Best Answer

I am presuming that you mean the parking Brake light It may be a loose wire or your parking brake (pedal and arm)needs to be tightened. You may also have to tighten the switch

If your brake light is on that inducates that your brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW ( assuming that your emergency brake isn't on ) Having a low brake fluid level will also turn on your ABS light

Usually when the anti-lock brake light comes on and stays on it means there is something wrong with your anti-locking brake system. You may want to look up recalls for your year of crown vic, and definitely get the car in and have it looked over.
