ELC relay? FIXED!!!
 
My FSM says it is under the right hand underhood fuse block. Then the picture has seven relay positions labeled, and the eighth is blank. 4th from the left?

I've got nothing there, not even an empty connector for one.

hrmmm....that is the factory location for the Relay according to the 93 FSM....just another fact that the 92's are different than the 93's

Check the relay center under passanger side of the dash. Look for relay "E".

is that for a 92????

cause John called out the under HOOD fuse block

Hotz28, that's incorrect. The relay is in the maxifuse relay center under the hood. Not in that diagram you posted. I know this from not only my 93, but also from Driverjohn's 92, which I replace the relay on last winter.

HotZ28 12-21-2006 11:54 PM

Sorry, I was simply suggesting, that if it was not in the relay center under the hood, then you should “Check the relay center under the passenger side dash”!

Well, the relay diagram isn't right. But mine is in the relay center he is thinking of. MY FSM calls relay 3 above the passenger's foot as ELC for Buick and Olds and Fog lights for Pontiac. So I dug into that one. I've got voltage at pin 1 to ground, but not pin 5 to ground. Pin 1 and 5 both go to fuse 12 above the driver's foot and split somewhere between that fuse panel and the relay center. I've got continuity from the fuse to pin 1, and not from the fuse to 5. So I guess I need to find the break in the wire somewhere under the dash. :evil:

So I know this relay 3 that is supposed to be for the fog lights is wired to the ELC fuse. Does that make my car a LeSabre SSE or a 88 SSE?
