Question about 1996 Ford F350 Crew Cab
My father is on the road as I type this with a problem that just came up. The brake pedal got hard and the brake light comes on when he applies the brakes but goes out after it returns all the way. Any suggestions on what it could be. He said that it will stop, he just needs to be real careful.
My '96 f350 7.3 did the same thing. It was working fine I drove to the store then came out and the brake was hard. Then it was fine then hard again......turned out to be my vacuum pump. $100 fix now it brakes fine.
Hope this helps!

It sounds like the vacuum boost is missing; he needs to stop, turn off the engine, press ******* the brake pedal and note whether it sinks a little once the ngine is running.
If it does, then the vacuum motor for the brake boost is OK; if not - I have no other answers.
If it has ABS and it has failed, there would be a specific warning light for that, one you see when first turning the ignition on along with the other warning lights.
