Did you refer to your shop manual as suggested?

One thing you might try is disconnecting the vacuum hose at the power brake booster after the car is parked and then see if the brake lights still come on. There is a check valve in the vacuum line from the engine and also a tee that connects the power brake booster to a reserve vacuum tank located in the left front fender. If the brake lights don't come on after doing this, then the p/b booster and adjustments should be checked. If the lights still come on, then it is time to check the hydraulic side of the system and determine why pressure is building in the system. BTW, do you still have the factory single acting master cylinder?

Thanks Nyles !! I'll try the things you suggested. Yes it still has the single master which I rebuilt and the inside bore was perfect. Mike

Mike, you have not said if you own a Shop Manual for your Tbird. If you do not have one, you need one to help you troubleshoot this. You can get one from any of the many Tbird parts houses. They are all listed in the Advertisements Forum...
