Question about 1990 Ford Econoline
I have a 1990 ford econo line van. pretty clean too but i didn't know for a long time the rear vents had a control for on an off under the dash. it takes it a while but it gets warm,and after riding a bit it will have you comfortable. but the front doesnt blow at all. i wanted to know what to do about these problems and find out where is the anti lock brake pump to disconnect it cause my brake light comes on an off on my dash an i know there is nothing wrong with my brakes.
I at one time had an econoline and the fan not blowing was the blower motor on the passenger side firewall in the engine compartment (a couple of bolts and a plug). May be a secondary fan for the rear of the vehicle this is why the rear is getting air flow.
Brakes--there is a sensor on the master cylinder or on the distribution block. If you unplug that sensor the light should go out--if it does you have a bad sensor.
Hope this helps--

Check the fluid level, top it off if needed, look for a fill to line on the side of the reservoir. Check rear brake shoes/pads, are they too worn? Replace with new ones. Bleed all 4 wheels, starting with the farthest one, then go to next farthest, and so on. Look for leaks inside the rear wheels. Adjust rear brakes (if shoes not pads).

"HOW TO": I professionally prefer the Serpentine Tensioner Tool.
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s).
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (located on the Tensioner Pulley rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.
Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley and Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.
