Where is the starter relay located

Asked by Jan 20, 2014 at 01:03 PM about the 2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Limited 4.6L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

n I try to start my 2008 sport trac, the engine keep turning over. I can let go of the key and
it continues to turn over. I replaced the stater, thinking it might have been the silinoid but it
did not work. It appears that the silinoid is staying engaged.

Sounds like a body control module (BCM) problem. When you turn the ignition key the ignition switch sends an "engine start request" signal to the BCM. The BCM then cranks the engine for about 15 seconds or until the engine starts. Whichever comes first. HTH. -Jim

It was the fuel pump, which is located in the gas tank.
