    I was reading your post for your 08 escape ABS problem. I have the same issue and you mention the scanner you purchased helped diagnose the problem. Does this scanner connect to the OBD2 port and read the codes? AMazon has it for $189 and the dealer is $100 to scan it. I'm trying to see if it's worth the money.
    Thanks. Matt

    Still looking into this Machinist Man - do you recall the 'cons' to doing the install yourself? I'm reasonably mechanical, but is this something you would farm out? By the way, enjoy the new ride.

    Thanks for getting back to me! I try hard to keep a steady foot, but it's hard not to get swept up in the average speed of traffic that can get into speeds where efficiency is lost. Setting the cruise control helps to keep that at bay. I might just make this one of my summertime projects!! Thanks again!! Kevin

    Did you ever install the cruise control? I was thinking about doing the same but wondered what your experience was. Thanks, Rackster
