Relay I.D.

Hey Folks

I think I have a bad blower motor relay. Ive read that if they go bad your fan can run until the battery dies.
I found relays in my 87 brougham......however the symbols on the cover tell me nothing. I think I can figure out a few , but, Im looking for some confirmation. There is one with a square and some wind symbols.....(I think thats my blower), and one looks like an anteni, and another that looks like a christmastree light with a circle around it........

I dont have the owners manual.......Just a Haynes manual

Any help would be appreciated

I doubt that 87 has a fan relay. I'm not 100% sure as I don't own one. But my 85 Eldo has an electronic fan module. If that shorts out, the fan never stops running (so it kills the battery).

Mine is mounted in the air box (on the engine side of the firewall). It has a thick wire going to the fan motor (that is a dead givaway). Yours might be similar.

Thanks Peteski.......I will check that out.
