The blue one is the turn Indicator Flasher Relay

The closest to the blue in this picture is the Interior Lamp Relay

The next one over is the Horn Relay

The missing one is probably the Battery Saver Relay

They will get warm when activated for awhile, maybe even a little hot but the box shouldn't get too hot to touch. Can you narrow it down to one relay that is getting a lot hotter than the others?

It might be your multifunction switch. I have the same problem and that is what's wrong with mine.
