1998 Mercury Villager Break light switch

I replaced the lower break light switch on my 1998 Mercury Villager as the old switch would cause the break lights to stay on even after i stopped the vehicle running my the battery down. Once I replaced the switch it solved the problem for a day but the next morning I found my battery dead again. The problem seems to be the switch because the lights shut off after I remove the fuse for same. Do I have a short? I can't imagine that the switch I purchased is bad also.

Brake light circuit goes through turn signal switch. Do turn signals work ok? Does high mount stop lamp do this too? If you disconnect brake switch, do the lights go off? Do you have trailer tow? Maybe that wire is an issue. I would check brake switch first again. Maybe out of position.

I think you need to adjust the switch.

Installation

  1. Install the BPP switch.
  1. Adjust the BPP switch. Refer to the procedure in this section.
  1. Tighten the BPP switch locknut to 12-15 Nm (9-11 lb-ft).
  1. Connect the BPP switch electrical connector.
  1. Connect the battery ground cable.
Section 17-01: Lighting, Exterior 1998 Villager Workshop Manual
ADJUSTMENTS Brake Pedal Position (BPP) Switch
  1. Measure the distance between the brake pedal stopper and the threaded end of the brake pedal position (BPP) switch. The BPP switch height (A) should be 0.3-1.0mm (0.012-0.039 inch).

  1. If the BPP switch height is not within specification, loosen the BPP switch locknut.
  1. Adjust the BPP switch until the height is within specifications.
  1. Tighten the BPP switch locknut to 12-15 Nm (9-11 lb-ft).

98 mercury villager OBD I code P0135

Hi
my 98 villager have check engine light with code P0135. So I replaced a sensor ''ensor located before catalytic converter'' After driving little bit the same code came back again.

please reply
Thank you in advance

This code refers to the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1. The heated circuit in the oxygen sensor decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0135.
Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors.
Since you have already changed out your O2 sensor (as long as you used to OEM replacement and not the "Universal" replacement) you should not have to replace it again. You might check your thermostat to part of the time it takes for the O2 sensor to start switching being based on coolant temp, if your thermostat is not operating properly, it could cause the coolant temp to take longer than what is considered by the ECM to be normal.

I just find this (click over this link for zoom)...

9_30_2011_3_42_10_pm.jpg

Fig. Exploded view of the rear drum brake assembly - LINK
The rear brakes do not require manual adjustment. Adjust the shoes by sharply applying the brake pedal several times while driving the vehicle alternately forwards and backwards. Check the brake operation by making several stops while driving forward. The self-adjusting mechanism will sufficiently adjust the rear brake shoes without any manual tightening at the brake shoe adjuster. If the rear brake shoes are manually adjusted, the additional action of the brake shoe adjuster can cause the brakes to become over-tightened and result in binding or overheated rear brakes.

Hope this helps.
