no spark... just died heading to work....is there and where would the rely be located for the pcm??...the only code pulled was for the coil pack, there are 4 on each ... would it be normal for both to go bad at same time??

2001 Ford Explorer Question: pcm relay?
Answer #1DaveJHM June 26, 2011, 22:45Master
The 5.0L V8 in the 2001 Explorer has two coils - each one firing four plugs.
The ignition system / spark is controlled by the PCM.
There is a PCM relay in the battery junction box - the box with fuses and relays near the battery.
The crankshaft sensor is also one to have a look at to make sure it is sending the signal.

The processor will be fine; don't sweat that...very rare there is an issue there.

Does a PCM relay trip at the same time as a fuel pump relay if the fuel pump is faulty?
