Not right part for truck

Listed to fit a 2002 ram pick up , but does not you have to use the 2003 relays to fit correctly for the 2002.

              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!

              • Q:

                Could this fuse relay cause my fuel pump to not come on?
                I've replaced everything but this so far...

                  yes it could. I would check the fuel pump fuse first then if all good try
                  to swap the fuel pump relay with a similar one you may already heave in the
                  fuse box. if same results you may have a bad fuel pump.

                  No, RAMON! This BWD Relay - Part No. R3146 is not a transmission control relay for your 1997 Dodge Intrepid with 3.5L Engine. The exact fit transmission control relay for your vehicle is unavailable online. However, I'd recommend checking with your local store for availability.

                I looked up door lock relay and this came up as an exact fit. I need it for my drivers side back door, it makes a noise when locks are engaged. Is this the correct part? It had this and another relay so I figured its just 2 brands. I have a 1999 dodge Durango 2wd,v8, 5.2L.

                  Hi Whittie! Few common symptoms of a faulty compressor control relay are inconsistent cooling, compressor is not turning on, and no cold air. However, 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.

                  Happy to help, Martha! The most common cause of the problem you are having is a defective transfer case shift motor. We're offering the exact fit Dorman Transfer Case Shift Motor - Part No. 600-806 for your 2004 Ford Expedition online. However, I'd suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

                  Hi Mike! I think it is a rebuild issue. However, 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 mechanic where your vehicle transmission rebuild was done.
