Also known as dilectric grease. It is used for electrical connectors and brake work and can be purchased at Ford dealers or most auto parts stores.

Thanks, I will make a trip to the salvage yard in hopes of finding a clean one, from your last post can I assume I can pull one out of a ranger from years 2000-2003? Do I need to pull one from a manual trans truck or will all work?

I think the connector and wiring is the same from 2001 to 2003. The 2000 connector shell looks similar to the 01~03 but there are are some color code differences in the wiring.

Manual and auto are probably the same for any given year because the transmission wiring goes over the top of the trans from the engine harness and doesn't pass through the connector you are having trouble with.

The transfer case wiring does go through that underseat connector, though, so there maybe additional wiring on one or both sides of the connector in a 4x4 truck.

Installed a used harness off a 2003 yesterday, had to hard wire a few of the wires as they did not match but everything works including the speedo. Thanks again for your help. Cost me $21.00 and about 8 hours of work but I'm sure I save a bundle.

Originally, the rear axle ABS sensor wires were part of the wire harness that goes forward along the driver side frame rail from the rear of the truck to a connector under the cab.
