DOT 3 brake fluid
DOT ( 3 ) brake fluid , if that is what you are asking ?
According to the 2003 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Guide : ( DOT 3 brake fluid , meeting Ford specification ESA-M6C25-A )

bad switch or possibly stuck switch
No , ABS is the anti-lock brake system
If the ((ABS)) Light is on then it's a good thing indicating that the Antilock brakes sensor is in good condition. I too have a 2002 mountaineer
If locks have also stopped locking automatically, then you will have to change the brake switch located on the brake pedal. Go to a local auto shop and pick one up. It is easy to replace. Just look how the original is mounted, it is not too complicated.
back up close to a door or building... press brake pedal... look into mirror to see if lts are lit
Disc brakes ( with small brake shoes in the back of the rotors for your parking / emergency brake )
look in the owners manual. However should be by the emergency brake you have to get on the floor and look up
the bulb has fused or broken or the electronics need fixing
Lift the car, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/caliper, and remove the old brake pads. Put in the new brake pads, replace the brake shoe/caliper, replace the tire, and lower the car.
Bad wheel bearing? Brake pads worn?
check the brake light switch
According to the 2008 Mercury Mountaineer owners manual : In the Power Distribution Box ( which is " live " ) located in the engine compartment near the brake fluid reservoir : ( mini fuse # 28 is a 20 amp fuse for the heated SEATS )
It should have only a fuse and a switch, no relay. Check ALL of the fuses with a test light.

The red " BRAKE " warning light in your dash comes on if the emergency brake / parking brake is on , or if the BRAKE FLUID LEVEL in the brake master cylinder ( located in your engine compartment , near the firewall , on the drivers side of the engine compartment ) IS LOW
To change the rear brake light on a Mercury Villager, the tail gate must first be lifted. This allows access to the lens, which must be removed with a screwdriver. Then, the bulb may be replaced.
