They're is a part called a Brake Switch right in front of your pedal. This works the opposite of most switches, as in when you press the pedal and the button is released, your brake lights come on. It's possible that it needs to adjusted or even replaced. Hope this helps.

    My little blue rubber stopper broke off of it. There're two, and apparently you need both of them to be working properly. So! Check if the blue rubbery thing is still attached to your 'brake switch'. If you can't find it, try pulling up on the pedal, if the brake lights turn off, then look harder for the switch. At that point it's either the switch or the brake spring. Or something else.

SOURCE: Broken odometer 97 Mercury Tracer

Depends on the main fault, Dealer = $380.oo to 480.oo Good local garage about half and if you clean the car real good maybe even less, we like working on good well keep clean cars. Remove any thing that might get gone - of value. Mostly we do not like the stuff in our way (if it is a dash problem) and if for any reason something falls under the seat and you can't find it you feel ripped off.

Rear brake drum removal 1992 mercury tracer

Yes. and than the drum will come off. You will find that it will not move at first so take a hammer and tap, not slam, around the edge of the drum to brake the rust. It you have difficulty removing the 2 screws don't strip the heads. Take your screw driver and put it in the slot than tip it at an angle and hit the end with a hammer to apply force sideways to the screw. This will, in most cases, brake the rust and permit the screw to turn.

Need to replace my dpfe sensor on my 1999 mercury mountaineer. Where is it, i would like to change it myself

I believe the sensor that you are looking for is on the drivers side of the engine. If you have a 4.0 SOHC engine or a 5.0 engine the wiring will be the same. You will have a brown with a white tracer, a brown with a light green tracer, and a grey with a red tracer to the sensor. If you you have a 4.0 EI then you will have a Brown with a white tracer and 2 brown with a light green. If you follow the 2 tubes coming up from your exhaust manifold you should be able to locate your sensor it will have to tubes or hoses going to it from your exhaust manifold. Good luck.
