try bleeding the abs lines on the abs booster under the hood it has an electric motor attached to it and is hooked directly from thebrake master cylinder it adds extra boost pressure to the brakes so you wont have to pump up the brakes when making a hard stop when traveling at a high rate of speed. try driving in an empty lot or road about 30 to 35mph then stepping on the brake real hard like if u were making an emergency stop you should hear the boost motor rev up and the wheels will stop an roll on and off several times until completly stopped then you will know its working but do not ever bypass that function unless the vehical is being built strictly for offroad uses only.
Could be alot of things and sounds very serious and dangerous...Need to have mechanic look at it....I would not fill comfortable giving suggestion as to what it could be....PLEASE have mechanic look at it.....good luck and hope info helps...
This vehical is notorious for problems, regardless of year 2000-2009, Same vehical as ford escape, mercury, You can disconnect the battery for 30 mins to reset indicator or You can go to most auto parts stores and have them put it on a check engine scanner for free and they can tell you what to replace plus they can clear the codes., but chances are with this vehical its going to be tranny related and big problems down the road. My friend just bought one 3 months ago with 70,000 miles and the tranny just burnt up o/d and reverse. $2000 fix. We had done a ton of research on this vehical and only found more problems. We were gonna do it ourselves but aamco had a sweet deal with warranty. Sell.Sell.Sell.
It could be a d-rail, but also could be spokes, chain rub, wheel hitting a brake pad, tire clearance at frame, bearings. Put your bike upside down so you can turn the pedals while you check for where this may be coming from. Take your time... these noises can "telegraph' thru the frame and fool you so look for visible signs, use a little chain lube, oil , etc and you'll be able to pin point your noise. I had an issue on my high end road bike.. a clicking while pedaling uphill...very annoying... turned out to be the added pressure caused the rear wheel spokes to click at the crossover point... a little heat shrink tubing did a nice alteration without a spoke pressure increase... So look around , start eliminating the possiblitites and you'll find it!
I think I help you here. Sounds like a bad brake switch. This is what tells the computer you have accuated the brake pedal to take the vehical out of park. Chances are your brake lights are not coming on as well. Check this switch out, it's located under the dash on the driver's side, behind the brake pedal. Hope this helps, good luck!
I did some searching and didn't come across much in the way of lift kits for your car. I found air-ride suspension setups which will allow you to raise it somewhat, but those aren't really meant for rock-crawling. To be honest though, your vehicle isn't really meant for it either (very few are - notable vehicles that are honestly meant for that stuff are the Jeep Wranglers and various Land/Range Rovers). The manufacturers make all kinds of claims about off-road abilities, but since the vast majority of owners never go farther offroad than their driveways, there really isn't much emphasis put into the design of SUVs anymore for offroading.
I did find one site that had a ton of items for your vehicle, and you can check it out here (this is their subpage meant directly for your car):
You could page through and see what they have, and you can always call them and see if they can sell you offroading gear, or refer you to someone who does. I doubt you'd be the first person that has asked them and I'm sure someone makes the gear for your truck.
