Default Where is the power door lock relay located?

2000 Ranger XLT Sport and am trying to find out where the PDL relay is located. Both doors started doing same thing, same day, all at once. Have read 1st thing to try is to exchange the relay. Can someone help and tell me where this little black box resides?

There is a "driver door unlock" relay, an "all lock" relay and an "all unlock" relay. All three are inside a black relay box up under the dash to the right of the steering column.

Only thing between the steering column and the accelerator is black firewall, do not see any black box. Course @ 80 years old, can't get really UP underneath. The relay I speaking of is totally enclosed one piece, pull and replace, and has 5 blade connector.

The relays are 5-blade and are inside the box under a cover. Every box I've seen has been black but it is conceivable that Ford used a different color for some years. It is to the right side of column, straight up. I don't remember for sure but it may be necessary to pull the plastic knee bolster cover and then the steel knee bolster to get to the box.

The diagram below shows the shape of the relay box without its cover in place. The size of the complete box is roughly 2" x 2" x 6".

Thank you so much for the info. Will have to get a young friend to get up underneath the dash and go from there. Without your help, would have never even thought to look in this location.

i have the same issue but i have a 2004 ranger. the relays seem to be located in the passenger kick panel fuse box though on my ranger. Are these removable on a 2004? They too were under a cover but do not want to pull out. Driver door will not unlock but will lock. Passenger side fully operational.
