Explorer Auto dim relay warning

This is a warning for members who installed the Explorer Auto dim mirror. A whille back I smelled something burning in my truck and could never figure out what it was. Today while doing a tear down, I realized the smell was the relay system I had built. The relays I used were aftermarkets, and I believe they are just junk! The sides of the relays were melting!! I recommend you guys use OEM relays for this mod. If you have a hard time getting them, I can get them for you. Check your relays if you have this mod!





I had these in for over 2 years, but safest bet is to check yours just in case!

I know I did the wiring wuite well. I think its just cheap autozone junk! They still functioned well, for over 3 years, but I dont think that brand was meant to last too long
