Ford Fusion Brake Job with Electronic Park Brake

Ford Fusion brake job with electronic parking brake

Starting in 2013, performing a Ford Fusion brake job with electronic parking brake requires you to activate the electronic parking brake (EPB) service mode to remove the rear calipers. Ideally, you should do this with a bidirectional scan tool.

Ford Fusion brake job with electronic parking brake — Activate EPB service maintenance mode

Activating the Ford Fusion EPB service mode is required before replacing rear brake pads. Once the EPB is deactivated, you can compress the caliper piston back into the bore without turning, as you did in the non EPB versions.

1. Set the ignition to ON.
2. Press and hold the accelerator pedal and place the EPB switch to the RELEASE (downward) position.  Continue to hold the accelerator pedal and EPB.
3. Set the ignition to OFF, then set the ignition to ON within 5 seconds. Continue to hold the accelerator pedal and the EPB switch.
4. The EPB system will be deactivated, preventing parking brake application until service has been completed and maintenance mode has been deactivated. The yellow electronic parking brake indicator will be illuminated and maintenance mode will display on the message center.
5. Set the ignition to OFF, then release the accelerator pedal and EPB switch

1. Set the ignition to ON.
2. Press and hold the accelerator pedal and place the EPB switch in the APPLY (upward) position. Continue to hold the accelerator pedal and the EPB switch.
3. Set the ignition to OFF, then set the ignition to ON within 5 seconds. Continue to hold the accelerator pedal and the EPB switch.
4. Release the accelerator pedal and the EPB switch.

Once you complete this step the motor will apply and release the EPB and return it to the proper air gap.
