The Anti-lock Brakes Locked Up While Slowing For A 15mph Curve And The explorer Tracked Straight Ahead. Any And All Braking Seemed Useless During The Attempted Decelaration Process. I’m Tardy In Reporting This Event,but A Similar Accident By Friends Of Ours In A 1993 explorer Made Me Think Thev Whole Accident Over.

While Driving At Approximately 35mpr , Both The Emergency Brake And Antilock Lights Came On. I Pulled Over To Check The Situation. Couldn’t Determine A Problem So Drove Two Blocks To A service Station Where I Determined That I Was Loosing Break Fluid. After Pouring In Brake Fluid And It Came Right Out On The Ground I Left The Car To Be Worked On The Next Day. The Mechanic Found That The Brake Line Was Severed Due To The Main Spring Support Broke And Cut The Brake Line. The Car Was Towed To Another Mechanic Who Did The Repair. The Second Mechanic Suggested That I Report This Very Unusal Failure. He Determined That The Spring Support Rusted Away And The Spring Moved And Cut Brake Line. He Had To Install Spring Support Member Cut Off Rivets And Repair Chassis And New Brake Hose And Steel Lines.

I Believe That A Very Serious Design Flaw Exist In The Brake System On The ford explorer. The Light On My Abs Brakes Would Come On Once In A While Then Go Out. I Think That Most People Would Not Even Notice. It Happened To Me Twice That I Am Aware Of, The First Time I Was Braking Moderately Hard For A Red Light My Vehicle Immediately Spun Hard To The Left I Was Able To Correct It And Regain Control I Was Driving At 40 Mph. The Second Time It Occurred I Was Driving At 50 Mph Under The Exact Same Conditions But This Time I Spun Out And Hit A Curb Damaging My Left Rear Rim And Breaking The Support Cable For My Spare Tire. This Time I Traced The Problem To The Switch On The Brake Fluid Reservoir. On A Vehicle That Spins Out So Easy I Dont Think That It Is A Good Idea To Disable The Abs Brakes With A Low Fluid Sensor. I Had Plenty Of Fluid In My Reservoir The Switch Just Failed, If The Faulty Switch Had Been Set Up To Just Indicate Low Fluid The Dangerous Conditions That Happened Would Not Occurre. This Is A Copy Of The Letter I Sent To ford. I Think That A Lot Of The Roll Over Accidents Are Caused By This Problem.*ak
