Depends on model and year. Under the hood or under the dash. Some models have relays under the pass side inner fender. The owners manual will tell you specifically.

I hope you had enough Antifreeze in the system. It sounds like the water is frozen in the water pump.

P1121 Ford Throttle Position Sensor Inconsistent with Mass Air Flow Sensor
http://engine-codes.com/p0401_ford.html no they are not related !
Are there any cracks in the rubber hose from air cleaner to throttle body ! That could cause the P1121 air entering after mass air flow sensor !
P1121 - Throttle Position (TP) Sensor Inconsistent with MAF Sensor The PCM monitors a vehicle operation rationality check by comparing sensed throttle position to mass air flow readings. If during key ON engine running self-test the comparison of the TP sensor and MAF sensor readings are not consistent with calibrated load values, the test fails and a diagnostic trouble code is stored in continuous memory.
  • Air leak between MAF sensor and throttle body
  • TP sensor not seated properly
  • Damaged TP sensor
  • Damaged MAF sensor
Drive vehicle and exercise throttle and TP sensor in all gears. A TP PID (TP V PID) less than 4.82 % (0.24 volt) with a LOAD PID greater than 55% or a TP V PID greater than 49.05% (2.44 volts) with a LOAD PID less than 30% indicates a hard fault. P0401 - EGR Flow Insufficient Detected The EGR system is monitored during steady state driving conditions while the EGR is commanded on. The test fails when the signal from the DPF EGR sensor indicates that EGR flow is less than the desired minimum.
  • Vacuum supply
  • EGR valve stuck closed
  • EGR valve leaks vacuum
  • EGR flow path restricted
  • EGRVR circuit shorted to PWR
  • VREF open to D.P.F. EGR sensor
  • D.P.F. EGR sensor downstream hose off or plugged
  • EGRVR circuit open to PCM
  • VPWR open to EGRVR solenoid
  • D.P.F. EGR sensor hoses both off
  • D.P.F. EGR sensor hoses reversed
  • Damaged EGR orifice tube
  • Damaged EGRVR solenoid
  • Damaged PCM
Perform KOER self-test and look for DTC P1408 as an indication of a hard fault. If P1408 is not present, look for contamination, restrictions, leaks, and intermittents

O.K. first disconnect the battery cables/next remove the plastic shrouds around the steering column where you most likely will only be able to get the bottom off but that's O.K. once you can see the bottom you will see a metal button sticking out this is what you see here you must drill out that button once you do it you'll be able to turn the cylinder forward like you want to start the car and you will pull it out to the right that tab you drilled out is what locks the cylinder so it can't turn with out the key be careful while pulling it out the key chime wire is attached to it and if you break it you'll be hearing the bell going off so be careful then on installation you must put the key in the cylinder and rotate it so the square button on the end will be in the right position for the steering column hole and the cylinder will go all the way in look inside and you will understand that the end must fit in and the flats on the cylinder also must fit this is easy don't get frustrated just take your time and remember how you pulled it out it's the same going in reverse removal and connect the battery cables then start the van it will idle rough now because the computer needs to relearn the settings from the sensors this is normal and will straighten out after 10 miles driving just let it run 5 minutes first then go for a ride good luck and go slow and you will not have problems if you do post back with specifics about what is happening so I can help you I'm not there so you need to calmly explain what's happening
replacing-ignation-switch-in-98-ford-wnqgyhdi4dil35xzqruu2vaa-4-0.jpgthis has to line up with the column and where the metal button is too! the bottom shows the way it needs to fit this is upside down below but you can see the flats on the cylinder and the very point that must fit in the column and remember you must twist the cylinder forward to align it and the button goes on the bottom where you drilled it out

I use one of these to remove the belt first Search results for serpentine belt tool then proceed with the change out

1998 Ford... | Answered on Mar 04, 2015

Sounds like a range sensor problem! It mite be bad and need changed! About $80 for the part, versus $180 for ford to put it on!

1998 Ford... | Answered on Mar 04, 2015

You have to check the wires for the TPS. Usually the wires break right at the plug.

1995-1998 - 12.25 qts.
NOTE: After a fluid / filter change with just the pan off - it would take only 4.5 qts. to fill it back up. (The rest remains in the transmission lines, gears, torque converter etc).

1998 Ford... | Answered on Feb 28, 2015

Probably not a fuse. Check to see if you have power at the distributor.

1998 Ford... | Answered on Feb 21, 2015

Many things can cause this, but most likely IMHO is trash in the fuel tank (maybe rust?) is getting past the filter "sock" and causing excess current draw. Could also be bad relay or loose wiring or corrsion in a plug in connector. Might be interesting to insert amp gauge into circuit.
