Question about 1997 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Suddenly my brakes get really hard, not that often.

My 1997 expedition eddie bauer 5.4 has a trouble, sometimes when I push the brake pedal it become really hard and vibrate and the car do not brake at all, I need to release preassure and push it again and then it brake normally.

It has normal fluid level, everything seems ok but the cruise control deactivation swith has a little fluid stain and do not work.

The main issue is that sometimes the brakes surprise me because it does that just once in a while, I was thinking to replace the ABS sensors.

Stop lights wont stay on when i step on brake pedal on 2001 expedition


I had this same problem (brake lights won't come on when pushing on brake) I found that the brake light sending unit had come out of adjustment.Look under the dash by the brake pedal.There is a plastic threaded unit that needs to be pushed back towards the brake pedal lever.Careful not to push it to far or the brake lights will stay on. Hope this helps

I Have a 99 expedition eddie bauer. My brake lights wont come on till i push the pedal almost to the floor. Can u tell me whether i need to replace the brake light switch.


I had a similar problem when I owned a 1997 Expedition. In my case, the brake light switch, mounted to the brake pedal arm, was faulty. My guess is that you have a similar problem. Pretty easy to replace... couple of wires and a clip as I recall.

Good luck.

I have a 2003 eddie bauer ford expedition, when im driving, i can hear a sound like air coming from a tire under the dash on the drivers side floor area. when i tap on my break the sound goes away, what...


A vacuum leak. Look & listen for hissing noise where rubber or nylon lines come through firewall under dash near brake pedal. Also look under hood at large hose going to back of brake master cylinder, power brake booster.

'99 Expedition brake lights aren't turning on when pressing brake


It could be a number of things, the good news is that none of them are serious or expensive to fix.

The normal components that make up your brake circut are:

1. The brake light fuse (In the fuse box and labeled as such)
2. The brake light switch/relay - also called a stop light switch. It's under the dash, right behind the brake pedal arm. When you push the brake, it sends a signal to the lights which turns them on. Think of the dome light switch in the door jam of your truck. When you open the door, it releases the switch and your dome light pops on. Same thing with the brake light switch.
3. The bulbs in the tail lights and the 3rd brake light.
If none of them are working, it's most likely a fuse or the switch/relay under the dash. If it's the switch, it's a $12 part. Obviously fuses are only a couple bucks.

1994 bronco eddie bauer. I have no brake lights


I think there are 2 switchs on that brake pedal. You are right tho about the brake switch causing your problem.
If you fix your brake light problem your other problem will be fixed also.. check to see if the wires at the brake pedal switch are energized. I am betting on a ground problem.
