You might want to contact Ford. There was a class action lawsuit regarding bad brake pressure sensor that caught fire. Gentleman in Iowa died in garage fire attributed to defect. Might want to contact a lawyer.

Did you check the fuses for both of them ?

Do the parking lamps work ?
- If not check the ground on the bulb connector.

When was the last time you changed the bulbs ? ( Could be the element is blown out ).

My 1998 ford f150 4x4 has electrial problems. The dome light, power windows, wipers,electric door locks are not working. Any ideas


Hi, this might be caused by a blown fuse. Check all fuses as there are some systems integrated with others running from the same fuse. If all the fuses are fine you will need to look at the earth connections and power supplies to the systems.

Popping noise from rear end


I would check out the universal joints. Crawl under the vehicle and see if there is any play in them by trying to move around the drive shaft. If there is excessive play then the u joints are the problem. Hope this helps and good luck.

I am trying to replace the clutch, pressure plate, and release bearing in a 1997 Chevy S-10 ext. cab 4x4, ZR-2. I have (7) bolts out and I cannot get the transmission to release from the block at the bell...


If you're sure you have all the bell housing bolts out. try to soak the bell housing alignment steel dowels, they are on both lower sides of bell housing. some times they freeze into the housing.
good luck , chris
