Fan relay

Hello. Does anyone who is intimate with ford escorts know where I can find the fan relay on 86 escort? Fan won’t come on when I turn on a/c. I hot wired the fan and it works. Fuses are fine. Seems to me d the relay and test it if I can find it, I can test it. Thanks so much. Steve.

The fan relay for your 1996 Ford Escort is located under the hood, driver’s side, front side of the strut tower, mounted on the wheel well.

Hellokit; Wow! In the wheelwell is a new one on me. I’ve been searching like crazy for this…Haynes manual useless. Thanks so much for your reply. Regards…Steve.

Er, Steve, the directions from www.autozone.com say on the wheel well, in the engine compartment.
