Straight from the Ford Workshop Manual, Section 206-09, Pinpoint Test 'Q' for DTC B1676 Voltage Out Of Range. This pinpoint test instructs you to check the voltage reading across pin 16 (tan w/red tracer) and pin 8 (light green w/yellow tracer) of the main ABS connector (with the connector disconnected from the module and the engine running). It then asks if voltage is greater than 16.6 volts or less than 9.2 volts. If YES, the next step is to CHECK CHARGING SYSTEM. If it does fall between the above readings, it instructs you to replace the ABS module. If I were to guess, I would say it has to be less than the latter of the two voltages specified, by what you are describing.
