I would suggest not
the upper section is bolted by 4 bolts to the dash frame and there is a clamp on a spline section for the shaft that goes through the fire wall
removing the wire harness connections , undoing the clamp and the 4 mounting bolts and the wheel section should pull of the splined section
remember to remove the ignition key barrel and switch to put on the replacement unit or you will have immobilizer reprogramming problems

If there is a problem with the 3-4 solenoid then a check engine light would be on or the OD light would be flashing. Read the faultcodes and see what is there.

Do you have access to an ohmmeter? If so, can you read resistance to ground on the input wire of your DISCONNECTED temp. gauge?

There are a few fuses for the trailer tow adapter.

1st, is theodd location on the 97-98, engine mini fuse panel has a 20 A fuse forthe stop / turn lamps. Have seen it covered in tape from the factory onsome 97-98 MY trucks.
This is on page 142 in the owners 1997 manual, all the revisions for the 1998 owners manual I have seen do not include this fuse box for some reason.

Download a PDF version from Ford, for the 1997 MY at :


This is a picture of the Power Distribution Box, additional relay box and engine mini fuse panel with the covers off. The 20A in the upper right panel with the red base, is the trailer stop/turn fuse.

The others :
1. Power Distribution Panel / engine compartment fuse panel
Fuse #1 - Trailer tow back-up and tail lamps
Fuse #16 - Trailer tow battery charge and stop/turn lamps
Fuse #28 - Trailer tow electronic brake

2. Instrument Panel Fuses ( cab fuse panel by hood release )
#23 - trailer tow battery charge relay

What makes you think fuel pump fuse is bad or the reset switch ? ( inertia fuel cut off switch ) Did you test for B+ volt or are you guessing ? Buy yourself DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an test the fuel pump electrical circuit ! Besides fuel there is also an ignition system , is there spark ? There are some good videos on youtube on trouble shooting these systems , also on how to read a wiring diagram ! An you can view wiring diagrams for free at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html also check out video on basic electrical systems testing ! Remember, test don't guess !!!!!

Norman, The ABS light is telling you there is a fault in the Anti Lock Braking system, could be faulty wire/plug,sensor, leaking/stuck wheel cylinder/caliper, etc. The computer in your vehicle will have to be scanned to find the fault, diagnosed and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

There is a cheap kit which is available (and often used on everything from motorcycles to lawnmowers) which will let you shorten the shift linkage cable. Basically the cable is cut to the appropriate length and then a new tip is added to the now bare end to allow it to interface it's bracket.

Many possible reasons for this, if it only happens when you brake it limits the problem a little. If this is the case your front brake discs are probably warped, either replace them or have the ones fitted skimmed. I understand that the cost is similar so better to replace with new discs
