Help: NF Brake lights/Turn Signals/AC Fan-Comp

Well,

This is a first.

Jumped in the truck yesterday to find that my brake lights, turn signals, and both AC fan and compressor are non-functioning. Also, the truck begins idling at 2k rpms and gradually climbs the longer you allow it to idle. Perfect!

The turn signals still work through the use of the Hazard light.

Visually checked and tested each fuse- they're all in good shape. No visual corrosion on the fuse box. Disconnected the battery and ECU, and reconnected to find no change in condition. What else should I look for? I've searched the archives, but haven't found anything that I think applies.

Thanks!

Ross

Check the grounds. Front and rear lights are both acting up?

Ok, there's a thin, and wide braided ground wire on the driver's side of the engine compartment that is dangling ungrounded. I had "the shop" install Hella 4000's over the weekend, and my guess is- he removed it for the install, and forgot to re-install it.

1. Do you expect this would cause the high idle revs, front/rear signal failure, brake lights, and fuel gauge failure?

2. If so, what residual damage (if any) might have been caused as a result of the ungrounded wire?

Thanks much!!

Ross

1. Yes

2. No harm likely.
