What do you do if your back wheels feels like they are dragging on your 2003 ford explorer

if you have rear drum brakes a return spring that pulls the brake shoes back to the unapplied position or a hold down spring may have broken which is now causing the brake shoes on that wheel to be applied causing the drag not all people bought there cars and trucks with 4 wheel disc brakes it was cheaper and didn't matter to them they just wanted lower $$$ check it out if this is the case you'll have to turn the adjuster star wheel inside the drum all the way in to get the drum off because the brake is applied it will be a pain but you'll get it you must use a brake spoon or a flat blade screw driver and a smaller one to lift up the return spring arm from the star wheel if this one is broken you will have to try to pry the drum off then buy a spring kit from auto parts and some brake tools if you don't have them already and change all the springs one by one so you don't get confused but also try to get a rear brake shoe diagram in case everything has fallen apart inside and you remove the drum and find a whole bunch of parts on the floor in front of you the diagram will give you the aid that you'll need if you have never done this before most of all inspect that wheel cylinder for leaking fluid if this is so replace it now good luck LATER MAN!

2009 Hyosung GT650R, brake light stays on. How does one fix this problem

There is a switch that is connected mechanically to the rear brake mechanism. If the return spring has broken or the switch is broken or misalligned, that can call your problem as can the front break switch, if fitted.
Hope that helps.

The lever for my back break will not return to its upright position after pressing the break. I think this may be due to the break cable. The pedal has lost its 'springyness' but when pressed the break...

There are four possibilities. From worst to easiest to fix: (don't worry, a link provided below has diagrams of all the parts in exploded view with part names)

1. There are two springs holding the brake shoes firmly against pivot post and brake lever cam, the ends of these can wear through and break. These provide most of the spring tension felt in a cable operated expanding shoe brake. Requires wheel removal and simple removal of brake hub to access.

2. The cam that expands the shoes (when rear lever is actuated) runs through a waterproofing rubber grommet. This grommet can often tear and bind up, reducing the return spring's effectiveness.

3. There is a spring behind the brake's foot pedal frame mount and the plate that pulls the front of the cable end. This maybe either dislodged or the angled ends broken off.

There is a compression spring at rear wheel end of cable, between cable stop and lever arm. This can be removed, stretched and replaced or packed with spacers to provide additional spring.

Check site below: Wheels/tyres/drive - Rear wheel parts #6 (shoe springs) part #7 (brake cam)
Frame/Footrests - part #4 (pedal return spring) part #9 (compression spring)

If this helps let me know below, ...Cheers.
