Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Ford F-150 whose parking brake emergency light sometimes turns on, but not often. It seems the problem is a sticky switch. What do you think and where is the switch? Thanks.

Hi!!

Check your brake fluid level and the condition of your brake pads/shoes.

The ABS and/or Brake Light some times come on when the fluid level is low.

If you still want to check the switch, it is located on the upper part of the brake pedal

More likely the shift cable is binding. Also make sure you fully apply the emergency brake when you park before shifting into Park. This will prevent loading the linkage by the parking pawl making it difficult to move the lever. Especially when parking on a hill.

Also make sure you are pressing the brake pedal when shifting our of Park. Sometimes the brake light switch can be intermittent and either the switch is bad or the switch is out of alignment with the brake pedal lever. This not the most common cause.

check teh switch, located under the dash, and is touched by the brake lever, also, back brake adjustment and emergency brake cable adjustment (in that order) can cause the parking break lever to not fully return and activate the switch.

Also, Ford uses this light to indicate low brake fluid level. There is a switch on or near the fluid reservoir.

The brake light switch at your pedal is defective, or more likely, the wire at the connector broke or came loose. If you need to move it in an emergency, turn off the car, place it in neutral, and start it. Mind you that you still will not have brake lights. The switch is an easy fix.
