Most difficult part was removing the old relay. I used solder-wick, but a Solder-sucker would have been much easier. Soldered the new relay in and all is well. Maybe 90 minutes total time from battery disconnect to reconnect.

How has the replacement relay worked out? I'll be troubleshooting a random stall this weekend and am gathering info on potential repairs.

On Strider's original instructions, very good except #7 is not a ground wire but the +12VDC cable going straight to the battery. And the internal relays can be replaced if the PC board is good but they're soldered in so you need a solder sucker and soldering iron. There's a guy on Ebay selling the replacement relay for $20. Can't find them anywhere else. But $20 beats $400 for a new fuse box and $700 or more for the dealer. It's not too hard to get it out.

I ended up replacing my relay also. Documented here https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...dom-stall.html

So far, no issues.

Exclamation Doing the same work in my 05 Navigator

My fuse box caught on fire due to a leak from the Sunroof, Yes the Sunroof. I found out that I have a bad weather stripping on the sunroof that cause a run down of rain water on both sides of the front doors. And guess where the fuse boxes is?!! Yep on the side of the passenger doors right where the water falls from.. So now I need to replace the fuse box in order to repair the weather strip on the sunroof.

So if any of you have a sunroof, make sure you have no leaks up there if you do fix it fast or you could be looking at a costly problem down the road.

The sunroof will always leak, that's why there are drain tubes. You need to make sure those aren't clogged. I've had to clean out the tubes in our 2003 twice in the 12 years we've owned it.

No matter what relay I replace it with it keeps buzzing! There is no odometer/temperature on dash, just dashes along with no alarm, power locks. I can't figure it out And it's driving me crazy! Someone please help add to what it is..? I want to be able to return the fuse box if that's the problem. Thanks guys!!

hopefully someone still paying attention to this thread.
same problem except 5.4 and i soldered in a new FP relay. put it all back together, turn on the key, relay hums, and all the check lights stay on and i have no odo/outside temp and engine don't crank. when i try to start i get nothing. return the key to on position and i get a "ding ding."
any ideas?

Ford fuse box problems

These are notorious for issues with the fuel pump relay and most likely your used replacement also has the same issues as your original fuse box. I offer a repair service which will get your vehicle back to proper working condition, if you would like me to repair yours you can contact me at [email protected]

i didn't replace the board with another used one. i replaced just the R303 relay on the circuit board.

Must have another component that failed as well or a wiring problem on the vehicle side.
