Are you asking where to buy the relay or how to perform a battery drain test?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Do I have to buy the relay at KIA.... and if not....what is the name to give Advance? Parki g lights??? Dash lights ??? What is the purpose of the relay?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 10 months ago.

No you can buy this TNS/tail light relay from a parts store. There is not a name for it other than a relay. You just have to remove and match it up to the relays they sale. Once the relay is energized it powers all the parking lights.
