Piaa relay 33260

I need another PIAA 33260 relay. I have one controlling the fog lamps and another controlling the daytime lights. They off course plug into existing lamp harnesses

Where do I get another?
Amazon says donít know when it will be available and eBay says sold out.

A hastle to change relays and wiring harnesses

It might be easiest to figure out the wiring for that PIAA relay, then wire a new relay on to the existing harness plug (removed from the PIAA relay).

How many contacts are in that plug?

I agree. I did some searching and looks like that relay is $25-35. Wow.

Get a standard automotive relay and move the plug over. Save some money and have better future replacement availability.

Exactly what I did. Took the Piaa relay apart hoping to repair. Blown fuse but coil still open after replacement.

The Piaa relay had no schematic so if I guessed correctly I have a modified relay

Piaa Relay fuse question

In adapting the new harness I fused the coil circuit at 30A since there was a fuse in the relay enclosure. No schematic as I said before but assume it was for the coil. That begs the question should I fuse the power circuit? I could not find an existing fuse on the existing Piaa harness. I would assume it would be on the wires coming from the battery that power the harness. Anybody know if there is a fuse in that circuit?

The fuse for the coil circuit would only need to probably less than one amp, but a 3 or 5 amp fuse is fine. The contacts on the relay are rated for 30 amps. I would fuse them for that, if there is nit already another fuse in the circuit somewhere. I'm guessing not and that the fuse in the enclosure was a fuse for the contacts/load.

Can you unscrew that little board that the relay is mounted to, flip it over and take a pic?

Where are you at in Portland? I'm out way southeast.

Piaa relay

Fixed it

I incorrectly diagnosed the relay had a blown coil because of the blown fuse. The more I thought about it the fuse was in the 14 ga white wire circuit which has to be power. The smaller 20 ga wires were the coil circuit

The was a note on the wiring diagram that white wire with red dot was a switched circuit which led me to believe it was the coil circuit

Reattached harness plug to relay and all works fine now

BTW talked to the company who bought PIAA and they plan to start manufacturing the PIAA 33260 relay
