HiCustomer the comfort relay is located in the relay panel under the left side of the dash. I've attached some diagrams below.

Do I find the relay panel under the kick panel beneath the stering wheel or do I have to take off the top of the dashboard?
No you will find it from underneath the dash.

so your saying I have to take of the top of the dashboard?
Sorry for the confusion. You do not need to remove the dash. You can access the relay panel from underneath, by the steering column. You'll need to remove the underpanel.

thanks....enjoy the church service
Ok, on your comfort relay you should have a terminal #30 and #87. Remove the relay and make sure you have power on terminal #30. If you do I'd like you to jump from terminal #30 to #87 in the connector using a fused jumper wire and see if everything works.

Unfortunately that's beyond my talents

 

Ok, I'm running out to the Rays / Yankees game for a few hours. I'll try to give you some other things to look at when I return this evening. Do you think you could pick up a cheap test light in the meantime?

I'll try.....have fun at the game

HiCustomer are you sure you replaced the correct relay? Do you have the part #? Did you ever get a test light?
