PostSubject: Leaky Switches?   Fri Oct 22, 2010 7:16 am

A news article stated the following -

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration urged owners of the 14 million vehicles recalled between 1999 and 2009 for leaky cruise-control switches to take their unrepaired vehicles in to dealers. The switches on those vehicles may leak into the antilock brake system, Ford has said.

I guess I better always check the switches on my radios for leaks? Rolling Eyes

You absolutely should! If your AM leaks into your SW, you could get AW and SM! I am sure that you would not want that to happen! affraid

It's a pressure switch, located on the brake master cylinder. The diaphragm can fail and leak brake fluid into the switch, which drips down the wires, into the ABS controller. THAT'S where the FIRES start...
