1997 Sable Starter Relay Question

Post by jeff771 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:00 pm

I am having trouble verifying where the starter relay is on my Sable. Everything online and in the user manual says that it is in position 32 of the power distribution block. The block on my car doesn't seem to have that section at all. I have circled where I believe it should be.

Any help is appreciated.

Interesting problem, For what it's worth I was able to find the following photos online for the '96, '97 & '98 Sable and as you can see, they are different but the '97 does match your panel. What I found shows that the corresponding Taurus parts are the same. They look the same except for the far right end which is not present on the '97 as you well know. It makes me wonder if the starter relay on the '97s is somewhere else?

The documentation found on the wiring diagrams on BB industries does not match the '97. Unless someone here can help, your next option would be to ask Ford
