take a multimeter and check if your getting power to the relay and from it (when its supposed to be on). if no power to relay its the switch that activates relay or the wiring, if no power from relay when its supposed to be working, bad relay.

How do tell if the horn relay is bad or if the horn button is bad


Relays fail quite often and are easy to replace, while the button seldom fails and is much harder to repair. Start with fuses and relay.

How can I tell if the F/BLW Relay is bad?


Many of the relays in a car are exactly the same. Look for a similar one and swap the two, that will tell you if its good or bad.

How do you tell if the auto shutdown relay is bad


Any relay can be tested to some degree, but to be certain, just buy an inexpensive relay and try it in there,
The Automatic Shut Down relay is just one of many relays on your car. It takes battery power from the battery, and when activated by the computer, will pass that power on to the fuel injectors and to the ignition coil, some applications also it will work on the fuel pump. If the ASD relay is bad, no injector pulse, no power to coil, etc.-car won't start. When key is turned to off, the relay is not active-I think that may be why it's called auto shutdown relay.

I have been having some problems with my headlights not running properly. The automatic headlights don't go on automatically anymore and now when I try to turn on the lights manually that doesn't always...


there is a relay under the hood in the fuse/relay panel called drl, or daytime running lamps, that relay is most likely bad, a good way to tell is switch it with the high beam relay, if they come on you know thats it, if they dont, its the relay for the lowbeams, again switch it with the high beam relay and see.. either way i can tell you for sure one of those two are bad... but most of the time it is the daytime running lamps, or sometimes called driving lights relay. hope this helps you

How can you tell when a fuse relay is bad?


what i normally do to check if a fuse relay is bad is check the power going to the relay itself. if you have power in the right places then the relay is probably bad. or if you look at the other relays, their are normally ones that are the same as the one you pulled out. so you can switch them and see if the problem continues

Ac compressor wont kick on when running air Full of refrigerate to! jumper wire to compressor and ran! What is it Ac relay or wiring?


It could be the fuse, climate control, switch, or relay.
If you check at the switch, that will also tell you if the fuse might be bad.
Then if you check at the relay, that will tell you if the climate control is bad.
