I have a 2003 Galaxy Trend 105 diesel, with the same intermittent problemes of starting first, now never starts. I reached the level 3 fuse, but I can find no relay 30 ! only 100, 103, 109 and a green 30A fuse ( made in Dominican Republic). Can you help me, what should replace ?
Thanks a lot. Thierry,France

Took the old relay apart and it had a poor joint, didn't look like it ever had enough solder on. Poor manufacturing as usual.

form the begiining.
i was driving on motorway and then power went. everything stopped and got it to side of road. Tried starting it and it turned over nicely but no firing up. The aa came out and kept trying and they found there was no power to the fuel pump switch (ineartha). towed it to a ford dealers in bishops stortford and they had it for 18 days. They removed the aftermarket alarm and checked the relays. the car now doesn't even turn over but this could be the battery cos nothing works in the car now. After 18 days they wanted to charge me Â£1800 for diagnosis fee. told them to swivel as they hadnt diagnosed it. got the car back home and searched online. Relay 30 kept coming up so i ordered one and replaced it. charged the battery up after it being dead for 2 monthes. The fuel pump now makes a sound but still not turning over. Theres power to the starter motor and i gave the coil a little knock but still nothing.
Tried jump starting and no turning over. Tried bump starting and nothing again. Ford left all the fuse box hanging down so i can get to all the relays. checked them all, all the fuses are fine. checked cables, fine. Had a look at the ignition barrel and it seems it has been changed. as turn the key one click, two click and then third click makes a spark sound.
I.m literally at a loose end and really don't want to get rid of the car as its not worth much scrap and its the first car i really enjoy driving. Please any advice or help would be greatly apprteciated. Thank you and look forward to the replies

Thanks to mickdon from me.
Today I did get my 1999 galaxy 2.3 which did run fine the 1st few miles (30 miles) but after parking the car at a store, it did not wanted to start.
someone passing by told me it was the cam / rail sesor or something, and that after cooling-off for 2 hours it most of the time works again. I did find this also as common issue, but the blinking led in my door pointed to the relay 30.
so I tried to find that, but did not know how to access it (I have no manual nothing with the car, so if someone knows where to find the documentation of my 1999 2.3 ghia X..) with the images posted by Mickdon I was able to see how to reach the relays, and opened the relay. i notices a loose contact. and tried the relay without its case, and by moving it a little i could start again, sadly when releasing it stopped again. but at least i know it could work.
I was in front of a Range store do did buy a soldering iron and solder. but was not allowed to use it in store (health and safety rules), and also a restaurant nearby had the same reason of not being able help me.
luckily i was able to hind a residential home who let me in en use their energy to power my soldering iron.
I did solder the loose contact. and went back to the car.
now everything back to its place (also not that easy) but we where able to drive home
cooling off time of the car 3 hours, which did not work. accessing and fixing the relay 1 hour so 4 hours after being stranded with 3 children (age 3,4 and 6) and a 35 weeks pregnant wife. we could continue our trip to home.
Thanks Forum, Thanks mickdon

mainly making sure we got enough candy and some toys from the store we where in front off.
And the oldest (almost 7) will learn how to solder in not to long,
I am doing a training with him for HAM radio licence, and also include some real electronics (not needed for the 1st level, but always nice to do)
and further just ignore the complaining ;-)
(now up to the next points. non working left rear door locking(electronicly) and the right rear door window not opening/closing)
