Can I fix a malfunctioning rely in my car?

I two an Eriba caravan with my Ford C-max 13pin lead. One of the relays between the car and caravan is malfunctioning as the running lights switch on as soon as I plug it in and stay on. Can I buy one myself and fit it or is it really a specialists job? If so anyone know a good place near Birmingham UK?

2002 ford taurus overheats. Just replaced radiator, waterpump, thermostat and heater core. what else can i do to repair. also, ford flushed the system.


About the only thing that you didn't list is the cooling fan. Are you sure that it's working properly? Drive the car until the engine starts to get hot. After awhile you should hear the cooling fan come on. After you have driven the car for a while, park it and open up the hood. If the upper radiator hose is almost too hot to touch, then check to see if the coolant fan is running. If it isn't, then turn the AC switch to "AC MAX". If the fan still doesn't come on, then a malfunction is indicated. Try to locate the fan control relay and swap it with another relay that has the same part number. Use a relay that will allow the engine to run. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature and see if the fan comes on after switching the AC switch to "AC MAX". If the fan now operates, then replace the relay. I hope this is helpful to you. Thank you for trying Fixya.com. If this does not solve your problem, then post a comment and I will respond by getting into more advanced diagnostics.

1997 ford explorer dirver side low beam does not work?


There are two elements in every modern headlight bulb. Either the filament for the low beam has burned out, or you have an open in the wire leading to it from the headlight relay. With the low beam on, test for voltage at that wire. The other option is to switch the bulb out with the other side and see if it works. If it does, then it's just the bulb. If not, you either lost a ground, or the relay is malfunctioning. Check for loose wires, if none, look at replacing the relay.

black socket, black 7 core wire
pin 1 yellow left indicator
pin 2 blue, rear fog light
pin 3 white earth
pin 4 green right indicator
pin 5 brown right side/tail light
pin 6 red brake lights
pin 7 black left side/tail light

Grey socket grey 7 core wiring
pin 1 yellow, reverse
pin 2 blue, supplementary feed (ignition)
pin 3 white, earth
pin 4 green live feed (battery +)
pin 5 brown not connected
pin 6 red supplementary feed (ignition)
Pin 7 black earth

On the discovery there is a purpose made plug behind the panel on the drivers side rear, behind the rear lamp
i think the relay you have bought is for lamp failure you just need a normal 4 pin 30 amp relay.
Good luck Davelee
