Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
The other day I pulled back my parking brake on my Ford Fusion 2010 sport model. The brake flung down to its resting, disengaged position after 3 seconds of being engaged and made a loud noise while doing so. I believe the cause was that I used to pull back the brake lever while pressing in the release button on the end because I didn't know it pulled back on its own. Now, the parking brake indicator light won't turn off and the warning sound for the parking brake goes off for several minutes before turning off. The light won't go off and my cruise control no longer functions. I can press the cruise control "on" button and this registers in the dash, but it will not allow me to activate it. My main concern right now is to have my cruise control working for my 22 hour drive back in two weeks. Any suggestions as to how I can get my cruise control to function again? I'm thinking I broke my parking brake switch inside my center console, but I am just worried about the cruise controle currently.

Get down and look at parking brake assembly, If you see an electrical connector, unplug it, see if that helps? If it doesn't help or causes other issues just plug it back in.
Of course that isn't the proper fix. If something wrong with parking brake assembly, get it checked out.

Th is is how I fixed mine! Down on the brake pedal there is a small plastic box about 1 1\2 * 1 1\2 in size. It's called the brake stop light, I think. This part disengages the cruise when the brake is pressed. Not sure on it's other uses! Remove the clip from the part where it attatches the the pedal. For more working room you can remove the plastic keeper. The box has three keepers on it. Pry them out gently to remove the top. Two of the copper pieces inside will have contacts on them about the size of a match stick head. Take them out and clean them with an eraser. This solved my problem, I hope it solves yours. Let Me KNOW!
