Recently it seems like quite a few people been having problems with the RL main-relay.
I had to take some pictures for "kry01" and figure I'd put together a DIY. Hopefully it
will help save someone a few $$.
The starter cranks when you turn the key but the RL will not start.
Make sure fuel is getting up front - disconnect the lower fuel lines from the fuel filter and
turn the key. If it gas is flowing then it's probably not the main-relay nor the fuel pump.
However if gas is not flowing there is a big possibility it's the main relay (small chance it
could also be your fuel-pump).
Steps to replace the Main-Relay:
1) You might first want to disconnect one of the battery cables - just a precaution since
you're replacing an electrical part.
2) Remove the panel below the steering wheel, no tools needed its just snap-on
(see red arrows pointing to metal clips around the edges).
3) Disconnect the connectors from the main-relay box (black box, you might need a
flash light) and remove the relay box (black box). You might need a flat screw driver
to stick between the box and the bracket (see bracket below) The plastic clip on the
box fits into the notch in the bracket (see red arrow).
This is the clip on the box that fits into the slot on the bracket.
4) Connect the new relay and reverse steps 1-3 to put everything back together.
