Anyone have a wiring schematic for the Brake Pedal Position Switch?
I specifically need to know where the Red wire with Green stripe goes?
well, if you unplug it and things are OK... then the wiring from the switch to the plug is OK. It then follows that the problem is from the plug to the actual module.... ASSUMING that you have looked very carefully at the plug to ensure that the pins align properly when plugging in. Further, take a meter and measure the resistance on the module "inputs" to see what the wiring is looking at. Lastly, check ALL your fuses... I know you did but humor me. You may have a fuse gone somewhere else that is causing something "to steal power".
Of course, lastly, as part of your testing, you tested your shift interlock "switch" electrically (resistance).
I probably can't help there as I only have 96 stuff which says "steering column"... ... :-( Basically, my guess is that you have a greater draw than the fuse because one of the components has an "marginal issue". My guess, and it truly is a guess, is that its the steering lock.... marginal "solenoid" (I think its solid state though) maybe.... but again just a guess based on no experience... just a read of schematics and "block diagrams"....
No Problem, I do appreciate your input very much.
That Red/Green wire coming off the Brake Pedal Position Switch has a dead short to ground which I assume is why it is poping the fuse as soon as I hit the brake pedal. I found a Red/Green wire on the ABS Control module and it doesn't have a dead short to ground. I'm wondering if the wire goes from the brake pedal position switch to the shift interlock then to the ABS module, or directly to the ABS module.
That site you provided for the wiring diagrams seems to be down right now, I can get logged in ok but when I try to pull up a wiring diagram it times out.
The wiring diagram showed the rd/grn wire going from the position switch directly to the ABS module. However, I don't remember if there was another rd/grn wire leaving the ABS module to go somewhere else - just didn't look that close. Also, if the rd/grn wire is broken between the two componets only one side of the break could be shorted. Try upplugging both connectors and measuring for continuity between the rd/grn on the ABS and the rd/grn on the position switch. I couldn't get into the wiring diagram just now either - first time that I can remember that happening.
It only shows that wire grounded when the ABS connector is plugged in to the ABS module at the pump, if I unplug it then no short, would assume short in module but I have already replaced it.
The wire locations I told you are straight from the Ford EVTM (Electrical Vacuum Troubleshooting Manual) for an '01 Sport. Its the official wiring diagram straight from Ford, printed by Ford, for the Ford dealerships. There is more to that circuit then just the ABS module. I would start checking the other components I listed and the related wiring.
my guess is that it is the ground going to turn on your abs light.
