I have a '99 Ford Taurus Sedan with the 3.0 vulcan V6 engine that we can't seem to find the CCRM for. A friend of the mechanic we know at the local Ford Dealership said that it's behind the driver-side headlight, we looked, but no luck. We looked by the battery and though there's a black box there, it doesn't look like the CCRM at all. The box there looked like a box of some fuses and a handful of little black cubes (little relays? I don't really know), The replacement CCRM looks kinda like a black metal box sort of like this, but not exactly the same of course .



Is there any way it could be somewhere else? Do I need to remove the front-end of the car? The dashboard?

If it's not in a normal place... could someone repairing it before I owned it have replaced it, but put it in a different spot?

I'm not certain where it is on a '99, but on a '91 it is located under the radiator/fan shroud.

So.. the parts store ripped us off.
Hmm.

Ah well, thanks for helping me out.

98+ have that black box next to the battery that pretty much does all the functions of the CCRM.

I just happened to be at the pick a part today and found a 99 sitting there.
Right where the CCRM should be was a different module.
I took the cover off. Basically, it was a carrier for individual relays.
So, you could change a relay rather than change the module.
