The Rear Anti-Lock Brakes (RABS) diagnostic connector located on the main wire bundle inside of cab under dash, slightly aft of the 53 pin connector, driver's side, connected to mating Keep Alive Memory (KAM) connector.
nope..........only that you have to do a little digging to find it.The plug is close to the Firewall, & if it hasn't been pulled out before, is held by a plastic holder.
HelloCustomer The RABS self test connector is located behind the passenger side kick panel.
Location C-1 in the diagram. It has a Red wire on one side of the connector and a Black/Orange stripped wire on the other side of the connector. Unplug the connector and ground the Black/Orange wire with the key on. You will get a flash out code. Count the flashes and post them here on this post. we'll go from there.
Yes. I have Ford Manuals from Ford and the connector is located behind the passenger side kick panel for rear ABS. Please look.
This is from the 1999 Ranger shop manual. Location C-1 in the diagram.
Black wire with and Orange stripe on one side of the connector and Red wire on the other side of the connector. To tell if you have 4 wheel ABS, under the hood near the brake master cylinder will be the HCU (hydualic control unit). It has serveral brake lines going into and out of it. Also you can check the front wheels and see if you have a wire harness going to the front rotor along with the brake line.
This is the HCU for 4 wheel ABS.
just a standard code reader plugged into the wide connection under the steering wheel will give me the info? Or are we talking about a special reader?
