GL-10 Accessory Relay Location????
Posted 24 November 2012 - 09:56 PM
Hmmm. A mystery!
I was thinking that the ignition switch might be the problem. But no. When I got home, I disconnected it, and the stereo still stayed on. OK. I was thinking the relay for the accessory circuit was right on the inner dash in the driver side. Pulled the two molex connectors from them... And the radio was still on. Pulling the radio fuse finally shut it down.
Since the windscreen wipers also were suddenly working sans key, I'm thinking that the accessory relay is stuck in the closed position. If someone could be so kind as to pointing out the location of the beast, I would be most grateful.

I'm looking at the fuse panel right now, but I don't see anything wrong there. Now that I'm deeper into the diagnostic, I have found there are four relays right under the dash. Unplugging all of those does not solve this problem.

Of course, now, all of a sudden.... Everything is working properly. Go figure.

The only thing that I can think of that happened is the fan (I assume you mean the blower and not the cooling fan) is back feeding voltage to the other circuits from another source of power. I could see that happening if it is the cooling fan circuit since it is hot at all times and doesn't pass through the ignition switch.
Looking at the data again it shows that power to the blower relay for the blower is hot at all times also. So a bridged connection there could have caused the trouble.

Except, it can't be the relay if one of those is one of the four i already unplugged. Interestingly enough, when I have the blower fuse pulled, the blower still works when the key is switched to ACC mode. Wonder if it will work if I also pull the stereo fuse?
Will do more diagnostic tomorrow.
