Main relay cross reference
« on: January 11, 2019, 03:49:28 PM »

Anyone know if use of the main relay is shared by any other car?

I would imagine that the Protege and other Mazdas from that time period do. The Tracer may also use it. Got a part number?

modern capri says its a denso 061000-1000, ford E8GY12A646C, looking to help a Florida driver whose mechanic says that's what she needs... my stash is empty and no junk yards local with a Capri, so wondered if another junk yard car would be a donor...

$440 on MCP??? That's some next level shit there.

$44 on eBay, brand new.

Does not look like it's used by any other cars.

Have they bench tested it with a multimeter? Given the scarcity it's worth diagnosing for sure
Should be able to pop the metal cover off and service the bits inside, not too much can go wrong with them other than maybe a dirty contact

I may have one left in my horde if all else fails

Ha, yeah that ad for new ones ended in 2015... just frustrating to try long distance help when in 5 minutes hands on I could probably tell what the car needed...

That looks to be a regular relay with a fancy connector. I'm with Rocketman on this, pull the cover off and see if the contacts can be cleaned up. I'll bet that it's a standard type relay and you could substitute another for it and swap over the wiring connector.
