keep your rear wheels from skidding as the weight of the vehicle shifts forward when you stop. If the same fluid pressure was applied to all four wheels, your rear wheels would skid, even under moderate braking.

The symptoms you are describing sound like the brake system is going into antilock mode. If you are driving under wet or slick conditions, this is normal operation and it may not "feel" like it to you, but you are actually stopping in the shortest distance possible for the conditions.

On the other hand...If it is doing this on dry pavement and you are not driving like a maniac, this would be what is commonly called "FALSE antilock mode". This happens when the antilock brake computer "thinks" that one of the wheels is locking up when it is very apparent to the vehicle operator that there is no way a wheel should be locking up or skidding. This ia almost always caused by a weak or defective wheel speed sensor.

I have had a couple of cases on Ford trucks where the front wheel bearings had been changed with aftermarket bearing assemblies and this is when problem either started, or got worse. Upon inspection of the vehicle I found that these new bearing assemblies came with a new wheel speed sensor already installed. For some reason, the manufacturer installed the sensor with a spacer under it??? (like a metal gasket) Removing the sensor and discarding the spacer fixed the vehicles.

2002 Silverado right rear wheel locking up.


You will need to have the parking brake adjusted to the minimum clearance possible and double check the shoes & drum while off.

It sounds as though the shoes are loose, they move forward, grab & unil you center the brakes by applying them and then they release until put into a bind again.

These usually don't get adjusted or even looked at since they are hidden inside the brake rotor hub on the rear wheels.

good luck.

Rear wheels on 2000 super duty f250 skid in reverse only


I hate to say it but it sounds like you have a severe problem in the rear end. Here are a couple of things i would do. First pull off your tires and wheels. Of course you need to put the truck on jack stands and block the wheels for safety! Disconnect your rear drive line so you know nothing from front diff or trans could be affecting it. Next spin the brake rotors by hand and inspect them for severe damage. Go forwards and backwards. Also listen in your rear end for grinding or clunking noises and also excessive play front foward to reverse. And last drain your oil and put your finger up inside the housing as far as you can and feel for large pieces that should not be there. This should give you a good idea if it is in your braking sytem your rear end or wether you need to start looking at front diff. or the trans. If all is good on rear end do the same thing for front diff and inspect it as well. Make sure you pull front driveline off!

the front rotors are warped ahd either need to be turned or replaced. use quality parts and motorcraft pads. if you use cheap rotors, they stand the chance of either being warped upon install or warping soon after.
