Recent Brake Change And No Break Assist

Post by nwbailq7 » Mon Jan 18, 2016 6:19 pm

I recently had someone change the pads and discs in my 88 Scorpio. I now no longer have break assist. Does anyone know what may have caused this?

What do you mean by brake assist? Does your car stop/does it require more effort? Any light on the dashboard? Try to be little bit more specific.....

My understanding of brake assist means no booster..... kinda pointless posting without more details.....

Hey, I have no ABS.....

Unless some brave "mecahanic" snapped his sensor(s)...
