8 Relay box layout??

Does anyone have a diagram of which relay does what in the 8 (small) relay box behind the dash, just above the gas pedal?

I need to get a new relay to see if the relay that controls the courtesy lights/4x4 cluster indicator/wipers/glove box lights/under hood lights/theft indicator is bad.

I was near the dealership when my interior lights, etc went out. We pulled the radio & the tech knocked on the GEM (nothing happened) and he knocked on the relays behind the dash-above the gas pedal (nothing happened) as well as the relays under the hood (nothing happened here either).
He said I could try a new relay (he said he'd have to go online later & find out which one goes where...I've been looking, but can't find any helpful info) to see if the one controlling all the stuff that's causing my problems might be bad. I figure a $10 relay is worth a shot.

I got to the GEM tonight & sprayed some WD-40 in the contacts of each connector. While I was moving the GEM around, the interior lights would go on, go off, go on, go off.... after I cleaned the bottom connector on the GEM, the lights seemed to work a bit longer than the usual 20 seconds. I even pulled on each wire of each connector to see if the lights came on, but no luck.
When the lights came on, I could hear a relay kick on/off, but I couldn't get my hand on the relays to feel which one was activating.

Thanks in advance

You can also save the PDF file so you'll have a copy of your owners manual for future reference.
