Or if all else fails, I just put in a wire between pin 1 and 5.

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?
I think it only confirms that it is a GM product!

Yea, it is for a LeSabre or Olds 88 and could apply here, however the relays and fuses could be in different places. As you know, GM does not standardize anything between the different makes.

Please move to electrical.

John, when you are looking in the book, please ensure you are looking at the diagram/page for the B'ville. As mentioned due to different configurations and engines very frequently things can be placed differently on the same body platform.

Please don't post information in a topic like this that isn't specific to the Bonneville. Alot of time and in some cases hard-earned money can be wasted.

It'* a Bonneville factory FSM. It just randomly points out that this particular relay should be used as something else in a Buick or Olds. If it didn't, I wouldn''t have known where to look.

Sounds like some good detective work.

Your manual covers only the B'ville? Not the entire H platform?
