Does any one , or rather can any one tell me how to hook up my fog lights
so they only work when the headlights are on?
A wireing diagram would be nice also.

I've been out of town for a week, so sorry if this discussion is old.
Unless over-the-rail bedliners have gotten better in recent years, I would
get rid of it. They usually scratch the hell out of the paint on the rails
they are supposed to be protecting. It probably wouldn't work with the
tonneau anyway, as the over-the-rail part is rarely perfectly flush with the
body and tonneau rails need to be clamped down good. It would make for a
pretty sloppy installation, in my opinion.

Just something to think about.

well,
The link is up...
Preliminary for now, but has the board photo and all the chip markings
layed out.
Let me know what you think, and as always, any and all info appreciated!
This is the EEC-V out of my 97 Explorer 4.0L OHV.

Subject: FTE Small - Electrical problems...

When the upper radiator hose blew and my engine overheated last week, some
electrical problems have suddenly cropped up with my '89 Bronco II. A few
minutes after I drove it out of the shop after the repair, I noticed the
voltmeter was indicating 18 volts or more. It would hold there for a few
minutes then would go back to normal (about 14 volts). Also, I noticed the
battery light would come on during the time the voltmeter indicated 18 volts.
It did this a few times before I turned the engine off for about 30-45
minutes. When I started it back up, everything seemed back to normal. The
incident has not occurred again.

Now, upon engine start and after the engine has cooled overnight or several
hours, the voltmeter would indicate 10-11 volts (discharging) and the battery
light would come on again. After about 10-15 mins of driving, the voltmeter
would start fluctuating wildly between 9-14 volts, then go back to normal (14
volts), and the battery light would go off.

I had the alternator and battery checked and both seem to be working fine.
I'm stumped! Could there be something else I may have missed? Could the
anitfreeze (which was all over the engine after the radiator hose blew) and
subsequent washing down of the engine compartment have affected something
electrical?

Thanks!

Joe,
Souinds like the AntiFreeze may have caused some problems with the
alternator... Unless they test it when it's acting up (fresh start after
overnight sitting etc) it may always test good... Problem is, it's going to
die dead soon from the antifreeze.
