DTC C2806 is set when a short exists between any circuit and the output line.
Refer to the following Service Procedure to correct the condition.
|NOTE:||PLEASE PERFORM EVERY STEP TO AVOID REPEAT REPAIRS:|
- All circuits in 7-pin connector bundle, right/left turn signal, back up lamp, brake lamp, and tail lamp should be activated in turn, while checking for voltage on output line.
- Check aftermarket wiring, especially on 5th wheel hitches. All wiring must be soldered and shrink wrapped. Use of Scotch locks or other connectors is not recommended.
- Check for water intrusion in connector C4099 and round 7-pin connector.
- If water intrusion is found – Replacement is necessary for both connector C4099 with a new pigtail and the round 7-pin connector. Add MotorcraftÂ® Silicone Brake Caliper Grease and Dielectric Compound to connector pins.
- If no water intrusion exists, follow Workshop Manual, Section 206-10 pinpoint test.
