I have a 1999 lincoln continental and the rear window defroster will not defrost the button lights up but nothing ever happens.


check the heating element (the metal traces on the window) for breaks. a break will cause the circuit to not be complete and power will not flow. if you find a break, there is repair kits for it at auto parts stores. also check fuses. just because the indicator lamp is illuminating does not mean that power is making it to the back of your vehicle.

Rear breaks lock up at slow speeds. when traveling from 0 to 10 MPH if breaks are applied abruptly 1 or both of the rear wheels will lock up before the front breaks seem to engage, especially on wet road....


`right one of two problems ,firstly remove the rear drums and check for a fluid leak as a slight smear of fluid will cause the exact problems you describe ,if the rear shoes are dry then push the cylinder each side to make sure its not seized ,secondly check the load sensing valve which will be under the chassis above the back axle,if that appears ok and not seized then remove the master cylinder and take the piston out and check the rubbers and the cylinder bore for wear ,but mainly this fault is caused by the brake shoes having a slight amount of brake fluid contamination and it causes the brakes to grab

Parking brake efficency too low


The parking break is a stand alone cable that can be adjusted if you climb under the vehicle. depending on your parking break location in the cab will help you better locate it under the car IE if you set your parking brake using a handle in the center of the vehicle cab, the wire is close to center under the vehicle, if you use a handle or foot pedal its on the driverside of the vehicle and Y's off to the passager side and driver side rear break

follow the cable and you will find the adjuster bolt, just tighten it to take up slack in the cable, if there is no slack you will increase the efficency of the parking break.....Dont over tighten it though cause this can cause drag in the rear breaks and shorten the lifespan of the break shoe or pad

Brakes brake pedal is hard to push


Chk. to see if you got vacume to break booster, If there is than i would say the booster is bad. When you have to push hard on break peddel means either the booster is bad or there is no vacume to booster. I really don't understand the secound part of your question, Do you mean there are no bleeders on the rear breaks? or you can't get fluid to bleeders in the rear? If you can't get any fluid to the rear breaks, you could have a master cyl. problem too.

no. It would be the other way around. If something went wrong in the rear end and it locked up, you could break the drive shaft universal joints trying to force it to go. if your rear end locked up, I'd be willing to bet there was no oil in it.

Poor breaks


When you open the breaking system you allow air to enter the break lines and that will cause squishy or weak breaks. You have too "bleed" the air out of the lines now. The way to do this is to have someone help you with this process. They will need to pump the break pedal until the break pedal is stiff and hold pressure on the pedal while you open the valve on the caliper or wheel cylinder(disc or drum) until you have a steady stream of fluid with no air. To ensure you get all the air out you need to start from the passenger rear tire,then driver rear, pass. front, driver front. Make sure you slip one end of a hose over the bleeder valve and the other end in a container so that you don't allow the break fluid to contaminate the new brakes,

I have a 1975 chevyvan 30 motorhome. The brake warning light came on on the dash. Checked fluid and it was low so added fluid. When stopped I can pump the brakes up firm but when motor running the pedal...


Air in the lines, or a leakey line or caliper, do you see any fluid leaking on the rims? or under the car? if not they prolly just need to be bled.
