problem with switch.
I've got a 1998 Ranger. It appears that it has the switch that is
Explorer without IVD 1995-2003
Explorer Sport/Sport Trac 2002-2003
The article states: "The switch is located under the hood of the vehicle and
is attached to the brake master cylinder on one end and wired to the cruise
control on the other. On most of its models, Ford designed the switch to be
powered -- or "hot" -- at all times, even when the vehicle is off and the
key is removed from the ignition. Inside the switch, a thin film barrier
separates brake fluid from the switch's electrical components. Investigators
say fires can occur when the film cracks and brake fluid from the master
cylinder seeps into the electrical side of the switch."
Does anyone have any info or a schematic of this switch?
