Default '86 Ranger, 2.3, Gas, EFI, where is my EEC-IV Located???

CAN ANYONE TELL ME PLEASE....EXACTLY WHERE THE EEC-IV IS?

1986 2.3 FORD RANGER Gas / EFI / 140 CID
4-Cyl. / 5-Speed / SOHC / base Cab.
_______________________________

I swear by Motorcraft electrical parts and have been using them for the life of this truck (original owner) in the past, I have bought TFI modules from Ford for less than $75.00. Today, I called my local ford parts and now they want $198.65, whereas Autozone for $46.99. 26 years for a truck that's seen better days, bad valves and pistons, 155,000 miles, sorry, it's autozone for me. It would be so great if it was the TFI, but I also want to test the EEC-IV, the component to the TFI.

I want to remove, and take my Distributor Coil, TFI (Ignition control module) and my EEC-IV (Electronic Engine control) part to autozone to test.

Having a 1986, I have personally replaced about four TFI's on this truck. They are infamous for rangers to fail from time too time.

I recently replaced my fuel filter, but not my in-line pump, I feel I'm getting fuel to the injectors, but it cranks, but does not turn over, which leads me to believe this could be a spark issue. Spark plugs and wires are fine. I have not tested my fuel pressure yet.

My search for the location of this EECV-IV is confusing. Yes, I do have the fuel pump relay, the blower fan relay, and the ECC (or EEC) relays on passengers' side fender well, in the same area.

Some say the EEC-IV is in the inside cab, middle, under the dash. Well, I looked and I did see a little box with wires going to it attached to the dash metal frame, but this is not what I believe to be looking for, which is a little bigger. Others say it's in the very right passengerís sidekick wall, behind the plastic cover.

SO PLEASE....CAN ANYONE TELL ME EXACTLY WHERE THE EEC-IV IS?

Thank You !

I just got back from getting my TFI Module tested, and it was BAD! So hopefully, this was my main problem all along, or at least it contributed to it.

I was going to also check my EEC-IV, but knowing the TFI, is bad, I'll try to work it with a new one and see what happens. :-)

Yes, I found that EEC-IV behind the corner plastic cover right side pass. kick wall.



Thanks for the help.
