I believe it's one of the ones over on the passenger side strut tower.

Do you mean the W.O.T. Cutoff Relay? If yes, it on the front side of the passenger side strut tower.

There is one slightly under the right side of the dash. I was not able to find out the color of it. I think it is brown. I'm failing at finding this at the moment and was not able to dig into my shop manual last night.

I have a meeting to go to tonight, but will try and look up the info for you then.

This is another relay besides the WOT and LPCS.

A/C Time Delay and WOT Cutout Switch

2.3L or 5.0L Engine

5.0L engines are equipped with a wide open throttle (WOT) cutout switch to prevent compressor operation during wide open throttle operation. The WOT cutout switch is connected in series with the A/C time delay relay and de-energizes the relay to stop compressor operation when the switch opens. The compressor will not operate as long as the WOT cutout switch is open. When the WOT cutout switch closes, the time delay relay continues to prevent compressor operation for 5 seconds before allowing the compressor to return to normal operation. The 5.0L WOT relay is located on the RH fender apron forward of the shock tower.

The A/C time delay relay is located under the instrument panel to the left of the steering column and is an integral part of the cooling fan controller used on all 2.3L engines.

Reference - FPS-12101-87B

Cooling fan controller located under instrument panel between steering column and "A" pillar. It appears to contain 8 wires on a flat connector.

Best I could do for ya. Good luck.
