Question about 2003 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Pedals don't fully move when pressing the Adjustable Pedal button

HI. I have a 2003 Lincoln Town Car Signature. When I push the pedal adjuster button, you can see the pedals attempting to move back and forth {just barely by a couple millimeters and that's all}. Would you know what is wrong and how this can be resolved?
--Thanks!

Brake light stays on with beeping sound


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.

The brake pedal switch on a 2001 VW Beetle is placed above pedals on the support.

1. Remove the cover panel above the driver's side foot well...

2. Locate old switch, push in brake pedal, and twist switch body to remove...

3. Unplug 4 pin connector from old switch and plug into new switch (it only goes one way...don't force it!). Insert new switch into frame and depress brake petal. You should turn it until it locks into place and is positioned like the original.

4. Start Bug. Press the brake pedal once or twice and the EPC light should go out ...

tdisline_606.jpg
5. If it looks like that... great! Replace the cover over the foot well and you are done! If not, check the 4 pin connection and make sure it is fully seated in the switch. Also check to see if you can hear the switch engage when you press the brake pedal ... if not, you will need to remove the switch and adjust the push rod. The rod will move in and out for adjustment. Check to see if the brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal as well!

2004 ford expedition with adjustable brake and gas pedal. when i depress the button to move the pedals it will barely move them


Hi there nsgpam! It sounds like the electric motors that do the work are worn out. You should be able to get those at an auto parts store but there is a chance that that would be a dealer item. Unfortunately there are some parts that the dealers wont let anyone else sell but them. Check out NAPA, Car Quest or Autozone, or any other large store.

My brake lights doesn't work unless I press the brake pedal all the way to the floor


HI, it sounds like your brake light switch is out of adjument. You can adjust the switch yourself. You will find the located at the top of the brake pedal. You may need to remove the plastic cover panel under the dash to get your hands up to the switch. The switch has a plunger on it that extends and retracts as the pedal is applied so you will need to push the brake pedal in by pushing on the back of the switch this will move the plunger closer. Now when you release the pedal and apply the brake pedal it will self adjust. This should correct your problem. Happy motoring.

Brake and gas pedals


The vehicle has a optional adjustable brake to increase driver comfort. The brake pedal position is changed in phase with the accelerator pedal. The system is adjusted by pressing the dash-mounted switch that powers the driver motor mounted on the accelerator pedal assembly. The two-way motor operates backward (away from the driver) or forward (toward the driver) to adjust the accelerator pedal directly and the brake pedal through the drive cable attached to the brake pedal assembly.
