1994 ford thunderbird fuse panel diagram

Look on the inside if the panel cover. There is usually a list. Owners manual has it too. If all else fails, I have the shop manual. If youre describing the radiator fan, this is probably on a relay under the hood. Use care! Fan can run with the key off!!!

1994 Ford Thunderbird 4.6L V8 has overflow but no radiator cap... how do you refill after draining coolant?

I'm not sure I understand the question. Fill the overflow to the "cold" mark, then fill the radiator and replace the cap. If this doesn't answer your question, can you elaborate?

Location of fan relay or fuse for motor

I have a 94 Thunderbird SC and the relay is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment behind the headlight assembly and to the left of the radiator. You should see a rectangular shaped relay tucked in there.

Where is the engine coolant drain plug located on a 1994 ford thunderbird?

The radiator does, however, have a pet-**** or drain plug on the left side of the radiator. It is here where you can drain the radiator and engine. Keep in mind that all the water will not be removed because by nature of the block's position in the compartment, unless you use a flushing tee, you won't be able to remove all the anti-freeze. ---------------- It's called a drain **** and it's straight down behind and under the radiator on the left side way down there. Even though it's way down there it's still easier than getting to it from the bottom. It's not a typical screw type device though. It has a notch (metal tip coming out of one side of it and no threads. Just turn 3/4 turn and pull straight out. thanks

Radiator Flush Plug

look under the left end of the radiator, at the bottom. Under the "bumper", a small white plastic's a valve of sorts to drain the radiator.
