I was cruising through Google images and found a full 'haynes type' online manual
Copy/paste this into your browser window and replace the obvious {see note* at bottom}:
arrc{dot}epnet{dot}com/autoapp/9133/9133.htm

It's a full manual... including good READABLE electrical diagrams. {note it is a Chiltons, read down the thread}

Coverage is for Fox and MN12's (83-97)

- if you dont see a left sidebar index, click 'show' upper left corner.

there's a few mistakes like they have interior trim door panels as 89-92, 93-97 .. but that's minor

Also found one for my Bravada but it's nowhere near as comprehensive

I'm using Firefox 3.6, also works in Opera 10.6

*Note: There is no apparently no home page for this. It seems to be hosted space for another domain. Perhaps a parts store site. .. actually may be libraries.

I did some research and the parent org for this site is in business of selling hosting for documents. If I were the data/site admin I would have a code routine sniffing for unauthorized referrals / linking. They can see where the link comes from.
Once you get to the manual, bookmark it. We are not reselling the info so it's not exactly pirated.


If you want to find manual for another car, go to google images, and in the search box type e.p.n.e.t {without the 'dots' ;) } along with name of model and a component or system as unique as possible to your car. Click on the image you think looks likely, and has that domain name, then click 'website for this image'
Once the page is displayed, click 'show' in the upper left corner and you'll have an index.

-I just tried again for my old Lumina and found the manual pretty good. Solved the cruise control inop problem, in fact. Center Brake light bulb!

Note there's a fair amount of confusing and wrongly labeled diagrams.. but there were in the '89 Mitchell's I had so I guess it's normal.
- It will be interesting to see if and when site admins notice back door access to these directories.

Anyone want to play and see if they can ftp the top and child directories?

Small note - it won't work in Chrome, does in IE. Haven't tried FireFox yet.

Works for me in FF.

Better than nothing, but no replacement for the Ford manuals.

This needs to be locked & stickied.
Umm... suggest you DONT lock it. Like a Haynes, there's too much errata in there. For instance someone ought to check their version of EVTM for 93 and see if the A/C clutch diode is shown backwards there, as well. Suggest only posting with added info, though.

Like I noted in the addition to OP, the late nineties Lumina version is great, the Blazer/S10/ Bravada SUX

I think it's a Chilton's, so be aware.

(One of the subfolders I'm getting as I suck it is a CHILTONIMAGES folder ... )

Actually it IS the Chilton's. Go to Amazon, look up chiltons and thunderbird, you'll see the 83-97. Check the ISBN, note you can lop off the last digit, and see the next four, right to left are the dir/ files for the manual.
SO.. if you want to see one for another car, do the same on Amazon then plug in those respective 4 numbers -BOTH Places in the URL, ignoring the last on the ISBN and voila! worked on Lumina.


Well, that's not surprising.

doesn't seem to be very in depth. I would like to find good wiring schematics.

I didnt look through all of them but what I found were way better than I'd seen in haynes and easier to read than I saw in my 89 Mitchell EVTM.

In the Amazon blurb they say it is for the generic shop and the knowledgable owner.

1989–97 Vehicles

Strut removal and installation procedures.....
:facepalm:
Well, it IS a Chilton's. Heh.. this thread has something for everyone. :D
