Don't know when but, somewhere in the early 90's, the truck
went to a remote mount over the rear of the left inner
fender. May be able to get setup for truck to relocate.
You will probably be in good shape to replace the module
with a current version and make sure you use the heat sink
grease that comes with it. The biggest heat problem is the
grease drying out over time and becoming less effective
allowing the module to overheat and fail. You can get heat
sink grease or thermal paste in a tube from Radio Shack.
Many computer shops have it as it is thye same stuff used to
attach cooling fans to the CPU of your computer and other
electronic applications. BTW, it ain't cheap!!! It just
doesn't take much of it to do the job properly applied.
I have some spade connectors that should fit the contacts with help
from a file and connect to the old one as shown above.
there are remote kits out there marketed for trucks that work the same
but look neater..
