Mystery module

I have a 96 F350 4x4 w/ 5.8L and no air conditioning. While underneath
my truck replacing the tie rods, I noticed a module a little smaller than my
hand mounted just above and behind the bumper, below the headlight that I
couldn't identify anywhere in my Haynes manual. It's got a handful of wires
in a rectangular connector and goes to the main harness that runs over the
left headlamp, so I wasn't able to connect it to a specific function. What
is it?

Re: Mystery module

Sounds like the crash module, that's not it's technical name, I forget what
it is called technically.

| Air bag sensor?

The truck is an XL, which means there are no extras on it, which means
power nothing and vinyl seats and floors. I needed it to transport my then
very young family, as I can take a water hose to it when I need to clean it
out!

The impact switch for the fuel pump is in front of the right passenger
door in the usual spot.

Anyway, there's no airbags.

Re: Mystery module

Nope, I believe it's some sort of crash sensor, but I don't remember what it
does.

Re: Mystery module

They're putting sensors on when he has no air bags?

Re: Mystery module

If it's a 96, air bags weren't an option, they were a government mandate.
He has a driver's side airbag.

Re: Mystery module

Nope, no air bags. The F350 came from Canada, but to meet US specs it
would have to have them installed. Believe me, I've had a couple
opportunities to have it blow if I had one.....
IIRC, the half ton trucks had a different set of rules, whereas the
heavier you got the later you got to implement.

Re: Mystery module

Carl,
Get the numbers off of the sensor and call a dealer parts counter.
