    I was looking around in the fuse box and touched this *relay??? And it was hot to the touch with the ignition off. I disconnected the battery

    Its the one with the blue stripe. IN 0033 15417401432852491391056853431025.jpg 15417402293604827400974503423564.jpg

    appears to be interior light relay
    if you have had doors open, ignition on acc for long time could account for getting hot
    dont know what year your decal is from though
    try seeing what works and doesnt work with relay removed

    Heat is normally high resistance dirty terminals or the contacts in the relay

    yep, i am suspecting it may be the wrong relay or just plain worn out
    but would like to confirm what relay it is supposed to be

    Im trying to figure out why this relay even exists, the light works fine if i just bypass the relay, drawing no current when off

    The relay is on no matter what. Constant to battery.
