Question about 1995 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Automobile brakes lock up

My son has a 1995 Mercury Sable wagon (v6 3.0L) which has just started having problems with the brakes locking up when driving in stop and go traffic on very hot (90+) days. I removed and inspected all 4 calipers and rotors and found them in good condition. Any ideas of what to check next?

    when we start out with the sable--slow speed--when brakes are applied the brake pedal feels like it has a charlie horse--brakes is hard to push and grinding sound--brakes still stops but it is scary. sometimes abs light comes on. haven't paid attention to the weather. i have it at the mechanics and it took them a week to get it do it but they have never heard it before sooooooo--any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try re-programing the system.
These are the instructions from the service manual.

. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 5 times within 10 seconds, with the 5th time ending
in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle
to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will
cycle again to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

Door locks open by themselves randomly


some possibilities

The power door locks may self-activate or cycle on some vehicles. This may be caused by a misadjusted front door lock linkage, excess solder in the front door power window switch, water infiltration of a potential open wire harness connector inside the front doors, wiring harness chafe on the door check strap, or a damaged Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) key fob.
