Yes I can see that the two flat maze looking things are burnt through
and I have no idea how to get new ones. I am not a electronic guru but
I dont think these heat dissapating? looking deals are very common.
Probably why a new relay is 200 bucks. I can live with the dash light
for now. Next month I will get a new one then I am set. Nothing but
cosmetics for the good old car...
ouch, pitter and burnt is ok you can clean it up with sandpaper but
burnt right through is not good. it means there was an ecessive load
someplace - not enough to bugger a fuse but enough to burn a relay.
i'd go with a used oe frankly, given you now how to visially check one
now you ought to be able to get one for $20 or so.

Wow this board is it! With a good used box I got cheap I was able to
track down I was able to see the burnt bulb light come on slowly. Sure
enough two bulbs dont offer enough resistance and slowly show up as
burnt out. Put 2 better bulbs in there and wala! no more light.
Thanks for all the help!

light and headlight relay to short. Now its the way it should be from
