      Works fine, Advance application not as extensive as it could be. It would be nice to have cross-referencing application guide.

        I had issues with the headlights on my car. After talking with a friend discovered that this was a relay underneath the dash instead of under the hood.

                My wipers in my 2000 Ford Taurus had stopped working, after a wiper motor replace and a multi-switch replace, they still didn't work. I Googled for help and was lead to check the relays. Tapping on the old ones, my wipers worked. So I bought the two that control the motor and speed and my wipers work again!

                            no, you need to check fuses, and bulb sockets... if they are melted, replace. then if all that is ok, it's your brake light switch.

                            The starter relay is usually located under the hood on most vehicles. Part No. 30022 is the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle which should list the placement of all the relays and fuses for your vehicle.

                            Hi Randy, great question! The headlight relay may be the possible cause of the problem on your Ford Ranger. However, the answer to that is perhaps a bit more complicated than you think. This really may need a mechanic’s expertise to determine. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not solve or be the problem.
