After replacing the battery, fuses started blowing. I gave a new gem ordered but I need to make sure the battery saver relay isn't bad first. Located what I thought was it behind steering wheel, but need specifics to make sure I have the correct relay before ordering a replacement.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

I went through the wiring schematics. I found there are two possible locations based on options. If the vehicle has the power equipment package, it will be behind the dash to the right of the steering column. If it only has rear anti-lock brakes, it is mounted in the main wiring harness at the RABS module.

I attached a pic of both options.

Let me know if this helps,

Joe

Joe, thank you, you're a genius for including the correct color of the wires. That was how I knew for sure I found it
I have another question now, should I ask here or post as a new question?
Thank you, that made all the difference!

Hi,

Thank you for the compliment, but I'm not a genius. LOL I'm glad you found what you were looking for.

As far as a different question, if it is related to the same topic, just ask it here. If it deals with something different, start a new post. We ask people to do that, so it is more helpful to others. I hope you understand. If that is the case, here is the link to start a new one:

Let me know.

Take care,

Joe

Hi Joe, I replied to this earlier but I'm not sure if it was posted, so I want to thank you again and tell you it was brilliant to include the diagrams with the colors of the wires indicated. That was what let me find it for sure!

Hi Stacy, I did see it and responded as well. I'm not sure if you saw it. LOL

Regardless, you are very welcome and I'm glad to know it helped. Please feel free to come back at any time in the future. You are always welcome.

Take care of yourself,

Joe
