Relays

The headlamp (or security) relay is located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.

The horn relay is located in the Junction Block (JB), on the left end of the instrument panel in the passenger compartment. The driver unlock relay is located in the relay and fuse block on the back of the JB underneath the left end of the instrument panel in the passenger compartment. Each of these relays can be tested as described in the following procedure, however the circuits they are used in do vary.

To test the relay circuits, refer to the circuit descriptions and diagrams in 8W-39 - Vehicle Theft Security System and 8W-61 - Power Locks in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, REFER TO GROUP 8M - PASSIVE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

Remove the relay (Fig. 3) from the PDC, JB or the relay and fuse block as described in this group to perform the following tests: (1) A relay in the de-energized position should have continuity between terminals 87A and 30, and no continuity between terminals 87 and 30. If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, replace the faulty relay.

(2) Resistance between terminals 85 and 86 (electromagnet) should be 75 6 5 ohms. If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, replace the faulty relay.

(3) Connect a battery to terminals 85 and 86.

There should now be continuity between terminals 30 and 87, and no continuity between terminals 87A and 30. If OK, test the relay circuits. If not OK, replace the faulty relay.
