Hi,

How to test is one relay is dead ?



It is not like a fuse or seen it's broken or not.

I think I have a relay HS but I do not know whether or HS OK?

Thanks

Hi GoneD..
Might I make a suggestion. Please put your model and year car in your CP area so I/We don't have to go through your past posts to find what you have.
The relay you are pointing at is a common one used in this car (2003 Rio) if you are in question about a relay working....try substituting one of the same type relays you have in the fuse box with the one in question. If that function now works you probably have a bad relay. What do you mean by "HS"?

You can test a relay by applying 12 vdc to the coil of the relay and use an ohmeter to check the contacts for continuity on and off, or like dave say's just swap it out with another of the same.
