Default Baffled

Does anyone know the location of the ABS fuse for a 2005 Ford Ranger Edge 4x4? I installed a new master cylinder and rebuilt all the brakes. They worked for about 2 months and the brakes went out again. My mechanic said to take the ABS fuse out. I thought there would be a diagram or explanation in the Hanes but there's no:confused

Is he talking about the ABS line that runs into the front spindle?

That makes no sense. Please elaborate on "the brakes went out again".

Question Re: Baffled

Had full pedal and after a short time i was driving along and the pedal slammed to the floor with nothing there. The fuse for the ABS i am talking about is located in the fuse box on the drivers side in the engine compartment. I need to know which one it is

This has nothing to do with the ABS, don't waste your time. Your mechanic is a moron, find another one if that is what he's telling you. The pedal going to the floor means you either have low/no brake fluid or the master cyclinder is fucked up. Check the fluid reservoir and report back what you find. Also report back what you replaced earlier.
