I'll have to take a better look, I guess. There is a hole underneath where I can look up, but I don't see it. I might have to get in there and get a closer look.
One other question, is the DRL module and plug universal among all the Fords? I know that when the DRL module is unplugged, you need to plug in a jumper cap to get the lights working. What I'm wondering, is if the jumper cap that's in my 1999 Ford Explorer will fit the harness in the Taurus, and if the DRL module will work in an Explorer? I seem to think that it's probably different but I have come across some parts that can be used in a wide range of models, so it's not totally out there, I guess.
There is no DRL module on your car. The DRL's are controlled by the SJB or Smart Junction Box, which is a fancy name for the fuse panel inside the car. I guess ford calls it that cuz is has more functions built into it, like controlling the DRL's. From the service manual:
Principles of Operation
The DRL are controlled by the smart junction box (SJ. It operates the low beam headlamps at a reduced intensity. The DRL driver (integral to the SJ supplies pulse-width modulated (PWM) voltage, approximately 75% - 92% of battery voltage, to the low beam headlamps when the following conditions are met:
the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
the high beam headlamps are not illuminated.
the parking brake is not engaged.
