Starter Relay Where is the starter relay located on a 1995 ford contour and how would I go about getting to it to replace it?

Answers :

Follow the positive battery cable to the starter relay. It is mounted on the driver's side fender. Disconnect the battery first to be safe, then simply unbolt the cables from the defective unit, put them onto the new unit, then remove the old unit from the fender, and install the new unit and reattach the battery. Here is a pic of what your relay switch looks like:

I have a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 4cyl. I am having a problem with my car starting. Sometimes it will crank over OK, but other times I will just hear a click, as if it is not getting good contact. I have replaced the starter and I have checked the battery and terminals. I recently purchased a starter relay switch but I am having trouble finding the location of the starter relay switch to replace it. Could you give me any help finding the location of this switch or any other help solving this problem

1986 Ford f350 Diesel. Been sitting for at least a year without starting, replaced the starter and now all I get is a click when trying to start it. There are two relays on the right side fender. There are two 12v batteries connected in paralell. Located the smaller wire coming off the relay to the starter and tested good voltage to that wire at the relay. I'm not that familiar with old Fords, can you give me any suggestions? Thanks, Leonard

My 2003 Galant isn't getting fuel to the engine. I replaced the pump yet I'm still getting no fuel. The fuel gauge is still reading a quarter tank of fuel. I check all my fuzes and all are working. So, now I suspect the fuel pump relay that my manual talks about but doesn't show me where the relay is located. First, I would like to know which relay controls the fuel pump. If that doesn't work what else would cause the vehicle not to pump fuel to the engine?
