You must have quoted the wrong part. Can anyone pull the 8-digit part number off their relay? John, do you still have the old one?

This part should be about $10 canadian

can you post a pic??? I think that you are confising the lockout swich with the compressor switch....although 97 SLE'* were availabe with the CCR as an option
No I know I have the lockout switch, but there is a compressor switch also. I can post a picture tomorrow if you guys don't believe me
does your car have the CCR buttons next to ths shifter that say Perfromance ride and Touring ride?
Yes. I have Performance ride, touring ride, and traction control.

Sorry to ressurect this thread. I abandoned the ELC thing for a while, but am now taking another crack at making it work (must be a January thing...).

In the posts above (or maybe it was via PM) I was told to replace the 'third relay from the right' as part of the troubleshooting steps with respect to ELC. Which is the third relay from the right? A or B in my little picture below? And, how do I get the damned relay out? I am certian I am doing something wrong--where are the 'clips'?

Thank you in advance.

Not sure which relay you want..

To remove them use a small screwdriver or pick and gently slide between the relay and mounting tab. See that empty space in your picture..that'* the mounting tab that each relay sits on.

This is the relay that I am looking for. Driverjohn had sent me a PM saying that it is 'the third relay from the right', but I am confused as to whether or not it'* "drivers right" or "looking at it head-on" right.

Thanks for the tip re: removing the relay. I will go and figure it out.

It should be the 4th from the left, according to the FSM. You, however have a gap in that spot, much like I do. Which could mean yours was wired like mine in the Buick/Olds spot. Behind the glove box, relay position 3 (I can't remember if it'* 3rd from the top on the right side or third from the bottom at the moment). Our FSM says this spot should be for the fog lights, but I pulled it and my fog lights still worked. I checked for continuity and found this spot to be wired to the ELC fuse.

Also check the fuses under the black cover to the right in your pic that says FUSES upside down (why are they always upside down? I turned mine the right way and it still fits.) and has no tape on it. One will be labeled ELC.
