Random relay with wired under steering wheel fuse panel?

So ive been trying to figure this out. There is this random relay in my interior fuse panel with about 4 wires going to the relay and 2 others, one to ground, and one to a 10fuse.

Heres are some images but does anyone think they might know what this relay is? it doesn't go anywhere?

Sorry for the blurry picture, was kinda in a hurry=/

Wow, what a mess I hate to see those blue, square, tap-a-lines below too...

The Green wire, that goes off to the right, behind the cup holder, where does IT go?

And could this be a replacement for, what looks like it could be, a relay Base that those wires are soldered too? Look in your Owners Manual, what does it say belongs in that position?

oh those blue things are something i did ha, im still cleaning it up.

The green wire goes to a ground screw. The yellow and green go to that relay thing and the brown one was soldered to a 10amp fuse.

Its a ford relay. but i have no idea what its for. Also i was messing with the fuses last night and that relay, had unplugged the fuse were the brown was soldered to, well now my truck wont start, lights come on, has power, but no cranking.

And i cant find my owners Manuel=( no idea were i put it

Looks to me that the pink and yellow go where the relay should be and its pulling power from the fuse. I think they lost power to that relay and rigged it in there. You would have to find out if a relay is suppose to be there and what its for

Go d/l an Owners Manual for your truck -> https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenan...ls/default.asp and see what that relay is for.

I completely forgot i have a Chilton manual on my desk at home, ill look at it tonight and see if i cant find out what it is used for!

And I'm assuming if it had lost power then they may be a bad wire in the back on the fuse box.

Ill look tonight

That's not factory wiring. Who cares if it's a Ford relay. You need to trace where it goes to find out what it is for.

I knwo its not factory wiring From what it looks like is that it used for a factory setting due to the fact of wires coming out of the back of the fuse box from that location. Just seems like maybe one of the wires got burnt or something, idk havent looked that far. i just need to know what the relay 306 is used for
