Do you mean spongy? or fades away to the floor? Most likely Master Cylinder is the culprit

Check the brake light switch. Its near the brake padel under the dash. If it back out just a bit the vehicle will think someone is pushing on the brake pedal.

1997 E-150 changed master cylinder and booster now can not take out of park. what is the booster to cylinder adjustment

Sounds like under the dash you may have moved the switch that releases the electronic solenoid that disengages the shifter look near the brake pedal and look for a button that is not being released. It should be plastic.

I have a 1997 Ford F-150 whose parking brake emergency light sometimes turns on, but not often. It seems the problem is a sticky switch. What do you think and where is the switch? Thanks.


Check your brake fluid level and the condition of your brake pads/shoes.

The ABS and/or Brake Light some times come on when the fluid level is low.

If you still want to check the switch, it is located on the upper part of the brake pedal

Brake lights and cruise control don 't work

Firstly check the bulbs back there and of course the fuses in the fuse panel. If all bulbs and fuses are good check the brake pedal switch at the pedal itself, ensure it gets power and is closing when you press the pedal, with an ohmmeter. good luck

I have bled the brakes but still too much play in pedal

Bleeding (to fix soft-pedal) the brakes only takes the trapped air out of the system. Excessive pedal movement is fixed by adjusting the brake shoes (drum type brakes) out further. Many vehicles will self-adjust the shoes by stepping repeatedly on the pedal while moving in reverse. Disk brakes self-adjust after the first application of the brakes (be sure to recheck fluid level in the master cylinder). Hope that helps.

Shift gears are locked!!

if you mean it will not come out of park then see if your brakes light light up when you step on the pedal if not check the brake light switch under the dash on top of the brake pedal.
