Is the Main Relay in the 1988 Legend Coupe located under the drivers dash to the left of the steering column???

Thanks, James;)

yes, it also has reddish colored guts and an 8(?) pin connector.
2x3.5x1in. thick redish brown colored box with 8 pin conector? Is this the main relay? The reason why I ask is that I took it out and tried to start the engine and it started. If this was the main relay shouldn't the engine NOT START with it disconnected?

main relay

James,
You may have disconnected the interlock control unit instead (if so, you will know if you can't shift out of park with an A/T without it connected and with the engine running). On my '90, the two relays are located 90 degrees to one another.

Look at the color of the wires in the harness to tell if you got the right one. It may be different on your '88, but the wiring on mine is yel/blk, blk/yel x 2, blk/wht, grn/blk, and blk. Check your manual to be certain of the wire colors.

good luck
