The relays are usually beside or inside the fuse box under the hood. There may be 2 or 3 of these, many times they are identical. Fuel pump, power windows, etc. I would first pull all of them and clean the contacts. Then if still dead, start switching them around. If the fuel pump starts, you still don't know which one is bad, but you do know one is bad and you need to buy a new one.

Today my running lights stopped working, I have low and high beams. For a day or two prior to them stop working, the running lights would flicker on vehicle start-up.
Is this a fuse?
Thks in advance,

With your other message, a wild guess would be a bad headlight switch???
Or bad multi-switch. This is the the switch on turn signal stalk. I can be used to dim your headlights, right?
#99 of 259 Alternator/Battery/Relay?
Jan 13, 2008 (10:44 am)
I have a 2002 bought in the summer of 2004. Every year when it gets below around 40 in temp the voltage guage wont go over about a quarter for 10min or maybe 10 miles then it jumps to normal about half way up the guage. Had the ford house look at it, they replace alternator, later the batter all in the first year. The problem persists. This year Im driving over a hour to and from work. One day it didnt kick up and i tried to get it home knowing I was running the batter down. Got it home, replaced the alternator. Battery was still good. Problem still remained. Replaced two relays. Problem still remains. Mechanic friend bypassed all wiring from alternator to battery with additional wire. Engaged alternator immediately. Is there another relay? Could it be the wiring? I do have some internal electrical problems also like dome light staying on. Cd player and its ghost. Could it be the brain? HELP,,,IM SICK OF THIS TRUCK

I took to checking and replacing the relay switch (main control box under hood) for the washer pump and its is now working fine. Weird thing, before I touched the old relay I started the truck up and the running lights were working.
Now I am confused.

The running lights are still flickering, when I turn on the headlights no flickering is observed and all lights (fog, high, low beams) work.
