It appears to be on the passenger side behind the glove box. If it is still original from Ford it will be Brown. The fuel pump relay should also be in this area and it will be green.

Reply to autodoc_2000's Post: I am only trying to get the injectors to spray on the 85 Ford T-bird 3.8L v6 the wires i referred to in the last question I think is linked to the injector problem. I have a large brn.org going out from the starter relay and also a smaller brn/org wire with a grey femaile plug, also a green one fromthe wiring harness from EEC control relay with no end but an inline fuse.I don't know any other way to explain it if you don't understand what i'm talking about neither do I.

In line fuse? thats not standard equipment. Do you mean a fusable link?? If so is it hot or dead?

I can't find the ECM where the brn/org wire starts. It comes out and splits 3 ways one th the battery one to the ignition and back to the EEC power relay. My problem seems to be at the point where the brn/org splits and goes 3 ways. the wire comes out from the no l port and then connects at the starter relay where it splits into a lrg brn/org wire that is about 18 inches long with a female line plug on the end with no place to plug it the one that is on the other end is a smaller brn/org wire with a grey inline female plug. confused

Reply to Marc's Post: the wire that goes to the eec power relay is connected it goes out through the firewallI find it when it comes back to the starter relay switch there on the relay the brn/org wire then splits two ways one large brn/org wire goes back toward the firewall and has a black female line plug on it tere is no place to plug it. the other one going towards the front is small and has a grey inline plug with no place to connect it. That is the best way I can describe the problem.

Reply to Marc's Post: The inline fuse probably is a fuse able link and bothe are hot.
