Question about RTO 10-amp Relay Wall Switch

1 Answer

Relay light switch won't stay turned on

We have two relay light switches that are used on the same lights in our kitchen. They turn on if we keep our fingers pressed on them, but as soon as we let go they automatically dim right back off. I just recently switched out a light bulb to a different fixture in the same room. Could that be part of the problem?

I have a 92 sentra lights come on but when i turn key nothing happens. Starter good ,relay good, head lights don't dim when you turn key . Car won't turn over at all


If by lights, you mean the dash lights come on, then ignition switch must be getting power. If dash is not working with key on, check the 30 amp fuse link which powers the ignition switch.
If switch is good and starter is good, the start wire from switch goes to, if automatic, to inhibitor relay (the park/neutral function) and then to starter. There is also an inhibitor switch on the shifter or on the transaxle that turns on the inhibitor relay when key is on and shifter in park or neutral. The inhibitor switch is powered by a 10 amp fuse D.
If you have a manual transmission, the start wire from ignition switch goes to the clutch interlock relay and then to the starter. This relay is turned on by the clutch interlock switch on the clutch pedal.
You can check for power on either relay, the inhibitor relay or the clutch interlock relay, with a test light. Pull the relay out, have the key held in start position. Now both relays would have power showing on two terminals where the relay plugs in. If inhibitor relay only has power on one terminal or no power at all, either ignition switch is not sending power or fuse D is out or the inhibitor switch is not working right. If clutch interlock switch does not have power on two terminals either the ignition switch is not sending power or the clutch interlock switch is bad.
If the relay checks are good, check for power on the small wire to starter with key held in start. If you have power there, the starter solenoid must be out.

I wired my fog lights for the power into the fuse box, but they stay on all the time when I turn on the car. I have them wired into my low beams, but I only want them to come on when I turn on my low...


OK, you need to connect a relay to one of the 'power' wires under the hood that leads to the bulb of the low beams. Then, the fog lights will go on only when they are turned on or off.

Otherwise, you could have a relay that is controlled by a switch that independently operates the relay and thus the fog lights.

Both methods are legal in, Pennsylvania, anyway.

Sometimes hooking up the relay to the fuse box will only turn the fog lights on if the ignition switch is turned on for switched fuse box contacts. And, sometimes, hooking the relay to the fuse box will keep the fog lights on all of the time, as the fuse box may be energized at all times at certain contacts.

Good luck on installing your fog lights, correctly.

If the switch keeps melting, the heavy draw is down steam, not up steam.
The most likely is too bright of bulbs in the brake light sockets in back.
You can replace them with LED bulbs for only a little bit more, and it would probably stop the problem. But if not, you could install a relay. The switch would turn the relay on and off, and the relay would turn the bulbs on and off. Not hard to do.

find the lighting relay, if the dash lights don't go off with the switch then the relay could be stuck, when you find it turn the lighting switch on and off to try to hear the relay clicking, if no clicking the relay is probably stuck, give it a couple of taps before you go buying a new one.

Fog lights staying on


1st most newer car cars have a timer delay that helps light the area you are in for a couple of seconds. You may have had the knob turned all the way up on the turn signal switch. The same thing will happened if this switch is turned all the way up, the interrior light will stay on. Turn the lights on with the switch and see if the fog lights come on, do this without the car running.Trun the lights off,see if the fog lights stay on then go out after a while.if so you have a delay on the fog lights or relay. You may need to replace the relay only. Part $ 15 trace fog light wiring to relay usually under hood away from water sources.......runjoe

Oven light won't turn off


It sounds to me like the switch that operates the light is malfunctioning. You're taking the right steps by pressing the switch by hand. Since that didn't work, either that switch is not working or there is another switch that is intended to keep the light on while the door is closed. You can look at that one too. The last thing to consider is if the light is relay controlled, the relay might be stuck closed and applying power to the light all the time.

Problem with oven


In order for the element to stay on when the control is turned off either the control has shorted or the contact that the control switch controls has shorted, if the the light goes off as usual it is most likely the contacts in the elements relay that have welded themselves in the closed position but both the switch and relay will need to be tested.
