Injectors get their power from the main relay and get their ground signal from the computer. The power to the injector wire is BK/W , The input power wires to the relay are blue. Jump these two wires to bypass the relay. The blue wire gets it's power from the EGI fuse in the engine compartment fuse box. If fuse is ok, jump a 12 volt source wire to terminal on relay to repair problem.
Capri main relay
This Mercury Capri main engine control relay is located under/behind the LH headlight (bucket) and interfaces with the PCM/ECU. this is a double relay.... one set of contacts according to the wiring diagram. runs just the injectors.. the other set run a bunch of other devices on the motor.
According to the manual the STO (self test output) of the ecu/pcm....when tested...is supposed to read STO low or 0 volts and if anything would be wrong the needle on an analog V ohm meter will sweep back and forth from low to 12 volts to spell out the
code for the problem. When it stays at 12v would that indicate that the PCM is bad?? Check the main relay that is located behind the drivers side headlight can but to do so remove the coolant overflow bottle. In the process of testing, check for corrosion on the blue wire that goes into the green three wire connector.repair any brakes in the wires

The axle must be removed in a sharp snapping motion and it must be pulled straight out, use a large pipe wrench and quickly snap it back while holding the axle shaft straight out, they do get stuck but it will come out believe me.. The heavier the weighted objects you use to slide along the shaft to snap it out the better, I have a huge Crescent adjustable open end wrench (about 6 pounds) that I use. The only thing that holds the axle in is a round internal snap ring that sits in the groove inside the transmission case.

This applies to all 1991 to 1994 Capri

1. Raise headlamps to the normal operating position and open hood.
2. Remove the windshield washer reservoir or coolant reservoir, depending on which headlamp
assembly requires servicing.
3. Remove bezel and headlamp. Route wiring away from headlamp assembly.
4. Remove four screws and cover from headlamp assembly.
5. Remove four bolts retaining headlamp assembly to body.
6. Unplug connector from motor and remove headlamp assembly.
7. Remove nut retaining linkage to motor.
8. Remove three retaining bolts and motor.

If you have another motor, you can install it now and assemble in the reverse order. Make sure that when you put the linkage back on that it has the headlight in the raised position like before.

Your motor may not be bad just because it doesn't come up. If you take the 5 or so screws off the motor assembly, you'll see were some copper wipers make contact to a circular gear. Where they make contact could simply be dirty. Clean the gear with light sandpaper to get the copper on the gear shiny, then put it back together. You can test the motor now by plugging it back in and operate the headlights...it may just work correctly...

The idle is not adjustable. It is controlled by the ECM. If it is causing a problem I would suggest having a diagnosis on it.

If it's "dumping" fuel into the engine, the computer has it cold start mode. Stay off the throttle pedal when try to start after a good while to allow fuel to clear. If it won't start then, you've a fuel regulation problem on cold start. But do wait a good while for fuel to clear fron engine, then try to start without touching the throttle. It's meant to be this way.

Go to garage and get your alternator done.. or there might be a faulty connection that drains your charge more rapidly then it recharged..

kimberley, your car needs a tune up including sparks plug. When was the last tune up? Long time eh!

check the firing order of the plug leads as they may have become crossed during the plug change. Check that the coil wire is firmly in the distributer cap.

It's best to relate symptoms to narrow things down. I assume you are still getting a dead battery when trying to start even after replacing the alternator and battery.
Get a volt meter. Harbor freight sells them ridiculously cheap (about $5). Measure the voltage at the battery terminals when the engine is running. If it is at least 13.5 volts to 15 volts then the alternator is charging correctly. If it is 12 volts then the alternator is not charging the battery.

If the alternator checks out ok, then check for things that could be draining the battery when the car is off. Usual suspect is the trunk light. Put your cell phone on video record into the trunk facing the light, then shut the trunk. If the light stays on, its because the switch in the latch mechanism is faulty. WD40 might make it work, or just pull the bulb. Also, check the glove box light the same way. Good luck...Chris

Usually the cable gets messed up when it becomes detached from the glass raising mechanism. If the cable is messed up, then new cables are needed, probably a new pulley also, which they don't make anymore. Best bet is buy a used regulator assembly from a junk yard or ebay. Replacing it yourself is a little tedious, but can be done by the do-it-yourselfer. Techcapri.com has manuals to reference for replacement procedure. Good luck, Chris
