Hi, the computer you are talking about is called the ECM (Engine Control Module), Please if you are not an auto tech., don't try it.
The ECM for engine control is located under the console area near the firewall of engine compartment inside the car.To find it you must remove the small plastic decorative caps and remove the Phillips head screws on both sides of center console area. This area is under the shifter and emergency brake. After removing screws from both sides, remove the trim panels on both sides to expose the areas under the console. Now look toward the front of the car in the center, under the stereo & A/C area of dash. The ECM is sitting upside-down with 3 plugs in it.

I own a 1982 Ford Fairmont Futura. 200 6 cyl.80, owner.. Power steering pump was replaced. Same problem, no power steering. Mechanic said rack/pinion,I say I got bad pump... Squeal constantly

A perfect pump will squeal... being improperly forced or
trying to work with a defective rack!

Might be tire to heed the advice of your paid professional...
(in my humble opinion)...

And don't forget those tie-rod ends & ball joints while you are DOWN THERE...!! Parts & prices provided below,1982,fairmont,3.3l+200cid+l6,1127764,steering,rack+and+pinion+complete+unit,7388?

You have either a one-of-a-kind car or you are wrong on the year or model. Fairmont didn't extend beyond 1983.
If you have no experience working on engines, I recommend you buy the Haynes manual for the car:
1978-83 Fairmont
