On my 1998 ford contour every time i put on the brakes car pulls to the right i have changed rotors pads calipers and bled the lines can anyone help me out pleassssse

I would start by checking the suspension. There is most likely some play in a control arm bushing, ball joint, or tie rod or something. Worn suspension parts can cause this and they will pull to the side that has a problem, if it pulls right, the bad part will be on the right. My guess is it's a worn control arm bushing.

1998 contour parking lites on left side front & rear do not work, bulbs are good.

The problem isnt a "fuse" The problem is either a bad ground to that circuit or the turn signal arm is faulty. If it were a fuse no signals would work. You can also check the blinker relay(flasher) which is also known to be faulty and cheaper to fix. wf

1999 Ford Contour. Front wheels binding when

Check your Control arm bushings and or your ball joints. The bushings are known to wear out easily and the replacement control arm with ball joint included is only around $150.00. You can check the control arm by putting vehicle on jack stands and with a pry bar pry between the frame and control arm. If there is excessive movement then replacement is required, also when the car is in this position try to pivot your wheel top and bottom(in and out) and this checks the ball joint.
