It's a multi-relay box. It contains 3 relays incorporated into 1 box. I belive it has the fuel pump relay, computer relay and fan relay in it.

I have a1991 ford Taurus the electric fan stopped working,after testing the fan by hooking it up directly to the battery the fan still works. Trying to find the fuse box under the hood can you help?

Hi, welcome to my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

More than likely the CCRM has failed (Constant Control Relay Modual) it is located under the plastic shield above the radiator. It houses the fan relay.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

What are the steps to replacing a radiator in my 6 cylinder with a/c

Not really that difficult..... Unfasten the screws that hold the shrouds for both fans. Remove the electric fan and just push the other one back out of the way. Remove the air filter box (bolts visible in the bottom under the filter) That will give you better access to the trans cooler lines and lower hose.
Remove the cross brace above the radiator and the trans cooling lines. (one line is a plastic squeeze clip...careful not to break it but do clean it well so it grabs correctly when putting it back on).
Remove the lower and upper hoses and lift the radiator up carefully. Make note of any smaller brackets and what-not I may have forgotten. Anything still holding it in will be obvious.
Re-assembly is the reverse but be very careful not to damage the core. Also, before putting it back in, make sure there are no leaves or other obstructions trapped between the radiator and a/c condenser.

Electric fan not working

there is a fan inside the car on the bottom of the heater box, above the passenger's feet. and there is another fan under the hood, next to the radiator. they are both common electrical devices which can be bought on ebay or any local auto parts store.

Where is the liscene plate lights fuse at

The driver's side fuse block is to the left of the steering

wheel, under the instrument panel.

Snap off the cover to reveal the fuses. You'll find a fuse

puller clipped to the inside of the cover. Place the wide

end of the fuse puller over the plastic end of the fuse.
Squeeze the ends over the fuse and pull it out.

The Parking lamps and running lights and license plate lights all run off the same fuse, it is fuse 8c in the above fuse box

Car overheats

The problem of over-heating could be due to one or all of these defective parts:
(i) thermostat
(ii) radiator
(iii) fan relay
(iv) fan switch
(v) water temperature sensor.
In your case, I suspect that your radiator probably is clogged, so needing replacement.

To Replace the radiator:
a. allow the engine to cool.
b. place a suitable container under the radiator, and drain it out by turning backward the wing-nut under it.
c. open the radiator cap to allow atmospheric air to further push down the coolant.
d. with a piece of pliers, depress the top clamp holding the radiator hose. Do the same for the lower radiator hose.
e. remove from the bottom of the radiator and plug wth suitable bolts, the two transmission fluid rubber lines.
f. with a 10-mm socket and wrench remove the two bolts holding the radiator to the front frame.
g. depress the electrical plug at the bottom of the radiator. Remove its thermo switch at the bottom left hand side of the radiator. (replace with new if changing to new radiator) Also notice two rubber cups at bottom of radiator.
i, installation of the new radiator is reverse of removal. Refill radiator with new coolant.

To replace thermostat:
a. disconnect the negative terminal of the battery.
b. drain the coolant into a container, as
explanied above.
c. remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing on the engine block.
d. remove the two bolts from the thermostat housing. Please note the way it was bolted to the engine. Clean its housing and seating areas.
e. fit a new o-ring to the thermostat, and replace with a new thermostat.
f. tighten its bolts to 14-12-foot pounds.
g. Replace the top and bottom hoses back.
i. refill with new coolant.

To replace the fan relays:
a. open the hood.
b. disconnect the negative battery terminal.
c. locate the meduim-size black plastic box on the driver's side fender. This is where the fan relays are. Look inside the cover of the medium-size plastic box to see the fan relay positions.
d. gently and firmly pull out each fan relay. Replace with new ones as needed.

To replace the water temperature sensor:
a. this is bolted to the top of thermostat housing.
b. unplug it from it location.
c. use a 14-mm deep socket to remove the temperature sensor. Replacement is reverse of removal.

Autozone sells the replacement if you need one for about $28. It is a Duralast #DR755 (link provided at the bottom) and is for the manual speed control, not the climate control or automatic types, though the procedure *may* be similar.

I did this job myself in less than 30 minutes with a flashlight and a few simple hand tools. You might have to get into a slightly awkward position to see & remove / reinstall the screws that hold the resistor pack in place under the dashboard however.

1) Remove the two screws from the plastic cover under the glove box & disconnect / remove electrical connectors secured to the cover. Set the cover aside.

2) Empty the glove box of the contents.

3) With the glove box open, push the clip on rear of the left side of the glove box out of the way to allow it to fall forward.

4) Remove the electrical connector from the blower motor located to the right of the glove box opening.

5) Pull the connector and cable downward tot he floor. There is a thick rubber band that may be holding the cable - pull it away to slide the cable out easily.

6) Close the glove box.

7) Look upward - close to the firewall to follow the cable removed in a previous step (a flashlight can help out here). It enters a plastic plate held in place with two screws. There is also a narrow electrical connector on this plastic part.

8) Disconnect the narrow electric connector by pulling it straight downward.

9) Remove the two screws that hold the plastic part in place.

10) Allow the part to fall / gently pry away from surface.

11) Reinstall in reverse order.

The link for the $28 Duralast #DR755 replacement mentioned above:

I hope this helps!
