Shift interlock problem sounds like . Does your explorer have floor mounted shifter ?
Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator mounted on the floor shifter. If the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is disabled when the brake pedal is depressed.
If the selector lever will not move out of park with the key in the ON position, it will need to be unlocked manually.

SOURCE: How do I adjust the parking brake?

Loosen the cable nut at the rear brake, pull the cable until the tension is tight, then tighten the cable nut. Since the parking brake only operates on the rear brakes, your rear pads may be too worn causing the parking brake not to hold. Check the pads first to see if they need to be replaced. Also, the parking brake cable can stretch or break over time. Verify that isn't case since you may need to install a new cable rather than adjust it.

SOURCE: Parking Brake problem

2000 S-10: brake functions properly while pedal is held down, but when I remove my foot, the brake is released.
The following is not a repair so much as a solution to the basic problem and I guess it won't pass scrutiny of any state inspection. Nevertheless, this idea may skip around the automatic pedal stop malfunction and buy you some time while a proper part replacement is arranged.
The release cable ends at the ratchet assembly by the pedal and the lever which receives it can be pushed forward before depressing the pedal thereby engaging the stop which will hold the pedal down and keep the brake engaged. There is no click, or catch evident when the release lever is moved forward and it only moves a little bit.
Not the easiest reach from the driver’s seat. Also, the release cable is likely to jump out of its place if you just reach blindly and push.
From what I've read on this site, there are some design issues with the ratchet mechanism that commonly lead to failure of the pedal stop function.
Hopefully this will help those who still want to park on a hill.

SOURCE: My 2000 Ford Explorer is making a loud squeaking

if you can put car on lift( drive on ramp type lift where wheels are NOT hanging free) raise car up and have someone else pull down on front bumper repeatedly while you try to locate noise by putting either your ear or hand on/near different "pivot" points. SUCH AS: lower ball joints, control arm bushings, shock absorbers,sway bar,etc. check bolts nuts etc. for tightness. sometimes a giveaway is a RUST MARK near a bolt head or nut-meaning something was rubbing. if you still cant narrow it down, take a can of silcone spray,or WD40, liquid wrench and one by one spray each pivot point untill the squeak lessens or goes away.if that happens youve got your culprit.

2004 Ford Explorer- Brake lights remain on even when vehicle parked/off.....? What can I check/fix? Please & thank you!


check under dash on steering column above brake pedal for the brake light switch, check for proper adjustment. Push in on switch and have someone check for lightt to turn off. if it goes off then adjust switch so it makes quicker contact with brake pedal bracket. If it wont turn off then i would expect the switch is bad. But remember i am not there to do a hands on inspection but this is the most common senario

Cant get rear caliper piston to collapse 06


The rear calipers on that model rotate in, it requires a special tool.

If you pushed too hard directly in, there is a chance that you may have damaged the caliper.

Rear roters won't come off like front did.


If I am correct, the parking brake is part of this rotor also. The inside of the rotor is shaped like a drum brake hub, so the parking brake shoes can expand, and push against the drum shape. (Just like a Corvette)

You may want to adjust the parking brake shoes in, for easier removal.
To do this, there is an adjustment hole knockout panel, or access plug you remove.

(Adjustment Hole Knockout Panel. Fancy name for an oblong piece of metal, that has been cut into the brake backing plate, but not cut all the way through. You take a punch, and hammer, and hit the side end of this 'Knockout Panel'. When it twists, grab the end with a pair of vise grips, work it back and forth, and it will break out. You will then need to buy the rubbery access plugs to fill this hole)

With the adjustment hole open you will see a star wheel. Just like on drum brakes. Use a brake spoon. (Brake adjustment wrench) You'll have to experiment, with which way to turn this star wheel, to slack the parking brake shoes away, from the drum shape in the rotor. One side should be left handed thread, the other side is right handed thread.

Still won't budge? More penetrating oil, (WD-40 is NO GOOD for this!), and use a rubber mallet, or similar type hammer from the inside of the vehicle, hitting out.

(Jack Stands, Wheel Chocks, Eye Protection! Have someone nearby watching, in case the vehicle starts to slip off, and can grab you, or at least warn you. Thank you for letting me say this, I feel better!)

Press the brake then my rear tires brakes keep locking


it just happenned to me with my ford f-150 1997, turned out to be the rubber hose that was clogged so it couldn't relieve the pressure in the lines....

it should be located on top on the differential if you don't have disc brakes on the back.... but if it is disc brakes you should have a rubber hose on each side....
