All,

I just got this 1992 Bronco from a neighbor. It’s pretty clean. Less than 121K miles. As I’m going through it with my boys, I’m addressing safety and routine things that haven’t been maintained as well as one would like.

In going through the inspection and repair, I came across this loose connector. I’ve done visuals, reffered to Chelton and I hit my stops. It looks rough and potentially broken. Anyone know about this (See image) and can give me a lead? It’s coming off the engine (5.0 V8).

Thanks for any/all advice. -brad

My vote is power steering pressure switch. If you don’t have a place to plug it in on your power steering hose, the PO may have replaced the hose with one without the port.

The 5.0 trucks with the E4OD never used the power steering pressure switch.
It just "hung" there.
Mine ended up contacting the exhaust manifold and started to melt.

Yo Bradhayes75,
Welcome!
As advised on the PS Pressure Switch Connector. The Power Steering Pressure Switch signals the EEC Module when power steering pressure exceeds 350 psi ±50. The engine then increases idle speed to compensate for the additional load." by Ford

It looks a little like the SPOUT connector just routed to the wrong location. What color are the wires?
