you likely wore out your brakes and now overheated them and seized them. If you hear grinding in brakes, GET THEM REPLACED...not only can you damage your car, you could kill someone if you completely lose you brakes...
There is a procedure to do this and it should be in your owners manual. You need to buy a reset tool from Ford for about 35 dollars. The procedure goes like this.go in the car and step on and off the brake. Cycle the ignition switch on and off 3 times ending in off. Step on the brake and let off again.c Cycle the key off and on 3 times ending with the key on. Your cars horn will sound. With the key left on,use the Ford tool,holding it on the tire opposite the valve stem,press the button on the tool till the horn beeps again. This starts with the left front tire,right front tire,right rear tire and left rear tire,with having to get a beep at every tire. When you finish at the left rear tire you'll hear 2 beeps knowing you did it right. Or you can go to any tire shop,or Pep Boys and they will do it for you for a small charge.
if you replaced all the brake parts I would check your hub bearings and cv axels if the noise is coming from front if the noise is in the rear check your e brake shoes located inside of the rear brake rotors if u have disc rear brakes or your rear brake bearings .. hope this helps
Check the brake hose going the caliper or drum on that wheel, its probably leaking. That would explain the lack of pressure. Dont know whether your car has disc or drum brakes on the rear, could be either. But if the hose is leaking, fluid will be all over the inner part of the wheel. And check your brake fluid to see if its low.
Or one of the springs in the drum could have broken or popped off. That would explain the grinding noise.
A broken spring is more likely since
you hear the grinding noise
because the brake shoe would always be touching the drum because the spring keeps the shoe from contacting the drum when the brakes are not being pushed.
the shift interlock is not releasing. You are doing emergency release procedure with engine off and key in off position.
Likely you don't have brake lights either. When you step on the brake with the key ON, it releases the shift lock solenoid (and turns on the brake lights).
Check to be sure the brake light switch on the pedal arm has the wire going to it and you can hear it click on and off.Check the fuse for the brake lights too.
sounds more like the brakes than anything else. it sounds like youre down to metal on metal where you dont have a brake pad left on that side of the car ...have it checked but i dont think it will be the transmission
