        My ac compressor clutch wasn't engaging and I thought I would have to spend hundreds to fix it, but I switched the old relay with this one and turns out that was the issue so now my AC is back to blowing Alaska.

            A:

            I'm happy to help! The relay will likely be found in the battery junction box under the hood on your 1997 Ford Expedition. Your vehicle owner's manual should provide the location of all of the fuses and relays found on your SUV. You may also find a repair manual helpful for tracking down electrical bugs, such as Haynes Part No. 36059 or Chilton Part No. 26666.

        • Q:

          I just had my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 w/4.7 engine checked because the check engine light came on and it told me my "radiator fan relay circuit" is either stuck open or shorted. Can anyone give me an idea how much this is and where I can find this on the truck. It does not tell me it is an "air conditioning relay", all it says is radiator relay. Thanks

            A:

            I'm happy to help, Rick! From what I have found there is a common issue with the radiator fan shroud that holds water and causes fuse #39 to blow. This would be the first place I would suggest checking. If it is the relay, from my understanding of the trouble code on your vehicle, you would be needing to replace the A/C Condenser Fan Motor Relay, BWD Part No. R4807 or Wells Vehicle Electronics Part No. 20356.

            If you are unsure of the cause of this trouble code I suggest obtaining a repair manual that may assist you with your diagnosis, Haynes Part No. 30042 or Chilton Part No. 20405.

            If you are still unsure of the diagnosis, try our 'Need expert help?' link located further down this page.

            A:

            The relay for the air conditioner on your Mercury Sable should be located in a black box on the radiator support. This is a multi-function relay box and is sealed. This box has a large bundle of wires plugged into it.

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            This Factory Air Relay - part# 36126 is an elctromechanical relay. Electromechanical relays are circuit protection and control devices used by the PCM and other sensitive circuits. They use an electromagnet (coil) that controls an arm that swings between two contacts. When low current is passed through the coil a magnetic field is created that draws the arm towards the high current circuit. When the two contacts connect high current is sent to the compressors clutch.

            A:

            The relay box is rectangular in shape and is black with a snap-on lid. Remove the lid from the box and locate the AC compressor relay. Normally it is 24th in the interior fuse panel.

          I have a 2005 Toyota Camry (4cyl) and my A/C and heat ONLY works on high. The low and medium do not produce any air. Would this be what I need? I was told that it could be the relay switch or the speed control resistor pack.

            A:

            The air conditioning relay should be the possible cause of the problem. 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 4/17/2012 by Vincent from AAP
          • A:

            There's 99.9% chance that your problem is the HVAC blower motor RESISTOR, which is typically screwed to the side of the HVAC housing (& usually near the blower motor itself to help cool it).

            Application data shows 2 different part options. ATC (Automatic Temperature Controls) or Manual. The 2 relays are totally different, so buying the correct part will depend on which HVAC system your 2005 Toyota Camry has.

            The WITH ATC relay has a slender rectangular plug with 4 terminal spades lined up side to side. It also has a large aluminum heat sink attached to it.

            The MANUAL controls relay has a relatively square plug with 4 terminals. Each relay attaches with 2 screws.

            Blower speed loss is NEVER a relay. (Unless total loss of all speeds, which is very rare, then the issue may also be blower motor itself or a fuse/bad wire/short.)

            Something to note: A relay is merely an electrically controlled switch that turns another electrical circuit on or off. It's not a type of speed control.
