Disconnect battery and put a bulb between the battery post and the disconnected lead, if a drain is there the bulb should light up. Then methodicly remove and replace each fuse one at a time, if the light goes out, that will indicate the circuit the drain is on. Good Luck

Where is the radiator drain plug on a 1998 ford contour?

by Tigercadd:The drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator, passenger side facing the engine compartment. Im not a Big mechanic or anything but i know a few basics, not every car has a drain plug for the radiator, if it does, it will be on the bottom of the rad. if it doesnt a simple way to drain the coolant would be to disconect the bottom rad hose and let the coolant drain through thatI have looked at the manual and from what I can remember, on the Ford Contour, you have to remove the plastic splashboard underneath the front part of the car before you can see the radiator drain plug on a 1998 Ford Contour. I have not actually changed the radiator fluid on my Contour but I know you will have to remove the bolts that hold the splashboard on and remove the splashboard before you can see the radiator drainplug.
