JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Ford. The Ford Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

If you turn the key on, open the hood. On the firewall, cross the 2 large terminals on the starter relay above the passenger valve cover on the firewall. Does it crank and does it start?

Sorry I will not be able to help you. I prefer not to associate with someone that uses that language. Hopefully another will not mind helping you. Best of luck.
