One suggestion if the shoes and drums are good, simply adjust the tension on the parking break

If your truck has rear disc brakes I'm sure it will need every thing to make the e-brake operate again. Those vehicles have a problem with the e-brake shoes and hardware rotting out and falling out. This is no quik fix and is not a job for the novice. You may want to take it to a repair shop and have it evaluated. If you have the knowledge to work on it your self I will be willing to answer any specific question for you that I can. Thanks and I hope this helps......Dan

    Whats inappropriate? I am willing to answer any questions you have. I guess you just do not want to hear that it may cost money to fix your car. I would like your brakes to work correctly for your safety and mine. Thanks Dan

1998 expedition driver window fuse or relay

If you hear the relay, you need to pull the door panel and check power at the motor. Power there replace it. No power, the wires tend to break in the rubber boot at the front of the door jam.

Why do my emergency flashers work, but turn signals are intermittent on 2004 ford expedition,what could be the cause of this ?

Cause could be from a worn out multi-function switch (blinker switch)
Filaments heat and expand and decrease in size as current runs to them, basically making and breaking a circuit several times, creating an intermittent switch that supplies current to the lights. These can go out, and will need to be replaced.

1998 Ford Expedition rear break lights not working

check fuses. if all good there i would use a test light to check power to brake light switch on pedal. should be two wires. one will be hot all the time and the other will be hot when brakes are applied. if you have power there and no lights still i would suspect multifunction switch is bad on steering column.

I have changed engines on a 1998 ford expedition 5.4 liter engine the engine i got has yellow fuel injector i suspect the engine is a 1999 5.4 and the car is 1998 it is not running right peae tellme if...

What does "not running right mean"? at the most, put in the fuel injectors from the old engine. You may have gotten Flex Fuel injectors? I would tell you to have the dealer or a garage that does a lot of Ford work check it out.

1998 Expedition Liftgate will not open, how to open it, so that latch can be repair or what ever might be broken. The glass liftgate works. Thank you Alberto

Most have an emergency button to open it...crawl in the back and look at the center of gate for a removeable insert at the center of gate ....some look small and round...others may not..It should just be a small button...just push button and gate should open...owners manual should show this...
some may not.

Break lights are not working on my 2001 ford expedition

You need to replace your brake light switch which is located on your brake pedal. The reason that the right and left are out and the middle isn't is because there are two sides to the switch for vehicles with three brakes lights. It is a very easy part to replace and is relatively inexpensive. Change that switch out and you will be good to go. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
