Jumped what relay ? Rather then messing up your vehicle all together , take it to a qualified repair shop .

SOURCE: took off this morning and the escape started

you are right, its probably the fuel filter. wow 113120 miles without changing the fuel filter. also, change the air filter and have your intake manifold cleaned. this will greatly improve acceleration and fuel economy. best wishes - hotratchet

Battery died but when opened up to check battery there is a ticking sound

Yes one of the relays could be draining the battery.
I would open the fuse and relay boxes and try to find where the noise is coming from. If it is a relay, pull it out and see if the noise stops.

No power to radio pontiac grand am 2004

Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing ? Following wiring diagrams , checking B+ voltage at different points along the circuit . Did you use a interface module with the aftermarket radio ? The GM radio is hooked to the class 2 serial data network . Your best bet , take it to a qualified installer .

2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4x4 Light Problem

You checked to make sure you didn't blow all the bulbs at once?
If your front park lights work, then the headlight switch is probably alright.
You may have a taillight relay in your fusebox. Check the owner's manual. It may show it.

Kinda baffled with this one. Went to town one day, truck started everytime. Next day, nothing. No clicking noise, nothing. Battery is new. All the accessories work. Thinking it was the starter I changed...

Could be the starter motor relay in the fuse panel in the cab.

You can swap this for one of the full size ISO trailer tow adapter relays to test long term, to see if the intermittent problem comes back again.

In case you need it, you can download the owners manual from Ford in PDF format.

Car isn't starting

may have blown the ECU which these use the computer to ground the relays and other circuits you potentially sent power through this grounding network and possibly fried the ECU.

, let the dealer do it.
