Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota
Are these the same thing or differant
A selector switch is what you use to turn on or off a circuit such as the lights or wipers. A relay switch is used by a circuit that has a large current draw and a relay uses a small source of current to control a large usage of current. Most fog lights use a relay to control the fog lights. You turn the fog light switch on (that is a selector switch) and the current from that circuit then activates a relay switch to let the larger current draw that the fog lights use go to the fog lights and you have light. A relay also controls if the fog lights are on when the bright lights are on. (on most cars if you turn the bright headlights on the fog lights will go out until you go back to the regular lights)
Hope that helps.
