I now have removed the air cleaner assembly and checked the switch beneath the master cylinder and found it to be dry. I did notice the jumper cable with fusible-link Ford had installed at the December 2009 recall. You had asked about the codes that the Ford mechanics had found and they wrote this: "73818 ABS/TC light verified light was on. Pulled codes C1185, C1194, C1198, C1210, 1214, 1242, 1246, 1250, 1254,1404,1410. Looked in WSM followed pinpoint test I, Replace anti-lock brake control module. Advised customer, customer did not want repair. Cleared codes." Regarding the rear bumper back-up sensors, the Ford mechanic stated: "73818 Parking aid verified parking aid was inoperable. Ran self test on parking aid code C1909. Followed pinpoint test. Replace inner right parking aid sensor. Advised customer. Customer didn't want to replace. Cleared codes." They quoted me a price of $750.00 plus labor to replace the ABS module and $350.00 to replace the parking aid sensor. Are these costs realistic or would I be better off trying mechanics at a private repair facility?
