Re: Dangling relay,'96 Force
You are probably looking at the relay for the electric heater element.
Heater relay is a clear rectangular relay about 1 inch square and 2.5
inches long. The factory originally had it secured by the floor of the

- Hi group,
Just wanted to post a note about the high-voltage fuse
configuration which is confusing. My electric heater ('99 Force) wasn't
working and it was because there was a blown 6 amp fuse where the 20 amp
heater fuse should be (and the 20 amp fuse was in the 6 amp DC-DC fuse
slot). Turns out the order listed in the 1997 manual online is not the
order of the fuses in my 1999 car, so don't assume.
In my car anyway, the correct fuses are as follows. (The
high-voltage fuse box is under the hood, passenger side, in front of the
service disconnect near the rear of the compartment). All are 250V fuses.
Closest to front of car -- 2A, for the amp-hour meter
Next back -- 20A slow-blow, for the electric heater
Third back -- 20A, for the air conditioner
Rearmost -- 6A, for the DC-DC system.
The '97 manual (p.46) lists them just by number, as 1) DC-DC, 2)
Heater, 3) Air, 4) amp meter. Maybe they're in that order in the '97
