I can start the car by replacing the side with the two wires. And it runs fine but I would really like to get to the base of the problem. I have not hooked either of the two on the one side to the new power from the ignition switch because i dont want to burn anything up .Thanks for any help I can get.
Trying to diagnose a wiring issue without being able to physically see the wiring is like trying to drive blindfolded.
There are some links in the "Useful Info
" sticky thread that have all sorts of wiring diagrams in them.
Look for the "Ford Fuel Injection and Very Useful" links.
You should also get you a Chilton's or Haynes manual with the wiring diagrams. They are very helpful when tracing wires.
