how do know that it's the relay? try this: let the car sit awhile, put key in ignition, and turn to on but do not start, while turning the key listen for a 'click' that's the fuel pump relay....no click then you have problem with the relay or the source that should be activating itgyroscopic said:The early diagnosis was the fuel pump relay, which has led me to CCRM, and this confusion.

Solid state baby!
cougar281, fyi: "solid-state" in electronics means there's no moving parts such as a common relay, typically relays go bad because they lose some of their magnetism, or they get shaken to death & no longer work. with solid-state the only way for them to go bad other then extreme conditions (ie water, fire, ect), is to run too much voltage or current through them. so going from a relay based device to solid state is an inprovement.Cougar281 said:Is that a "New and improved" one from Ford?
Yeah, I've soldered on boards, wires, even heat sinks and it's not fun if you don't have a good iron/gun. I miss my butane-gas soldering iron...Dr. FrankenCougie said:Hotbird, soldering on a board is a bit different then on wires plus a "generic relay" will not have the proper plugs needed for the job as Al was kind enough to show.
