      This could possibly be the problem. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

    • A:

      The relay control module actually controls the majority of the engine components like injectors, fan, a/c compressor, and the list goes on. I don't have all the information in front of me but the Chilton's books gives all the familiars. One thing to remember and know is that there are quite a few different modules and replacements are specific. Like F8CZ-12B577-BA code Z, is the specific model that fits a '99 Ford Escort ZX2 Cool. Check with the Ford Escort ZX2 Forum for more information as well.

      The relay control module controls cooling fan motor, power (hot at all times), fuel pump output, cooling fan motor (high speed), PCM relay control line, Power (hot in start or run), ground, A/C clutch coil ground, HFC relay control, A/C clutch coil field, and more PCM control and info lines. If I am not mistaken PCM and some sensors actually control A/C operation. You may need to take your vehicle to an A/C Shop, diagnosing it on your own my be pretty intense, not to mention tools required.

      Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

      Answered on 2/1/2012 by Dennis from AAP
    • A:

      I don't believe the relay control module is your problem, there is a way to diagnose the ignition coil and also to check for secondary confirmation of spark. Your local library should have a database with an auto repair book accessible to you, ours in San Antonio, TX has Chilton and it goes through a diagnostic routine to try to troubleshoot your situation, you'll need a Digital Ohm meter and some other tools to do it but you can. Good Luck!
