Maybe if you call around to bigger repair shops you can find one that can read ford abs codes.
In my web search I found this link that discusses an ABS diagnostic connector for a '94 Ranger with RABS:
Ford Ranger RABS Light And DTCs
I've run into this several places. In part the link says the following:
"Next, locate the black Rear Anti-lock Brake System II (RABS II) diagnostic connector. The diagnostic connector has two mating halves, one of which has a black/orange wire connected to it. Disconnect the two halves.
Attach one end of a jumper wire to the black with orange stripe wire side of the diagnostic connector. CAUTION: Care must be taken to connect only the black/orange stripe wire to ground. Connecting the mating connector wire to ground will result in a blown fuse.
Momentarily ground the opposite end of the jumper wire by connecting it to a good chassis ground for one to two seconds.
Grounding this wire should start the RABS lamp flashing.
The code consists of a number of short flashes and ends with a long flash"
Since I've replaced each of the functional components in the system and still have an ABS light, I'd really like to see if there "is" a way to read diagnostic codes to guide what I do next. Income problems being what they are these days I don't have the $ to pay someone to fix this. Any guidance appreciated.
