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!

              Comments about BWD Relay:

              Please list the relay description as a headlamp and wiper relay so people know they found the right part. It is misleading to be listed only as a headlamp relay.

                  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.

                  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.
