Engine Tech / Re: anti knock sensor
Last post by midnight cat -
Thanks Softtouch.  Thought so.
My 1986 Cougar has the 3.8L.  Does the car have a anti knock sensor? I called Autozone and they said the car never had one. Is that correct?  Or maybe it's called a knock detonation sensor? Can someone verify if Autozone is correct.  Thanks!

Thanks Ductape.

According to the 86 3.8 ECS booklet only a few very early mustangs/capris had them, doesnt even show the location if they did.

From the 88 Tbird/Cougar EVTM:
Relays are "behind console, near ashtray."
With the keyless entry feature, there no relays. Keyless entry module is "mounted on package tray behind rear seat"

I thought I read somewhere it would cause issues with the digital volt/amp gauge in the dash unless it was somehow bridged? I may be over thinking it. Thank you for your response.

Electrical Tech / Power lock relays
Last post by Pro SC -
Hi, I am needing to replace the relay for unlocking the doors on my 88 sport. They were working and now only the lock part works. From what I understand is that they are located under the right front seat. I have checked and nothing there unless they are under the carpet which I could not believe Ford would do but who knows? I know it is under the dash on my 85 but I thought the 87/88 cars were under the seat.

I’m wanting to do a 3g upgrade on my 85 Tbird ( 5.0). My car has the full digital dash and I was curious if anything would be different in regards to doing this swap / upgrade?
