Cruise control recall....recall?1995 bronco
Posted 06 September 2013 - 11:05 AM
stopped working. I checked under the hood, and the inline fuse in the new wiring harness that was performed in the recall has blown. After some research, I found that I should not replace it. I also noticed that there is brake fluid on the harness.
Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, did the dealer foot the bill on anything or are we on our own in fixing the problem?

I doubt that the dealer will be willing to foot the bill, but you can try. Sounds like the pressure switch went bad. I would take this one to the dealer just so you are covered on the repair. It could possibly cause a fire if not fixed properly, let them take the liability for the repair.
Parts replacement is not trouble shooting, replacement follows trouble shooting
Broncos are MPVs not SUVs
Engines run on fuel, or steam
Motors run on electricity, hydraulic fluid, vacuum, or air

yo, I agree w/Seabronco.
Recall; Fused Jumper Harness (14A411) pic; "List price on this is ~$11 (as of the date I posted the pic), but it will be installed at NO CHARGE (parts or labor) on vehicles covered by the recall. Even though the label is wrong about the fuse being internal, it should still NEVER be replaced. If it blows, it means the brake pressure switch is leaking, and (as the label states) should be replaced with the new switch & adapter harness kit, listing for ~$20 right now..."

Affected title branded & salvaged vehicles are eligible for this Field Service Action.
SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH (SCDS) REPLACEMENT
NOTE: The brake pedal must not be depressed during the removal and replacement of the SCDS.
1. Check the brake fluid level at the master cylinder and, if necessary, fill to maximum fluid level. NOTICE: DO NOT apply fluid to the electrical connector or damage to the connector may occur. NOTICE: The 1994 Capri Brake Repair Kit contains a brass sealing washer. Install the brass washer onto the SCDS before installing it on the vehicle.
2. Add a few drops of Motorcraft High Performance DOT 3 Motor Vehicle Brake Fluid, PM1-1 or PM-1-C (US), CPM-1-C (Canada), to the fluid port at the threaded end of the new SCDS. NOTICE: Do not allow any foreign material to enter the master cylinder port once the SCDS is removed. NOTE: Call the Special Service Support Center for assistance if brake fluid does not flow from the SCDS fitting when the SCDS is removed. NOTE: If the new SCDS is not installed immediately after the original switch is removed, the master cylinder brake fluid could drop below the minimum level and air could enter the brake system. If this should occur, air must be bled from the brake system at all 4 wheels. In this situation, the labor to bleed the brake system will not be covered under this program.
3. Remove the SCDS.
4. With the brake fluid reservoir cap removed, observe for brake fluid dripping/draining from the SCDS fitting. As soon as brake fluid begins to bleed from the fitting, install the new SCDS.
5. Tighten the new SCDS as follows:
^ 18 Nm (159 lb-in) - all vehicles except 1994 Capri.
^ 13 Nm (115 lb-in) - 1994 Capri.
6. Check the brake fluid level at the master cylinder, fill to maximum fluid level and install the brake fluid reservoir cap.
7. Disconnect the speed control servo and inspect the vehicle harness connector for heat damage.
^ If no heat damage is found at the speed control servo connector (even if there is presence of brake fluid in the connector), proceed to the next step.
^ If the speed control servo connector is heat damaged, call the Special Service Support Center for further instructions.
8. With the speed control servo disconnected, use shop air only to blow the SCDS harness electrical connector and the servo connector dry of any trace of brake fluid. Do not use any type of solvent to clean the connectors.
9. Cut approximately 3 mm (1/8 in) off the grease tube applicator tip.
10. Before installing the jumper harness, fill the vehicle harness end of the jumper (male pin connector end) with Motorcraft Electrical Grease II XG-15-A.
11. Install the adapter jumper harness by connecting it to both the SCDS and the vehicle harness. Using the provided tie strap, secure the jumper harness to a nearby component such as the speed control cable or another wire harness. NOTICE: Be sure to apply and adequate amount of grease to the vehicle harness connector only. DO NOT apply the grease directly to the connector of the servo module.
12. Apply a 5 mm (3/16 in) high bead of Motorcraft Electrical Grease II XG-15-A across the entire width and length of the servo vehicle harness connector.
Field Service Action 05S28 Speed Control System Modification
Supplement #7 (THIS BULLETIN HAS BEEN REVISED SEVERAL TIMES, SO THE INFORMATION BELOW IS NOT CURRENT.)
Check the Ford website to see if your VIN is affected.
Applies to certain vehicles equipped with speed control:
1994-2002 F-150/250 (Under 8500 GVW)
1997- 2002 Expedition
This program involves performing an inspection procedure to determine which repairs to the speed control system must be performed; either installation of a fused jumper harness or replacement of the speed control deactivation switch. A flow chart has been developed to direct you to the proper service actions.
NOTE: Disconnecting the battery is no longer required when performing these repairs.
INSPECTION - ALL AFFECTED VEHICLES
1. Disconnect the speed control deactivation switch located on the brake master cylinder and inspect the harness connector for the presence of brake fluid. See Figure 1.
a. If no brake fluid is present, install the fused jumper harness (Labor Operation D).
b. If brake fluid is present, disconnect the speed control servo and inspect the vehicle harness connector for heat damage. See Figure 2.
c. If no heat damage is found at the speed control servo connector (even if there is presence of brake fluid in the connector), proceed to Labor Operation E.
d. If the speed control servo connector is heat damaged, call the Special Service Support Center for further instructions.
LABOR OPERATION D - APPLIES TO VEHICLES WITH NON-LEAKING SWITCHES
1.a. Connect the fused jumper harness (14A411) to the speed control deactivation switch and the vehicle harness.
b. Position the harness alongside the existing harness, located below the master cylinder, so that the fuse holder is higher than the rest of the jumper harness. This will cause any water that enters the engine compartment and gets on the jumper harness to run downhill away from the fuse holder.
c. Secure the jumper to the existing harness with tie straps, making sure the fuse holder is positioned vertically with the cap facing upwards. Wrap the tie straps underneath, then over the top of the existing harness and verify proper fuse holder orientation.
2. Release the vehicle.
LABOR OPERATION E - APPLIES TO VEHICLES WITH LEAKING SWITCHES
1. Remove the speed control deactivation switch from the brake master cylinder. CAUTION: Do not allow any foreign material to enter the master cylinder port once the deactivation switch is removed.
2. Add a few drops of MotorCraft High Performance DOT 3 Brake Fluid, PM-1, to the fluid port at the threaded end of the new deactivation switch. CAUTION: DO NOT apply fluid to the electrical connector.
3. Install the new speed control deactivation switch into the master cylinder and tighten to 18 Nm (13 lb-ft).
4. With the speed control servo disconnected, use shop air only to blow the speed control deactivation switch harness electrical connector and the servo connector dry of any trace of brake fluid. DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF SOLVENT TO CLEAN THE CONNECTORS.
5. Apply Ford Electrical Grease F8AZ-19G208-AA into each cavity of the vehicle harness connector only. It is not necessary to apply grease to the servo side of the connector.
6. Reconnect the servo connector.
7. Install the adapter jumper harness by connecting it to both the deactivation switch and the vehicle harness. Using the provided tie strap, secure the jumper harness to a nearby component such as the speed control cable or another wire harness.
8. Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder and adjust if necessary.
9. Release the vehicle.

See my partially recovered Bronco web site. Will need to clean up dead links and add many more some day. Thanks to Mr, Schwim!
THANKS to ALL WHO SERVE!
