Ok so I've had some time to figure out how to get the Multifunction switch modded for the Ranger. I took all the pins out of the weird shaped connector on my ranger and replaced the connector with the one for the Lincoln. All the pins are the same but 2. They need to be repositioned and the reason you need the other connector is because of the extra slot it has for one of those wires to be repinned.
Now here comes the fun part (the square connector) according to my wiring manual for my 2000. The resistances generated by the wiper **** to signal how fast the wipers should go are the exact same as the lincolns.
So I hooked up the repinned connector and square one unmodded. Hazzards, Turn signals, brake lights, high beams, low beams, flash to pass worked. The wiper sprayer worked BUT the wipers weren't right. At each selection the wipers didn't work until on high and after put on high they wouldn't reset until the negative battery cable is pulled.
I physically checked the resistances on MY switch and they are showing big time differences than my manual. Looking at other year manuals the resistances I'm showing are the same as a 1999 and 2001 and different than the Lincoln. Doing a part cross showed that a 2000 switch is the same from 1999-2003 so I'm really confused. I had an 1998 explorer switch and I plugged it in and it did the same thing with the wipers.
I could understand if my ranger was made in late 2000 since ford does half years. But my truck was manufactured in Jan 00.
