'93 Explorer
I don't know if this will help or not because it is for a 1994 Bronco, but it should be similar. Can't yet find the Explorer info but when I do, I will post that.

http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/showthread.php?t=86620

Some good info and the link works...I will add this I disabled the ABS about 2 years ago pulled the 30 amp fuse...I didn't like the pulsing on hard stops...naturally the ABS light came on and went off when the fuse was put back in 2 years ago...Now 2 years latter the light wont go off with the fuse in and the fuse is good???


So why bother now, I had a transmission rebuild and I'm having trouble with TTC lock-up. The trany is slow to release lock-up and will not release lock-up when you hit the brakes. What I read the TTC gets it's info when to lock and unlock form the computer.
I read it's supposed to unlock when you touch the brakes. So my thought is the computer is not getting information from the ABS to send to the TTC...Just a theory???


Anybody now for sure...
Thanks for the help
Bruce

Please re-upload the pictures if possible
If I don't get lazy tomorrow and it's not raining like crazy, I'll perform this test on my 1994 and make a video.

Since bruce119 covered 4WABS, I figured I'd make a video for RABS on the 1991 and 1992 model years.

I have a 94 Limited edition Explorer and the ABS light is always on. It did not flash at all. Is my ABS module faulty? Is it easy to replace? Or am I doing something wrong?
