Okay I'm asking for a friend...on the way to work the tire blew out, fine put on the donut, well the "road ranger" was helping out and said to put on the e-brake, (which in my opinion is not really needed snce it's an automatic (FORD windstar)....well now the e-brake handle will not release (go back down). Why?
And for a while now, which I'm not sure is realted or not but the brake light & ABS brake light have been coming off & on, Why? The fluid level is good and the brakes stop the car. I haven't personnally looked at it, because I don't wanna, but any advice would be great just so I can relay back.
Also, after a small test drive, the driver says there doesn't seem to be any resistance while driving, but can't go very fast due to the donut anyway. But after a test smell to the back wheels, it didn't smell like the the back brakes were grinding anyway.
Does this make sense? Please give me some advice. Thanks
