Re: 1997 E350 7.3 90K miles no start and no power
I got the Bus home it made the 4 hour trip.
I ran into a few problems that I may need some more help to resolve. I will try and describe them in the order of most important to the least important.
The brakes work but a several times during the 4 hour drive the pedal would get soft during braking. The brake pedal would get soft and get close to the floor. It seemed to only happen when the engine was turning lower RPMs. The fluid level is high and it doesnít seem like an issue with the pads. Does it sound like the brake booster pump is the problem?
None of the climate control features are working. I am hoping this is an easy fix like a fuse. Can anyone tell me which fuses control AC/Heat and the fan blower? Should the Ford factory controls work to control the Heat and AC and the Corbeil Bus controls at the same time?
It seems like someone removed a radio. I have three connections that seem like they would connect to the back of a radio. The radio is not an issue at the moment, but if it only requires two connections then I need to track down the where the third disconnected wire bundle goes.
Bus Body Lights
It seems like someone disabled the bus body lights. The stop sign, the front arm that swings out and none of the bus body lights work.
I see a cut telephone style wire under the dash. I have three yellow wires coming down the driverís side pillar that donít go anywhere.
In the panel above the driver head that contents the wiring for the body some of the connections are unplugged.
The body is a Corbeil body. It would be great if someone could post a few pictures of the circuit board in the bus wiring compartment. Is it odd that nothing seems to be clearly labeled beyond the color of the wire?
Overall the bus is in great condition. It just hit 90,000 miles on the drive home. The transmission and engine worked perfectly. The body is clean and dent free.
Thanks for any help that is provided
