on my 2001 the ABS light came on, I had some brake fluid leaking around the resovoir, figured it was low on fluid. That day at lunch time, I fired up the truck to go fetch some viddles and smelled wired burning. As I stopped in the parking lot to make a turn, I saw light smoke emitting from under the hood.
With my cat like reflexes and a breath much like of Superman, I opened the hood, jumped up on the drivers side front tire and blew out a fire with flames about a foot high.
The resovoir mounted brake sensor had badly frayed wires that shorted out and caught friggin' fire.....
BTW- my speedo had stopped working as well. I cut the wires to the sensor and taped them up until I could get a new one wired in, speedo has been working ever since......but the my friggin' up pipe started leaking, no boost, high egts. my truck iz possessed... needs an exorcisiom
