2006 fusion rear brakes self-adjust too much and wear out pads very fast. Any way to defeat self adjuster??

not a good move
better to take the vehicle to an accredited brake repair specialist and have the movement of the callipers and adjusted cleaned and repaired or simply fit new callipers to the rear
or if drum brakes , have the cable s replaced as they may be rusting up internally and jamming up

Brake jam in two wheels and brake paddle becom hard

It sounds like you have lost air pressure to your master cylinder via a tube from your engine. Or a Immobiliser has interferred with the operation of the braking.

Brakes jammed on

The causes and remedy for brake jamming:
As a first aid, loosen and then tighten any one of the front wheel bleeding nipple. This will free up the brakes.
- Front calipers pins jammed. (Re-grease the pins with graphite grease)
- Front calipers pistons jammed. (Remove the caliper one by one, do not remove the brake pipe, depress the brake pedal only one time then release, lift the caliper boot at one side with abrupt tool, just as we lift up our eye lid with thumb and index finger, pour few drops of brake oil DOT 3 into the boot, push back the piston to allow the caliper to fit on pads.
- Rear wheel's pistons jammed. (Free up the pistons, inspect the brake washers, replace rear wheel cylinders if brake washers are found swollen).
- Brake master cylinder defective. The brake jamming problem often arises when the brake master cylinder washers swell up due to aging or using wrong grade of brake oil. In such cases the washers expand and block the return line of the brake oil. If so, replace the brake master cylinder with original one.

How do I adjust brake pedal on my mower

  1. Press down on the clutch pedal and set the parking brake.
  2. 2Identify the brake adjustment feature, located below the brake operating arm. It includes a jam nut, regular nut and rod. Measure the distance between the brake operating arm and the regular nut. The regular nut is distinct from the jam nut -- the jam nut is the outer nut.
  3. 3Loosen the jam nut and turn the regular nut so that it's exactly 1-1/2 inches between the arm and regular nut. Double-check that the parking brake is engaged, then re-tighten the jam nut so it abuts the regular nut and holds it in place at the correct distance. Try the riding mower stopping procedure again in a safe place.

Abs light wont turn off after fixing problem with a jammed rear break.

unplugging the battery should clear it, try doing it for 5 or 10 minutes just in case, the only other way is to clear it with a OBD2 capable scan tool, also there could be an issue you havnt noticed and that was caused due to jammed brake. some parts stores will let you use thier scan tool provide the car is at the store, i would scan it just to double check the code then use the scan tool to clear it. most shucks/oreilleys parts store can do this

Brake master cylander

Not mentioned about what the fault was but if this is leaking or is jammed then the master repair KIT has to be replaced which includes the brake bucket . If the piston is jammed then the brake cylinder or piston must be changed.

Where is the shift lock overide reease button on

should be able to shift when u press brake pedal, if not press pedal and see if brake lights work if brake light switch is bad this can effect the shift control. if this is not issue then the shifter is jamming and the stifting linkage is most likely worn or out of alignment and should be repaired

2004 chevy venture will not shift from park. The engine is running and the brake pedal is pressed.

The blocking bracket might be jammed. Stop the engine, nudge the car a little and try again to move the lever without pressing the brake pedal. 
If this works move the lever several times to loosen the bracket, leave it in neutral, press the brake pedal  and start the engine. Leave it running at idle for a while , till the oil heats up - 5-10 minutes , depending how cold is outside. Then repeat the lever movement till the efort becomes neglijable. If it doesn't or jams again take the car to the repair shop, it needs tinkering.

Shifter jammed

there is a switch on the brake pedal. I had to replace one on mother in laws tarus. it is the switch that is made when you have to press brake pedal. check to see if your taillights are working. you can take switch apart fairly easily and clean copper contacts with sand paper. just scuff a little. it could be a linkage issue but it could just as easily be that switch.

Gear shifter

Sounds like just the brake-shift interlock getting stuck. I would try using the override to get the shifter working again, then use the parking brake to keep it from getting jammed in the future.

The parking brake will reduce the pressure on the gearbox, especially when parked on an incline. If the interlock continues to jam, you probably do need to have the shifter replaced.
