A good reason for using a relay is that you can control a large current with a small current remotely, which means that you only have to run a single small wire from a dash mounted switch to the relay, which can be mounted close to the load...

You can also wire a relay to allow several control inputs, so you could switch a fan on with both a thermal switch, and a dash mounted switch...

I try to avoid bringing high current loads from the engine compartment into the car, especially under the dash..If you ever fried an inadequate switch under your dash you'll appreciate why.

Malc is one of our "global" presences.. One of the few that I'd consider truly "worldly" in his experiences and perspective...

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
