Relays

Interrogative: One of my relays is draining my battery. When I disconnect the battery there is a noticeable click of the relay working, so it's somehow constantly has power. Is it possible that the relay failed or should I search out a short? By the, I have no clue what the relay goes to and am still trying to isolate it (it's on my Series 1).

I'd pull the relay and test it. More than likely there's a short somewhere, but testing the relay is the first step.
While it's out you can see what doesn't work that it controls. Of course it's possible whatever it it was installed to control has been removed and you've no need for the relay.

Relay is good. I traced it to a hack job interior light shorting somewhere. Damn Argeninians.
