Replacement relays

Post by TaurusSHO_Scorpio » Thu Jul 12, 2018 4:22 pm

The car that I've got is a 1988 Merkur Scorpio which has been running well aside from a few electrical issues. Feeling ambitions, I decided to troubleshoot the radio since that is a relatively simple system. Upon opening it up I found that a previous owner had fiddled with a pair of fuses in the main fuse/relay box resulting in one of the fuses shorting out and melting a hole through 2-3 of the main relays and causing burns on 3 more relays.

Rockauto, Napa, and O'Reilly's offer no information of other vehicles that shared the same relays, and don't carry anything compatible aside from generic starter relays...

Have any of you had to replace the relays before?

I have good used Scorpio relays available but nothing new. Just let me know the colors / part # stamping on them. For the fastest response you can email me directly at
