Customer Question
I'm trying to locate...

I'm trying to locate the A/c relay for my 2003 f-150 my unit cools off and on. My box is like the one on the top

Mechanic's Assistant: 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.

Sometimes I get cool air and other times it's blowing hot air,then it starts blowing cool air. also the center console that gives the temperature light is out.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

If it's possible

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Ford Mechanic should know about your Ford?

No other wise it's working fine

Here are the INTERIOR LIGHTS diagrams,

If that is the only bulb out, I believe that is just a burned out bulb.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
