Does the turn signal work? Sometimes a damaged turn signal switch can cause the brake lights to fail. Yes, apparently the turn signals are operational.

Answer

Please check your brake pedal switch, get yourself a flashlight and inspect it( it's above the brake pedal pad), it may be disconnected or defective, you can get a replacement at your local auto parts store. This happened to me when somebody stepped on my brake pedal very strongly( i was told). I replaced it and it worked as new.Good luck!

Have Ford check out the Brake Shift Interlock. It is designed so the transmission cannot be shifted without the brake depressed. The Ford might be under warranty, so you could get it repaired free

Brake lights are on continuously while you are driving. Every time the brake pedal is depressed.

To put brake fluid in a 1997 Ford Explorer, you must locate the brake fluid reservoir. Once you locate it, unscrew the cap, and replenish the brake fluid.

Possibly the brake light switch at the brake pedal has stayed depressed or stuck.

To replace the brake light on a 2000 Ford Explorer, remove the screws holding the brake light in place. Gently, but firmly, pull the brake light out of the vehicle and replace with a new one.

If both brake light bulbs fail to come on when the brake is depressed I'd check first to see if there may be a fuse that controls the brake light circuit. If there is no fuse and/or the fuse appears to be okay, the most likely culprit is a faulty brake light switch. This switch is located up and behind the brake pedal. There is a plunger that moves in and out acting as a switch when the brake pedal is depressed. It is this switch which possibly may be the culprit.

I'm not a mechanic / technician but the power brake booster is between the brake fluid reservoir and the firewall on your 2001 Ford Explorer ( located in the engine compartment on the drivers side )

Check brake fluid level. Check parking brake switch- make sure it is fully depressed and has not become misaligned.

User Avatar

It is the distance between floorboard and pedal top, when the brake pedal is fully depressed (after applying brakes).

If the brake light in your dash is on , either the BRAKE FLUID LEVEL in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW or your parking brake is on
