It can be the turn signal switch.
Two possibilities. one: there is a switch that when depressed turns on the light, it could be stuck. I haven't looked for one on this car. two: your brake is not fully releasing as cable has gotten rusty. Look under car and see if you can give it a yank and it releases.
It is self-adjusting, normally.
On the brake pedal assembly.
On the brake pedal.
A lubricant on your 1995 Ford Mercury emergency brake can help to get it unstuck. Tapping on the emergency brake with a rubber mallet might also help.
The emergency brake cable is probably seized and the emergency brake is not releasing.
Just normal DOT3 brake fluid.
'P'arking or emergency brake
This is usually cause by a stuck brake light switch on the brake pedal. Replace it.
If the brake lights stay on that probably means the switch on the brake pedal that activates them is defective.

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.
The brakes on the Villager are as straight forward as the brakes on a 1965 Mercury. Only normal brake tools are required.
On the firewall near the brake master cylinder.
Frozen cable not fully releasing? Bad switch at top of emergency brake pedal? Low brake fluid level in master cylinder?
because there is a short somewhere
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.
Remove the two slider screws that hold it in place.
A 1997 Villager has a red button behind the driver side kick panel next to parking brake pedal. I found it by going to Ford.com/parts down loaded the owners manual. If you don't have the owners manual thy this.
