    Help identifying a relay

    My auxiliary fan wont turn off when I stop the car, and I have found the solution, but I noticed no one else has this relay (blue one):

    Im thinking it might have something to do with the aftermarket cooling system. I just got the car two days ago, so I am not too familiar with it. When I unplug the wire that is in my hand, the fan stops. If anyone has advice/solutions please let me know.

    The wire was attached to the metal tab on the red fuse

    I now think it might have something to do with the HID's, not sure how that affects the auxiliary fan though.

    Only picture I have taken of it. I'll take better ones once I get back and clean it. I took the decal off.

    The relay is the high beam relay. the fuse (33) can be explained on pg 610-27 in the bentley manual. your aux fan motor wiring can be explained on pg ele-94.

    I'm guessing your aux fan is connected to power somewhere it normally isn't...check for modifications to the blue and blu/black wires at the aux fan.

    It ended up being the relay for an aftermarket (spal) auxiliary fan. So glad I just figured that out. The aux fan would not turn off when I turned the car off. There is a manual switch on the center console that turns it on and off.
