Ford Starter Relay Location

Do all Ford models use the remote starter relay type? Have there been any changes on the new models, like switching to on starter solenoid?  Thanks.

Re: Ford Starter Relay Location

This is the normal operation of a typical starting system.

When the digital transmission sensor (park neutral switch) recognizes that the vehicle is in either PARK or NEUTRAL and the ignition switch is placed in the START position, it sends a signal to the micro ISO relay that, in turn, sends a voltage signal to the starter solenoid, which will engage the starter motor to crank the engine at a speed fast enough to permit the engine to start.

This is the way the starting system is being used for now and in the future, there will always be a new way to make a particular system work. When this happens we will all be properly informed.

Security systems have been integrated into starting systems to prevent theft. Immobilizers and coded keys have been added to the starting systems.

In the end when the systems work together the vehicle will start the same way as described above.

Re: Ford Starter Relay Location

Hi TH2, Thanks for your answer. Do you know if all Ford models use the remote starter relay type? Does the battery red power cable connect directly to the relay? Thanks.

Re: Ford Starter Relay Location

You're thinking of the older type of relay (solenoid) that was separate from the starter.

Their older starters were just the motor and the solenoid was mounted on the fender or firewall.

The newer cars use the starter relay that energizes the starter solenoid that engages the starter.

If there is anything you need to know, please give specific details of what you are asking so I can help you better.
