we call them junk yards, only the irony is they come off the assembly line junk and are only put out of everyone's misery by the inevitable crusherIt's a very common automotive relay plug. Go to your closest wreckers (I think you call them dismantlers or breakers) and ask if they can snip one off a dead harness. Then just pull the pins and push in.
Not sure if this will help but I recently replaced 3 relays on my 2012 848 EVO. I remember seeing brown wires going into one but don't remember what it went to. But the relays were for the radiator fans, push start button and fuel pump.What's this relay? ST4S harness, 4 brown wires.
Thanks Jay. I'm hoping for a stock-matching one, but that will definitely work if I can't find the original style.Here ya go Adam... I think this is the one. If you look close you can select between the plug and the socket... that page appears to default to the plug, at least for me.
The relays were no problem to find. I ordered a couple of them right away. It's the block/plug and spades I couldn't find.I believe all the ST4s relays are the same, so I tend to purchase them by the half dozen through Pyro Dan. I've used these relays in several places on the ST4s and they work well. Always carry one with me, in case I need to replace at an awkward time.
I know it isn't the tail light or flashers, as that was easy to check. I was too lazy to put the tank back on and keep going through the checklist though. I see a bit of corrosion on the spades of the block.Leave it undone and see what doesn't work. I suspect it carries a fair amount of current, headlight? ignition? fuel pump? Heat is created by high resistance so check the ground side of whichever circuit the relay controls. Also check the fit of the spades in the socket, could be the cause of the high resistance.
Not familiar with ST4 but it looks like the fan relay on my 916 - I would guess they used common parts on many models, especially electrical parts.
