Wire Harness

Recommended Posts

So... I have 2 1995 Contour SE's. They are both in excellent shape, both with about 130k miles. Love these cars, and would like to keep them for as long as they hold up. Both of them have Traction Control and ABS. With both cars, the traction control and ABS lights are on (solid). My mechanic believes this is caused by the part of the wire harness that goes down to the ABS sensor, then on to the speed sensor. I have replaced the main harness's with units that came from SVTTOUR, and have checked with him about these harnesses. He has politely replied that he does not have any in his stockpile of parts and no longer rebuilds them, citing unavailable parts. Does anyone else happen to have these admittedly rare parts or have a line the connectors (assume the actual wires are not all that difficult to get). I would think I have the skills to rebuild these if I'm able to get the parts. Alternatively, does anyone have any experience to say that the connectors are not always that bad, and it is more a questing of degraded wires. Any thoughts/comments appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Most of the connectors don't fail, but the wires definitely fall apart (insulation wise). I would ohm check from the ABS unit to the sensor in question to see if 1. You have a short, or 2. you have an open. If it's a bad wire, you should be able to chase it down.

Hello Germancarguy:

 

Tried two years ago to do engine swap involving low-mileage 98 SVT V-6 engine into second SVT with  more-solid rockers but the first mechanic was only partially successful with the transplant.  Long story marginally shorter, my current mechanic says I need an engine wiring harness which I am learning is rarer than rocking horse_______.  Yours and others' thoughts on how I might get this part/otherwise address this issue would be much appreciated.

 

Stay calm, be brave, watch for the signs,

Boesch
