sounds like a good plan. Damn'd grounds can cause a lotta issues...and intermitent problems caused by bad conections are an even bigger pain it the arse.. Once ya start looking at your wireing, take your time, gently pull on some conections, see if anything looks bad. IF you cant solder and heat shrink the new conections, you can use crimp conectors that are coated with heat shrink tubing...They work well, we use them at Deere if/when we cant solder conections.

The ground wire that is bad is on the TPS pigtail. Have a new one on order,should be in town in a few days. looking fwd to putting it on! you guys are great thanks so much. I will let ya know how it comes out all so may antilockbreak light come on as well as the emerg.light and stays on most of the time, every now and then they go off at the same time while it running, they go on and off as if they are wired together. If I unplug the wire on the emerg break peadel the panel light stays on as well as the antilock light. If I trun the engine and key on emerg light gose on and off as it should as I set the break and release it thanks.

Thanks for checking in, and letting us know how it's going. You're making progress, for sure. I think you've got two idiot lights on that thing; one for the emergency (or parking) brake, and a second for the anti-lock brakes (ABS). Probably can get that sorted out, too. Do keep us posted, and good luck.

Awright! Good deal. From your first post: "Numerous mechanics could never get vehicle to stay running." You did real good, man; CONGRATULATIONS! Now you can just enjoy your new truck. But be careful hanging around here, or else you'll get the bug to start modding it.
