Hydromax Brake Booster Motor Runs Continuously
I washed my radiator fins yesterday afternoon with a hose to clean bugs, etc. and now the motor for the Hydromax Brake Booster runs continuously, with the engine off and the ignition key off. I assume something got wet and shorted out or something of that nature. I did not notice it until I went out this morning to put the garbage out and I heard something running.
I called the service manager at a ford truck dealer and he told me where the electric plug is behind the master cylinder and I unplugged it, so it it not running now. (plug is very difficult to see and to get your hand in there to unplug - it is a white plastic plug).
I let it sit all morning to dry out (the radiator fins are still wet) and then plugged back up, and it still runs continuously, so I unplugged it again. With it unplugged, if I turn the ignition key to "on" I hear the motor just for a second or two, then it shuts off. This seems strange to me, but there must be another connection to the pump motor under the dash or somewhere.
My Question: Is there a relay or a "reset" somewhere for this Hydromax system that I can reset, or does anyone understand what is happening?
