won't start sometimes. When you turn the key, no dash lights, no action from starter
either. Also, when driving down the road it has stalled and won't restart same way. Trial and error we found that by wiggling a relay under the hood, it will start and dash lights come on when you turn the key. The relay is under the hood, near where the master cylinder is located on most cars and there are 2 2" x 3" covers, the one closest to the wheel is the one that we wiggled. it has 3 relays under it, one large and 2 smaller ones. it is one of the two smaller ones that has to e wiggled. we are trying to identify what the 2 relays are for to troubleshout further. Truck is a Ford RF250 7.3 year 2002.
