Keypad is battery operated on all Ford,Lincoln and Mercury vehicles.Batteries are NOT easily replaced.These units self destruct when opened.New units are available for about 75.00.

It would be against the law for a motor manufacturer to fit a light which could cause the brakes to fail.

On a 1991 Lincoln Continental : I'm not a mechanic / technician but I have never heard of aluminum heads for the 3.8 litre Ford V6 engine So , I would assume they are cast iron

It would either be a bad wire in the circuit from the brake light switch on the brake pedal to the bulbs, OR the bulbs have 2 filaments in them and the one that comes on when you apply the brakes are worn out, OR someone put the wrong bulbs in(single filament). I would change the 2 bulbs first.

Would have been built for R12, can be converted to R134a.

No, as being a master mechanic, it would have nothing to do with it.

This could be for a few reasons, but if they are getting hot without you applying them, I would suggest that they are sticking and causing the pads to rub on the discs, or if they are drum brakes, the shoes on the drums. If they are only getting hot as a result of using the brakes, I would suggest checking that the brakes are balanced properly, and that the front brakes are not doing all of the work/ or that the back brakes are working at all.

That would be found on the transmission where the linkage hooks up.

I would suspect a defective Master Cylinder. Fluid leak.

There is a problem with the SRS...have a dealer check it.

Check the operation and alignment of the stop light switch - usually located at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area

If I were asking here it would mean I have never changed brakes before. Although the process is fairly simple you can do things wrong that would prevent the brakes from working properly. Your first time needs to be with the oversight of someone who has changed brakes before. Better yet, have a qualified mechanic do it for you. Your life and the lives of others may hang in the balance.

Lincoln Continental, although some people would call this a boat, not a car.

Check the air bag suspension. Also, the pump may be bad.

You would adjust the brakes on a vehicle with abs brakes the same way you would adjust the brakes on a vehicle without abs brakes.

Have your brake system checked immediately! (by a proffesional)

Leak in hydraulic system? Brake linings worn? Brake linings glazed?
