FI Relays
telford dorr
This entry compares FI relays for 1979 and 1978/before buses. There's not as much difference as you would think. By adding one wire th the connector, a 1979 relay will work in earlier applications.

Testing the FI Double Relay

Testing the FI Double Relay
telford dorr
This is probably overkill for most people, but if you deal with double relays a lot, here's a circuit for quickly testing them. You need some push buttons and some small 12 volt lamps. Wire as shown.

Pressing any section 'A' button should illuminate all section 'A' lamps. Pressing any section 'B' button should illuminate all section 'B' lamps.

You can also use a single test light and some jumpers to quick-test the relay. Connect the test lamp at one of the indicated lamp positions. Use a jumper wire in place of one of the push buttons. The relay should respond as described above.

This drawing updated to include both 11 and 13 pin versions of the relay.

Note: this method does not test the diodes in series with each relay coil. You need an ohmmeter for that.

9-pin Relay Repair (The easy way)

9-pin Relay Repair (The easy way)
telford dorr
There's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say. Same for getting your 9-pin relay to work right. Sometimes, the relay contacts for the 4-way flasher function crud up and stop working (like, how many times do you use the 4-way flasher function, anyhow?) The normal fix is to disassemble the relay and file/and things clean). But, I discovered, you can do it mechanically, by operating the relay twice a second, for about 1/2 an hour (that's 3600 operations). Good 'ol mechanical wear does the dirty work. Pics show the setup I used to do this.

Fix For Missing Headlight Switch Terminal 57

It's not uncommon to have a replacement headlight switch be missing terminal 57 (the connection for the green dash indicator). Here's a workaround using a standard Bosch cube relay.
