Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
the car keeps dying because of it and i know the alternator is fine
Here's an easy way to identify the part.
The black boxes in your fuse box are the relays. To remove them, you just pull them out. I would try and listen and see which relay is clicking. If need be, get a rod or something to help pinpoint which one (put one end of rod on relay and other near ear - kind of like a stethoscope).
Edit: Added relay test information/images from manual.
thanks for the help with that diagram soon as it stops raining im gonna go check the stuff out
I would try and determine which relay might be bad before I just started pulling them out. I don't know if it'd have any adverse effects if you just started pulling.
No it's not. I'd run a 30 amp fuse in there.
I looked in CAPS but didn't see the relays listed. If you find you need one, let me know as I have some lying around if you can't find any locally.
i pulled every black fuse out whil the car was running, and it still was popping, so then i noticed it was making only my fan come on and off so, i unplugged the fan and plugged it back in and i sat there for 5 min and heard no clicking, so think im in the clear?
Any more sparking? I would definitely keep an eye out for it. Also make sure all of the other fuses (non-relays) are good in your fuse box. Then just keep checking it out, listening, and watching every so often to make sure it doesn't come back.
