Very helpful; Thank You!
The part number on my donor Instrument console says it is for 99-01 light truck E250/350/excursion so probably the same as yours. Both were diesels and my CTO goes to the same #12 pin on the 16 pin connector. I'm guessing it's just a different signal on the 97, OBS 7.3?
Looking for a way to adapt?
Did you find a fix for your ABS light? I find it funny that there is no change to the circuitry running the Dark Green wire to a bulb (I even moved the bulb and socket from the E series cluster) and it still cues an ABS warning.
A side note, I took the white plastic and electronics from the F/Ex cluster and used the E/van black plastic and clear bezel. I had to mod some of the whit plastic to mate them, but it makes for a much better fit into the dash.
Thanks for the reply
