Subject: FTE Small - REAR ANTILOCK Light

Hello,
I know there have been several discussions over the past few years on this
list regarding the REAR ANTILOCK light in the BRONCO II. My REAR ANTILOCK
light has been lit for apx. three years. The computer registers a code of
'0' which indicates a false error message. My question is : Is the module
that is located in the compartment behind the drivers seat easily replaced?
Can I just replace the module or are there additional steps that need to be
taken to reset anything electronically?
Any advise is much appreciated!

New list member here......considering the purchase of an Aerostar and
leaning towards the all wheel drive model. Are there things about the
Aerostar that you especially like......how about any negatives? Any
problem areas to look for in the Aerostar, especially all wheel drive?
Problems of note with then engine......transmission.....all wheel drive
system? I prefer the 5 speed transmission and understand this would require
the 1990-94 Aerostar all wheel drives......is that correct?

I know........lots of questions! That's why I came to the Ford
experts:-)...........thanks!

Hi,
I think the Aerostar is a good choice if you want to haul around family =
and
stuff. I have the 1993 extended version with the 3.0L engine and
rear-wheel-drive. I've had it now for two years and there were some =
things I
liked and others I did not like:

Pro: nice touring vehicle for long trips, great driver's position (high =
and
comfortable), lots of passenger and cargo room
Con: engine very cramped->hard to work on it, 3liter engine puts little
power on the wheels, 4 liter engine is a guzzler, transmission is not =
great
(Chrysler has worse), some people don't like the design

Me and my family, we are very satisfied with the Aerostar. I bought the
extended version, it hauls up to 7 passengers plus lots of baggage =
nicely.
The captain's chairs are great, I never had a better seat in any other =
car.=20
As for 4-wheel-drive: a fellow I know has the 4-liter Aerostar with =
AWD. He
says the engine is great since the car has sufficient power, but, fuel
consumption is very high and he had his 4-wheel-drive disconnected =
since
many times, it's been going on and off all the time making him very =
nervous.

Generally, for me, the Aerostar was the best buy, the other choices =
were the
Chevy Astro and the Chrysler minivans.

I just ran out to my '96 Ranger to look for the switch, Matt. You're right,
its nowhere to be seen. Obviously there is one though because the truck knows
when the door is closed. It has to be all the way closed though. Only closing
it to the first latch will not turn the dome light off. I've never had any
problems with mine, but this subject has come up on this list before. Maybe
this time I'll keep the infor if someone answers again. Maybe its on the
latch mechanism inside the door?

It is part of the latch mechanism.

Subject: FTE Small - Brake Drums

How do you get the drumscover off of the brake shoes? I have a 1988 BII,
and I try to remove the drum to get a look at the shoes, and this is how
it goes. I jack up the rear end, put stands on the frame, I take off the
wheel, then start pulling on the drum, but nothing happens. Is there
some kind of trick to getting it off?

I would like to remove the drums to replace the rear shoes, but I can't
seem to get at them. Any suggestions? Is there some kind of tool that I
need to get this done?

Thanks,

Adam

You did release the emergency brake, right???
May have to get in thru the adjustor slot in the backing plate and back off
the adjustment to let the shoes come in away from the drum. Drums get a
little worn then the shoes ride in the groove and have to be backed off to
get the drum off.
