Hi there,

Does your new relay have any numbers on it? Or a diagram?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
30, 85,86, 87, and I think 85b for center pin, I believe I only have 4 wires total
Expert:  Mike V. replied 1 year ago.

Ok, 30 and 87 on the same side and then 85/86 on the other?

one is the coil and the other is the switch. The diagram doesn't actually give me these numbers, however i should be able to figure it out for you.

87b is just the rested position, so you are correct, you do only have 4 wires.

looks like 85 and 86 are the coil and 30 is switched against 87 and 87a
Expert:  Mike V. replied 1 year ago.

This should be the wire color and pin set up you need.

Yep, this is correct.

pin 30, light blue/black
Pin 87, black/white
pin 85, dark green/white
last pin, 86 solid black
