One of the tail light bulbs can be shorted internally.  Replace the tail light bulbs first.  Try this cheap fix first.

check for voltage in the socket. positive is the center connection. if you have no voltage there, then you may be right. Make sure that you check the wires.

It could be a wheel speed sensor that went out or something... When working with the wiring, something could have just gotten crossed or tapped to get these codes as well. The compressor shouldnt be running anymore if everything was tied off properly. Take it in somewhere and have the codes cleared and that should fix the problem hopefully. I know AutoZone has a reader, but I do not know if they have they ability to clear the codes.
I hope this helps.

How do you replace the brake booster on a 1989 Lincoln town car?

Remove vacuum hose from booster. Remove the two nuts holding the brake master cylinder to the booster. Carefully move booster to one side for ease of removal. Under the dashboard drivers side, remove the clip connecting the brake pedal to the booster actuator rod. Remove the two nuts holding the booster to the firewall. Outside, remove the booster. Installation is reverse of removal. There may be an adjustable rod in the replacement booster. It is important that it is adjusted properly or you may not have brakes or you could damage the master cylinder. Looking at the old booster, check to see how far the rod extends out the front of the booster. Check the new booster and make sure that the new rod extends the same distance. DO NOT ADJUST THE RODS TO THE SAME LENGTH BY PLACING THEM SIDE BY SIDE! Different designs could cause different rod length internal to the booster. What is important is the amount that extends out from the booster. This distance will not change since the master cylinder bolts directly up to the booster.

Replace brake booster

  • Slide the tube nut wrench over the brake line to the master cylinder connection. The master cylinder is normally on the driver's side of the engine bay and mounted on the firewall. Orient the wrench so that it fits over the tube nut on the end of the brake line.
  • 2Disconnect the brake line. Turn the nut counterclockwise to remove. Note the location of each brake line. There are four lines total, and they need to be put back in the same location when reinstalling the lines. You may want to mark them with masking tape and permanent marker.

  • 3Unplug the master cylinder cap electrical plug.
  • 4Remove the brake master cylinder to brake booster bolts with a socket wrench.
  • 5Back the master cylinder off the brake booster.
  • 6Unbolt the bolts holding the brake booster to the firewall on your vehicle.
  • 7Pull the cotter pin out of the brake pedal to brake booster connecting pin with a pair of pliers. This is done inside the vehicle down in the driver side foot well.
  • 8Pull the brake pedal to brake booster connecting pin out to disconnect the brake pedal from the brake booster connecting arm.
  • 9Mark and remove the vacuum hoses on the brake booster and slide the booster off the firewall.
  • 10Install the new brake booster. Installation is the reverse of removal

    Where does the brake fluid go in the car of a 99 dodge intrepid

    Generally, look at the firewall, and find the round booster that has a thick hose connected to it. Then, the master cylinder should be connected to this, generally on the driver's side under the hood. Add DOT3 brake fluid as specified by the manufacturer, after removing the cap or lid to the master cylinder which has a direct link through the booster to the brake pedal behind the firewall.

    Can not find the fuel pump relay on a 1986 camaro its not on the firewall

    Hello ichap1007: My name is Roger and I Will help you. You will find the fuel pump relay located on the firewall of the car. Look to the right of the brake booster. Between the booster and the hood hinge. You should see two relays. The closest to the hinge is the coolant relay. The relay closest to the booster is the fuel pump relay. I would attach a picture but it is larger then I am allowed to send. If you need further help please just ask and I will be glad to help. Please rate the answer. Thank you for using Fix Ya. Roger

    Where is fuel pump relay located 89 dodge ram truck

    The fuel pump relay should be located under the hood on firewall below the brake booster and just to the driver side of the engine housing. The mechanically driven fuel pump on the Ram truck is located on the cylinder head on the driver's side of the vehicle. It is in between the first and second cylinder intake ports. It has two cylindrical pieces on top that are yellowish almost brassy in appearance. It also has three large black lines that have insulation on them. Be careful dealing with gasoline it is needless to say flammable and dangerous. thanks.keep updated.
