The relay has contacts & should be worn out

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It has a new relay their sir. The old one was the factory relay, and I replaced that one and all of them under the hood also.

ok ,well you then need the truck on a scanner that can read all functions to find the issue .....a code reader such as at parts stores will not do this
