Hello I will help you with your question,
If you follow the metal brake lines from the master cylinder there is a brake proportioning valve near the steering shaft. The SCDS or brake switch is located on the end of the valve on your vehicle.
Here is a copy of the bulletin for the recall, let me know if you have further questions about this

The Speed Control Deactivation Switch (SCDS) involved in Recall 05S28 and the revised SCDS is illustrated below. See Figure 1.
Note that the revised SCDS has a different electrical connector. A jumper adapter (which is included in the parts kit) is required when replacing the old SCDS with the revised SCDS.
In most late model year vehicles involved in this recall, the SCDS is located on the master cylinder. In early model year vehicles (1992-1998), the SCDS may be located on the master cylinder but is often found on a brake line distribution block or on the brake proportioning valve. If in doubt, just follow the metal brake lines from the master cylinder until the switch is found.
FUSED JUMPER HARNESS (FJH) IDENTIFICATION
The new universal fused jumper harness has a double fuse instead of a single fuse. See Figure 2.

SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH (SCDS) INSPECTION

FUSED JUMPER HARNESS (FJH) INSTALLATION
SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH (SCDS) REPLACEMENT
NOTE :The brake pedal must not be depressed during the removal and replacement of the SCDS.
NOTICE : The 1994 Capri Brake Repair Kit contains a brass sealing washer. Install the brass washer onto the SCDS before installing it on the vehicle.
NOTE :Call the Special Service Support Center for assistance if brake fluid does not flow from the SCDS fitting when the SCDS is removed.
NOTE :If the new SCDS is not installed immediately after the original switch is removed, the master cylinder brake fluid could drop below the minimum level and air could enter the brake system. If this should occur, air must be bled from the brake system at all 4 wheels. In this situation, the labor to bleed the brake system will not be covered under this program.
