We talk about relays a lot around here. And that’s simply because they’re really, really handy in situations where you need to control the flow of power to your electrical accessories. (Essentially, relays allow you to power on/off your electrical devices remotely.)

That also means there’s a good chance you’ll come across relays whenever you’re repairing or installing an electrical component on your vehicle—which includes everything from foglights to stereos to aftermarket gauges.
