My daughter was driving my 99 Taurus (47,000 miles, V6 automatic) to a wedding this weekend when she noticed the emergency brake was still on. She released it (she was on the expressway at the time) and continued on her way. As she tried to slow down while exiting the expressway, the brake pedal went all the way to the floor. Luckily she was able to avoid any accidents, and the brakes returned to normal shortly thereafter. I was wondering if the fact that she was driving with the emergency brake on had anything to do with the brakes' failure immediately thereafter? Thanks for your help -
have the same problem?
