Electrical problem
1997 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

Hi I am trying to locate the 4X4 relay in my truck. I noticed when I start the truck the 4X4 light Flashes once and I hear the relay click. The other day I had to use the 4 wheel drive to get out of the driveway (Snow). I turned it on and it was fine, drove 40 feet turned it off. Went to take off and was stuck on a snow patch, went to turn in on and nothing, No light and no click. I then noticed that when I start the truck the light comes on for a second but there is no click from the relay? I started to look for the relay but had no luck, well after trying to find it I turned on the truck turned the switch and now it works just fine again. I am thinkiing that maybe the relay is bad or hanging up, just a guess. The 4X4 has been used alot in this truck, and always worked great. This is the model that has a switch on the dash that has 2 positions one for 4X4 and 4X4 Low, this in NOT NOT NOT the automatic 4X4. Thank You
