Disconnect the battery for 1 hour before you start and the air bag will be safe, be very careful when removing it, they are still an explosive device.

sounds like you need an emergency brake adjustment. Around 35 dollars. I'm sure while it's being adjusted the brtakes will also be inspected. Rear brakes might also be low.

Your problem is you have a bad connection somewhere like at parking lights/stoplights/rear lights/so what you do is remove all parking and rear lights then turn on indecators and check the lightsyou will find that one of them has a bad earth and when you put them back in the lights flash dimmly and thats the one with a bad connection or a bad earth going to that light.
Let me know if you still have a problem Ron

Check the park brake switch and the fluid level in the brake master cylinder, both will cause the light to flash.

Parking brake light stays on,brake is not


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.

Emergency brake light stays on the dash. is it a troubleshooting light?


It probably indicates that the cable is not being fully retracted when brake is disengaged. Spray as much of cable as possible with WD-40, allow to sit for a few hours, the engage and disengage the brake several times untill it loosens. If this fails the cable may be stretched and needs to be replaced.

The brake light comes on, on the dash. Brakes work O.K.2003 mercury grand marquis. 112000 miles. the dealer says the pads are good.


Make sure your emergency brake pedal is all the way up, because sometimes if it goes down one notch, that can trigger that light to come on..It wont be enough to drag or slow the sar down, but it will be enough to turn that light on...Also even though your brakes are good..double check your break fluid level...

Break light....


There's a switch on your emergency brake that the indicator (on your dashlight) operates from. Sometimes it slips in its bracket and gets out of adjustment causing your dash light to stay on. Its located on the upper part of your emergency brake pedal. Hope this works for you. Goodluck.
