The is located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment. The is a International Standards Organization (ISO) micro-relay. The cannot be repaired or adjusted and, if faulty or damaged, it must be replaced.

The movable (common feed) relay contact is held against one of the fixed contacts (normally closed) by spring pressure. When the electromagnetic coil is energized, it draws the movable contact away from the normally closed fixed contact, and holds it against the other (normally open) fixed contact. When the electromagnetic coil is de-energized, spring pressure returns the movable contact to the normally closed position. The resistor or diode is connected in parallel with the electromagnetic coil in the relay, and helps to dissipate voltage spikes that are produced when the coil is de-energized.
