Hard Pedal - thinking the wiring at the ABS fuse/relay center is WRONG!


Recommended Posts

 

Background:
  • obtained a 1990 Chrysler TC Maserati with a 3.0L V6 engine for cheap because the ABS pump (is my guess anyways) melted the wiring at ABS fuse/relay center (mounted to RF fender in engine compartment)
  • vehicle came with an attempt to repair the wiring at the ABS fuse/relay center (see attached pic titled "ABS center relay mess_resized_30_180turn")
 
 
The wiring repair that was done:
  • I've attached a picture (see picture titled "ABS center relay_top view_v1_resized_30_180turn") of the top view of the ABS fuse/relay center which notes how the wiring repair was done
  • further, I've noted how the repair of the wiring was done and how the relays are now wired. The below information corresponds with the picture titled "ABS center relay_top view_v1_resized_30_180turn":
  • 1) MOTOR RELAY
  • A) Cavity A
  • - color of wire - red
  • - terminal position on relay - 87
  • B) Cavity B
  • - color of wire - red
  • - terminal position on relay - 86
  • C) Cavity C
  • - color of wire - red/white
  • - terminal position on relay - 30
  • D) Cavity D
  • - color of wire - brown/red (there are 2 brown red wires coming out of this cavity)
  • - terminal position on rely - 85
  •  
  • 2) AUX RELAY
  • A) Cavity A
  • - color of wire - red/white
  • - terminal position on relay - 87
  • B) Cavity B
  • - color of wire - red
  • - terminal position on relay - 86
  • C) Cavity C
  • - color of wire - red/white
  • - terminal position on relay - 30
  • D) Cavity D
  • - color of wire - red/brown
  • - terminal position on relay - 85
  •  
  • 3) MAIN RELAY
  • A) Cavity A
  • - color of wire - red
  • - terminal position on relay - 87
  • C) Cavity B
  • - color of wire - red
  • - terminal position on relay - 86
  • C) Cavity C
  • - color of wire - red/white
  • - terminal position on relay - 30
  • D) Cavity D
  • - color of wire - brown
  • - terminal position on relay - 85
  • E) Cavity E
  • - color of wire - brown
  • - terminal position on relay - 87a
 
Hoping someone can help me 1 of 2 ways:
  1. LESS EFFORT - can some provide me with a clear picture of the underside of the ABS fuse/relay center so that I can see what wires go where ......OR......
  2. MORE EFFORT- confirm that the wiring repair is correct
Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.

Smeter, Turbo Kane’s suggestion is certainly one I would jump on, that RePaIr was certainly OVER-KILL as far as an attempt to repair was concerned. You almost certainly need to replace the Accumulator as well, a bad one would cause the pump to overwork and burn out the circuit.
