I was raised on a farm with old farm trucks that didn't have ABS... so yeah, I agree, it's just another way they 'protect us from ourselves'... With as heavy as this van is, I don't think the rear brakes are doing near as much as they could, and an adjustable proportioning valve in place of the ABS controler seems to make sence to me.
Pulling the fuse will, I've been told, affect other things like tranny shifts, speedo, and other things... not a good way to test this issue.
I would like to know a good way to trouble shoot the ABS system to determine if the driver is bad, if there's a sender that is the issue, what.... you get the point.
I have also posted this in the 7.3 general forum, if interested check it out there as well. I will be checking/ posting on both threads. I just left a much longer post there in reply to some others....
