Sensor (sender) is located above auxiliary boost cylinder, located
behind the brake master cylinder and very close to the firewall. Has two
connectors attached....disconnect one.....done!!!
CAUTION !!!! I maintain, that with a "dead" bomb a loaded car like
yours at 70 mph and requiring a true emergency stop.... will not make it
!!! at least will travel considerably more distance !!!! ( some list
fellows will disagree !!)
Replace the "bomb" ASAP if it is truly dead
