As I said in the original note, 12 volt, square, blue relay found near the driver seat. It fell from somewhere inside the cabin. Where is the most likely place it would fit. There is no empty socket right near the driver's side fuse box.

I can send a photo of the relay if you need me to.

Recently purchased this vehicle used. Most things seem to be working properly. Have not noticed anything malfunctioning.

IF nothing is malfunctioning & everything works, then it is likely it was exchanged or left there.......
These Relays do not fall out, unless they are physically pulled loose
There is a Relay box on Driver side under Driver dash
Remove lower Dash Panel that is held on with a couple of screws on the bottom, then carefully pull lower Dash Panel off
Relays are behind the Fuse Panel
Toyota does NOT denote the "color" of the Relay.........

Hi Don,
I thought you might have a photo of the Toyota boards (re. color of relay). I just noticed that the console lights do not go on at night/when headlights are turned on. The knobs like fan and heat, plus the D, R, N on the shift should be backlit, right? Maybe this is what the relay is for. Have not yet had the time to take the panel off, we were very busy this weekend.
Thanks, Eric

Thank you for the schematics. That helps. As I asked in the previous question, which you did not answer,
Are the console knobs (fan, temp etc) and the letters on the shift (P, R, D N etc.) supposed to light up when the head lights are turned on or in the dark? If they should be lit, then that function is not working properly and might be where the relay goes. Although the schematic shows the relays, I don't know what "IG1 relay" or "PWR relay" mean. I'm guessing that PWR means power, but power to what?
