TIPM Relay Orientation

I wanted to make sure I aligned the Relays (K1-K12)correctly in the TIPM. I looked at the Jeep Owner manual and the picture gave me clue on the alignment, but it is lacking one relay when compared with my Jeep Liberty 2012 Sport TIPM. When I was inserting the relays I noticed there are 4 pins, and in the base there are 5 holes. And the Middle hole is usually aligned to 87A tip, but there is no pin. I just want to make sure my assumption is correct.

Any tips or pictures (jeep kk 2012) on how to make sure the relays are positioned correctly on TIPM is greatly appreciated?
Thank you
RKK

Sorry, I'm next to clueless on this subject, but I found something on the forum here which I hope is of help: (probably not, because it is for Wrangler) http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/o...study-1200238/

Thanks Stang977 for trying. If the image is too large (> 600kbytes) you could have problems uploading the picture. I had similar issue and I had to send the picture from iphone with smaller resoulution before I could upload the picture.

What do you think about the way the Relays were plugged in? Are they matching with your vehilce fusebox? These Omron relays are 4 pin relays and it is possible to plug them in the wrong way, when you look at the Fuse Box picture the "Omron" name could be up or down. I don't want to take chance of trying the wrong as it could damage the relay.

On comparison, I found 6 that are opposite (upside down from mine).

Edit: Here you go: My box. Hope this helps!

Does any one know what the rule of thumb when inserting these relays? I attached the base phone with 5 holes and the relay with 4 pins.

The energising poles are diagonally opposite each other so are the switching poles.
So it does not matter which way they are inserted.
