In this SMA Quick tip video we do a quick repair on a 2013 Ford Fusion that came into the shop with over 17 codes including problems in the parking aid system, ABS, traction control and power steering. I hope to show the value in checking TSB's and SSM info AFTER you have gathered preliminary data from the car you are working on. -Enjoy!

SSM 44504:
2013-2014 Fusion/MKZ - ABS Warning Lamp - DTCs C0031, C0034, C0037, And/Or C003A
Some 2013-2014 Fusion and MKZ vehicles built before 3/4/2014 may exhibit an ABSlamp with one or more DTCs C0031, C0034, C0037, or C003A. DTC B00A0 and other network DTCs related to ABS may also be present in other modules. In addition, the affected wheel speed sensor (WSS) PID value may indicate 255 KPH (158 MPH). Inspect the circuits in the vehicle harness according to the WSS DTC present. Pullback approximately 150mm (6") of the WSS circuit protective conduit and check for corrosion and/or cuts in the wiring insulation approximately 25-75mm (1" to 3") from the connector. Repair the circuits using pigtail kit 3U2Z-14S411-BXAB and using the Solder Splicing Method. Refer to the Wiring Diagram, Section 5-1 andto published service labor time standards for wire repair in Section 02 - Brakes, use causal part 12A581.

    My car is doing the same thing and all the lights come on and then it completely dies! Just shuts down! We replaced the battery and the alternator and it's still all lights on and randomly loses power steering and dies. Now I'm gonna have my husband check these wires and see.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Payton Evans says:

    Would this cause issues w a engine completely dying?

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Payton Evans says:

    I HAVE BEEB TRYIBG TO FIGURE THIS OUT FOR NEARLT 2 YEARS 🙏🏼🙏🏼

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nascar.Christo says:

    I put a new engine in my 2013 fusion when step on the gas it’s a little but no acceleration I’m getting the C0037 code but all light that’s on is my engine light can please help

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Ritchey says:

    Thanks for the video, I just fixed my lMKZ using your information. had the same issues as you described in the video. I found the hole in the wire and corrosion, the wire was good so I cleaned it and I applied die electrical grease and taped it real good. no issues so far.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gunner S says:

    I did this a couple years ago on my MKZ, honestly thought someone had pierced the wire with a tester.. learn something new every day

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Dixon says:

    Concise and clear. Well done!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ricky brown says:

    Great idea. Especially for a mechanic that just wants a little more input.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John E says:

    Well my friend i think you just saved me hundreds i will go check that right naaaoooooo !!!!!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BigCheeseburger says:

    I was working on a 13 taurus that was hit on front fixed everything and it still had TCS lights on. Changed the bearing and sensor. Still on then saw this checked the harness and more than 3 spots of it were coroded and just gone. Couldn't believe it

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott says:

    Great video. RF wire 2014 Fusion SE. Fixed it. I did have to invest in a better scanner that covered ABS but I think I still beat the price of taking it in.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Patrick McCoy says:

    Why isn't this a recall? Every Fusion has this problem.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars L.Davis2001 says:

    I enjoy watching your videos but I'm just trying to figure out why do you look like dude from Tremors and I know you hear this a lot but you look just like that dude like you could be his long-lost twin I'm just saying but I'm still one of your biggest fans but every time I see one of your video that's who you remind me of cuz you look identical to this man

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rogelio Barbosa says:

    Thanks very helpful 👍🏻🙏

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bpeck says:

    Just did the same job on the same year fusion even the same color!!!!! RF wire broken in the same place…..Thanks for saving me lots of time.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Horn says:

    I have a 2014 Ford Fusion Titanium and I want to thank you for publishing this one! My car was also lit up like a Christmas tree with stiff steering. ForScan guided me to the front left abs sensor and just as I was about to order new I ran across this helpful video. Next morning I decided to unravel my harness, and sure enough same broken purple wire on the harness. I proceeded to fix it with one of those solder butt splices and wrapped up with loom and electical tape. All codes a thing of the past! Thanks so much – very helpful! Mike

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wolf one says:

    Could that front harness throw a code for the left rear tone wheel ? Or would the rear harness cause that problem? I'm getting rear tone wheel code same issue and car.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marcos Martins says:

    Ótimo vídeo! Não entendi o que você falou mas entendi o que eu vi kkkkk.
    Erros no meu Ford KA 2015: C0031, U0415 e U0401.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 01elbowes says:

    As for this repair. My 2013 Fusion Hybrid has been doing this for a few months. I replaced the left front WSS this morning due to a C0031 code I guess I should have kept reading all the way down to where it said Circuit short to battery or open. After watching this post I found the exact same issue. I also found that the pin hole in the wire is located right behind the white plastic restraint clip. I suppose the tool that installs the clip poked the hole in the harness.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Dennis says:

    Thank you for the video! Had this exact issue on my 2016 F150 with the right rear wheel speed sensor.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Losinger says:

    OMG I just had this issue on my 2018! Took it to the dealer, as soon as i started describing it, he said yup i know exactly what it is. Left front ABS wire. He said he replaces at least three of these a week. they just need to do a recall if its happening to all of them. Luckily mine is still under warrantee.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GodfatherJAM says:

    My 2013 Fusion (manual trans) had the same exact issue.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Fisher says:

    I have a 2010 fusion sel 3.0 awd. Brakes feel like they lose pressure between drives. After some research it sounds like replacing the ABS pump may be fix but then my check engine light came on and i had codes B1676 and U3003 that both suggest an issue with ABS supplied voltage or something like that which suggest maybe a fuse or something?. Do you have any experience with these? Going crazy over here trying to self diagnosing. Maybe I should still change out pump then go from there. Cant afford a shop as these are many times a 1500 to 2000 dollar job. TIA

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Oien says:

    Dead on

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Censorship Sold Separately says:

    My dad's 06 F150 had the same thing happen to the rear speed sensor. Very interesting issue for sure

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Janne Pohjala says:

    *****. Magnificient!

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray P. says:

    My guess is that a common problem like that was probably related to an issue on the assembly line or in the tooling that assembles the harness.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrGordozzzz says:

    So simple when you're brilliant!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron B says:
