I'm no sparky but, I dissected one of these a couple of years ago and read a bit and you have to be careful that the correct internal diode/ resistor is there as when the relay is switched off a back emf can occur and shunt current to the ECU along the ground wire ?

We must have somebody clever with electrics who knows all this stuff and can expand on it ?

Anyway, I wouldn't stick any old relay in ..I'd check the spec closely especially with God knows what getting into the supply chain from China , sold for the lowest price..

I've got a few OE spare you can have one for the cost of the post..
