I don't have a manual for my 96 f-150 to look this up. Brakes seem fine, maybe a bit mushy, but my ABS light comes on in non-slick conditions. Also my parking brake light will come on without deploying the parking brake. Have not had time to check this out as it is currently raining on my truck.
I checked the fluid when it stopped raining. The rubber "boot" inside was missing and sitting by the air cleaner. I had the truck in for clutch pedal issues and I think his mechanic checked the wrong fluid resevoir and forgot to put back the "boot". I don't know. The fluid was low; I topped it off and replaceed the "boot" but the lights remain on. Brakes seem to work. I guess I'll need to "reset" these lites as resetting the PCM has no effect. Where?
Lights ABS Brake came back on. Boot is distended again. But most concerning; had no pedal when pressed first time this morning until I pumped it. (Ran a stop sign). Sat all day and pedal is still good? No signs of fluid at any wheels? Pedal is somewhat mushy but dies not slowly sink to floor when pressed hard. Really worried about the total loss of pedal. Ideas??
I've bled many brake systems soI'll illicit my daughters "foot" services. All weekend I've had pedal. Still a little soft I think. Can not get it to sink even with heavy pressure. Driving it with lots of room between cars and always pre-pump pedal. No lights and no problem so far. Was thinking of replacing the Master anyway I found the boot was not seated properly and I had had a difficult time replacing the cap last time. Saturday I corrected these issues and think perhaps that contributed to the problem. Still don't know about the one time total loss of brake pedal.
