What is wrong when the emergency brake light comes on when braking sometimes on a Mercury Villager and it is getting worse?

Check brake fluid level--I believe both service and "e" brake use the same light. Low brake fluid could indicate leak (Need service NOW) or brake pads need replacing due to excessive wear Try engaging the brake all the way then releasing it. It might just be sticking. The ebrake sensor could be malfunctioning. It is usually located along the ebrake pedal somewhere. Hope this helps.

I assume you mean Anti-lock braking system. It prevents your wheels from locking up in an emergency stop situation, or when it detects that the wheel slippage rate is occurring at different rates under braking conditions.

The motor mounts should not keep breaking if they are installed properly. The delay in the transmission indicates it needs work, probably a rebuild.

Anti-lock braking systems are very good on wet roadways with less then normal or little friction?

The anti-lock braking system usually reduce the skidding that occurs when tires lock and therefore allows the driver more control during emergency braking. Having the tires on ABS can help a stranded driver to veer away from emergency situations.


What is anti skid system?

The terminology for this system is ABS (anti-lock braking system). This prevents wheels from locking while braking heavily. The reson behind this is that when a wheel is locked, it cannot steer, which can lead to accidents. The point of ABS is not reduce the braking distance, but to alllow this vital steering while emergency braking.

What is EBS on a car?

The Electronic Brake assist System (EBS) is a very efficient aid in emergency braking situations when the driver wants the vehicle to stop as quickly as possible. In these situations, most drivers apply the brake fast, but not with the maximum pressure, and this insufficient braking power leads to dangerously long braking distances. The system is triggered when the brake assist recognizes the fast and hard braking by the driver classified as typical 'emergency braking' and activates the maximum braking power immediately. Therefore even moderate pedal force leads to maximum deceleration. This can help avoid an accident or reduce its seriousness, due to decreased vehicle speed at the moment of collision.

No, it locks up on the brakes

What does anti-lock braking systems prevent when used in an emergency stopping situation?

Anti-lock breaks are designed to prevent wheels from skidding, or lossing traction in the case of an emergency stop.

How do you disconnect the anti-lock braking sysytem on a 1993 Mercury Villager?

Even if you removed all of the components that make the ABS system function, the computer would miss it terribly and would put up a most horrendous fuss including bells, whistles, and flashing lights. If the system is malfunctioning, take to a qualified mechanic and have it repaired. It is truly in your best interest and those who ride with you.
