Relay resistance values

How do I find out what the various resistance values for a variety of Ford Power Distribution Box and black relay box by the battery (not the CCRM because these relays are replacable) for a 1999 Ford Taurus 3.0L Vulcan V-6 Pushrod/Overhead Valve engine?

Relays only have coils inside most of the time. and resistance in these coils is not relevant to diagnosing them. The contacts do develop resistance when they go bad, but there is no standard for a any given resistance. The bestway to check a relay is to energize the coil with 12V. Then checking the resistance to the contact. There should not be any resistance at all. If there is any then the contact is bad.

Wich one of the fuses under the hood of my 91 cadilla deville is the starter relay

They are not the same thing, fuses and relays. Under the hood will be a power distribution center, a box containing several fuses and relays for various circuits on the car. There should be a labeling of the fuses and relays on the box cover or on the underside of the cover. The starter relay may be there or it may be in a separate box or mounted sometimes on the firewall of the car. But it will be under the hood, somewhere. Over the years, they have been found about everywhere on cars or trucks, even under the dash. But yours is probably in the fuse and relay box, the power distribution box.

Where is the relay switch for 2004 olds alero

Not sure which relay you are looking for, but most relays are in the Power Distribution box in the engine compartment. This is a black plastic box with a removable lid. The underside of the lid will give a location for each relay circuit and also fuse locations for a variety of other circuits.

2000 ranger fuse diagram

Fuel Pump relay switch is in the main box usually located on the drivers side Fender in a black box. According to the owner's manual in the power distribution box in the engine
compartment (Ford recommends disconnecting your battery)
Relay # 5 is the fuel pump relay , and also in the PD BOX is a 20 amp mini-fuse
for the fuel pump relay + RAP module in location # 9

( P.S. - don't forget your fuel pump inertia switch , in the right front passenger area ,
by the right front kick panel )Sometimes this gets kicked by passenger or if the car is bummed hard it could set this item to shut down fuel system. Best of Luck
