That darn little black box is for the auto trans, or is there a can-style relay up there too So, can I cut it outsince my car is no longer an auto? Cuz that thing is always giving me trouble when I have to put the radio back in.

Edit: Forgot you said EA81, so my question is probably irrelevant. Sorry 'bout that.

Yeah, I just posted another!

What book did you get the kickdown answer from? I have seen this relay in cars with both auto and manual transmissions. I know that doesn't rule it out, just sayin...
