Hello,
Have you tried a new starter relay in the fuse box under driver side of dash?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I switched it with another one from the fuse panel. Is that ok ?
Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 2 years ago
Hi,
It should be as long as they are identical relays.Below is how you test it.

If you remove relay and jumper cavity 30 and 87 does the starter engage?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I just tried using a jumper wire between 30 and 87 and starter doesn't engage. How do I check continuity in relay?
Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 2 years ago
It should have engaged the starter!
Is there power at cavity #30?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 2 years ago
I changed that to #30

Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 2 years ago
Is this an automatic trans or manual shift?
Check that power and let me know both answers
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Using a test light , there is no power at 30. It's an automatic
Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 2 years ago
Thanks,
I would have to suspect a bad fusible link that feeds that cavity.
The fusible links are located at the passenger side rear of engine compartment.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't see it on either side. Does it come out of one of the big harnesses or by its self?
Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 2 years ago
Hi,
It should be inside the harness if i remember right.
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
There's about 10 wiring harnesses on the drivers side near the firewall with about 200 wires coming out of them going to plugs.
Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 2 years ago
Hi,
I dont think they are inside the harness now that i think about it but i'm away from the shop right to look at my service manual now so i will see if someone else can help.
