Same as all cars-start at the closest wheel to the master cylinder and have one person pump until they feel pressure- pump FIRMLY. Hold and the other person under the car open the bleeder and drains air from line repeat until there isno air and move to next closest line OR buy a vacuum bleeder(about $30) and do it the same way as far as closest wheel-but just do them and make sure you keep fluid in the master at all times while you do it either way. Good luck!

I changed the master cylinder in my 1998 Mercury Villager and the brake still goes all the way down.

If there is a bleeder at the master cyl. you will need to bleed it as well as the wheels. If still no pedal you have a leak pulling air into the system.

I have a 95 Villager with Anti Lock Brakes. I replaced the Pads, Calipers, Shoes and Front Brake lines. I bled the brakes according to the repair manual but, the brake light is on and the pedal still goes...

The brake bleed may not have been successful. Always bleed the right rear brake first then the left. Next the front right and then the left. If you are using someone to work the brake pedal make sure they hold it down until you have closed the bleed nipple. Make sure you use a little hose on the nipple and into a jar with fluid in it to watch for the bubbles to stop. Make sure the master cylinder always has enough fluid in it.
There is a brake bleeding kit that can be bought, this makes the job a lot easier.

Change breaks and caliper but the mechanic purge the breaks and they still go all the way down, i dont know if if anything different you need to do

check you master cylinder, It is probably is the cause and needs rebuild/ replacement. Also check for vacuum line leaks in and about the vacuum booster canister. Bleed the brake lines again to be sure...

Make sure the brake hoses are not colasped and holding pressure on the brake liners,and if the hoses are fine,then replace the master cylinder.

Mercury villager brakes drag when driving

replace the flexible hoses, they are collapsing inside, preventing fluid from returning to reservoir.

If you have checked all your fuses and the brake light bulbs are good then the brake light switch might be bad, it should be located on a bracket at the top of the brake pedal. when you press on the brake pedal it pushes this switch in to activate the brake light's.

have you checked to see if the alternator is working? If it isn't the battery is being drained. You may have lights and all but the cranking power is drained therefore you don't have enough juice to start it. So check the alternator and if possible do an obd 2 scan at autozone or advance auto
