1999 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 100k miles
when turning the key, there are no sounds and no indication from the gauges that electrical current is flowing. I can start the engine by shorting the celenoid. My local auto part store sold me a starter relay (a solid plastic thing approx 4 inches wide) that looks like it should just plug in somewhere. I can't find anything near the fuse panel or under the hood that looks like it. Where could this be located and does that sound like the real problem?
