I don't think brake lights use a relay. There is usually a switch behind the brake pedal that activates the brake lights and disengages the shift lock mechanism. Should be easy to find and replace.

Hello everyone. I need some assistance in figuring out why my battery light stays on after i changed to alternator. I checked to battery and it is good and the alternator is charging, Yet the battery light stays on and well as the "check charging system" message is displayed. my truck cuts off periodically while driving and even when idling or parked and the heat doesn't send hot air through the truck unless the truck is in motion.
I'm very frustrated at this point, any good advise....please help

This may sound crazy, but my avaitor was having a similar issue and all it ended up being was the radiator fluid level was low. Be sure to check that. Don't know how the battery warning light was connected but with Lincolns who knows how anything is connected!! Good luck.
#1895 of 1950 gas milage woes
Jan 16, 2010 (9:55 pm)
I did my research and I knew when I bought my 04 awd aviator a couple months ago that gas milage was going to be somewhere around 14mpg but my wife drives it back and forth to take the kids to school the store etc... never really on the highway and its getting 9.1 mpg the past two tanks. has anyone added chips, exhaust, coldair intakes, or an other modifications with any success in increasing the mpg's on the aviator. Also the cold air intake I have been looking around I dont really see one available for the aviator I know I can mod a different one to work but is anyone using the coldair right now if so did you notice an improvement?

Has anyone installed a head cooling mod to their Aviator???
I am probably going to do this even tho mine already has 80K on it... I just bought my 03 a few days ago.....well...better late than never hopefully this cooling mod can delay the almost inevitable Head replacement.
Are there any positive and happy stories on the Aviator??
Especially those who have successfully fought the dealer and Ford to owning up to the Head repair? or at least reduce the repair cost...

#1898 of 1950 04 Aviator Power Window Issue
Apr 02, 2010 (10:48 am)
My 04 Aviator has been an excellent car since I bought it new. About a year ago,
the rear seat passenger side window stopped working.A few months later, I happened to hit that button and it worked. A few weeks later it stopped working.
Now the driver side passenger window is doing the same thing...sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. I don't believe it's a fuse...they wouldn't work at all.
Wiring?? Something else??
Anyone ever have this issue?

Hey there, have you received any replys on cold air intakes or learned anything more in your search? I have an 03 and am researching the same idea to increase my boat towing capacity. "Airaid" make some UBI or you build it universal intakes that I have just started to look at, but short of a K&N air filter swap, I don't feel great about an intake yet. I dont want to create a new set of problems for a minor HP increase.

#1901 of 1950 2004 aviator front brake calipers
Apr 28, 2010 (4:36 am)
I have always changed my own brakes on my ford mustangs, taurus and explorer. I now own a 2004 Aviator. I tried changing the front pads last night and and could not remove the caliper assembly to even get to the pads. Both bolts were removed and the caliper assembly was loose and sloppy, but something was caught up and wouldnt allow me to remove the assembly. It was as though there was something metal purposely on there to keep it fomr coming off. I saw no clip or other bolt that would have needed to come off. Its as though the caliper cylinders wer hung up. I am at a lost as to how to remove the assembly.
