I do not have a photo of this application. There should not have been more than 1 way to run the cable. However some of the linkage has a cruise control cable and a throttle control cable. They did have plastic clips to fix the cable to these brackets. Maybe you switched the position of the 2 cables and that is why the throttle cable seems too long.

That is exactly what is happening. There is a switch on the brake pedal that often is hit by the drivers' foot. It can be just out of position or broken depending on how it is hit. You need to look under the drivers' dash and realign the switch.

Did you do any tune-up?wires? coils?

1997 Ford... | Answered on Jul 03, 2017

the problem you describe is that the wiring near the hand brake is acting as a ground wire for the starter system and is carrying excessive current

the ABS pump is the same as in a mazda of the same year but ford would not tell you that
take it to an auto electrician for a proper diagnosis
There are plenty of serviceable ABS unts at the wreckers /junk yard and if checked out by an accredited brake specialist shop will do the job

Sounds like you need an Ignition Switch replacement. Pretty common on this steering collumn. Good Luck!

ABS is a different systems & module, than the transmission

So not really-- but you may have an issue with the abs, if you
have fault codes in the system & some driveability sympthoms
that seem like there is a trans & other problems

I would doubt that it could "shut down" your transmission, but ABS sensors can affect the way the system controls the transmission.

Can you be more specific about your symptoms.
Have you had your diagnostic codes scanned?
There may be some other sensors/control modules that are failing.

Use a spring compressor and remove ball joint, lower arm carefully and remove bolts.

My guess is a faulty switch at door for turning off interior lights/door closed, which is giving chime that door is still open

Straight up from the hood release is the "low power" fuse box. A latch cover hides/protect the fuses.
There's also a "high power" fuse box behind the battery, also with a latch cover to protect it. These fuses are of a much higher rating/amperage than the "low power" fuses.
You might need to get an owners manual as it spells out what each fuse does in detail.

Under the hood you'll find a relay center. In that box, you'll find the A/C relay. If you're A/C isn't coming on, this could be the problem. To test it, swap it out with a relay next to it and see if it comes on. If it does, replace the relay. If it doesn't still, look in the fuse box to see if you in fact have a blown A/C fuse. The fuse box itself is located under the dash.
