    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Relay:

    Works as intended for a replacement. You just need to be aware it is not keyed like OEM so you could put it 1n 180 degrees out of phase (it won't go all the way in but you could bend the connectors). It is manufactured larger to allow it to fit over the keyed section. This leaves a big space on the keyed side that can allow moisture into the connectors and corrode. I intend to use Dow Corning DC4 dielectric compound to seal this section of the connection. At the very least ensure the relay hangs with the open side facing down so that even if it gets a little wet it can drain.

      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Relay:

      Biggest problem I had was getting the old relay off the mounting rail in the 1991 Cougar. New one snapped into place, plugged up, and now we have ABS brakes again (this unit replaced a failed ABS pump motor relay.) Only con - and being a universal replacement I understand why! - is that this relay isn't brown, like the old ABS relay was (to help identify it in the cluster of relays it's in.) So I wrapped some brown electrical tape around it to help identify it in six months or so.

      • Q:

        1988 f150 5.0...My dashboard gauges are not working. All four (fuel, temp,oil pressure and battery) quit at the same time. All fuses, circuit breakers, etc. are good. I can't find out what controls the current to the gauges. Can you tell me if it could be this relay. There are only 2 relays on the truck, that I know of. One is for the fuel pump, it is working. The other one I don't know what it does, or if it has failed. If this is not what I need, can you tell me what I do need and where it is located on the truck?

          Sorry, Dennis. Without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

          Thanks for the response. Looking at the diagram you sent the extra pin is number 5. I can still plug the new relay in but the convertible top still won't work.

          Thanks

          A:

          With reference to your inquiry on the BWD Headlight Relay - part# R647, your 1984 Ford E-350 does not have a relay for the head lights and the problem should be with the dimmer switch. The dimmer switch would be located on the floor to the left of the brake pedal. 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.
