My 02 4x4 4Dr Sporty..Below the fuel filter mounted on the frame there is some type of switch/sensor. It is mounted in a bracket, and has a harness connected to it. I can't figure out what it would be for. Not sure where to look to find out what it is. Any ideas? No ABS on this rig. Cheers.

sounds like it may be your chassis acceleration sensor.
kgis gives a description and purpose.

hope this helps Chief

Chief, if I remember correctly, this sensor is used for two things:
1. Air bag deployment during a crash :eek:
2. Safety shut down if your flux capacitor goes bad :whistling:


Is this correct?
