Should be under the hood, passenger side, near the air filter housing. Not sure if an '88 uses a power distribution box, or just attaches the relays to fender, but that's where I would expect to fiind it.
'87 Bronco II XLT 4x4 & '92 Explorer XLT 4x4 & '98 Chev Suburban K1500 SLT 4x4
On the passenger side fender & counting left to right, it's starter relay, EGR solenoid, "EGR gas recirculation valve",MAP sensor, then the fuel pump relay.
Thats how it is on my 87 Ranger, probably the same on yours
Thanks guys. I'll check them out tomorrow. I just picked this thing up yesterday and remember three relays screwed to the fender. So the fuel pump relay sould be the one closest to the firewall? I get my left and rights confused. lol
I have power to the yellow but not to the orange one when the key is turned on. Looks like someone had switched relay locations cause the only one with those color wires is the front one. It has a green plug on it also. I put a new relay in and no change.
We also tried putting 12 volts to the inertia switch and the wire got hot.
Well It's running. I gave it a once over when it was light out. I have 12 volts when I turn the key on at the inertia switch for a few seconds. Then it will drop to seven. When I crank it, it raises back to 12. I put more fuel in the tank and it started. Apperently one gallon wasn't enough. When I put more in it fired. I feel like a tard now. lol Anyways it's running kinda rough so I'll put new fuel filters on and give it a tune up and go from there. Thanks for all the help guys.
