Default What is this relay box for?

It's located in front of the battery and has two diodes in it. It has IGN 12V which I'd like to take current from the newly installed daylights.

The relay box between the battery and the fender also has IGN 12V but for the injectors. So I don't like to take current from there.

If its like the gen 2, the relay box next to the battery is for the ac clutch and radiator fans.

Yes, Gen 2. If you say next to battery box do you mean in front of it or left to it?

I get IGN 12 V from the relay box in front of the battery which seems to drive the radiator and A/C fans. I've soldered it to the pink cable.

One mystery: all works but when the ground of the DRL was disconnected by mistake and reconnected again the radiotor fan was running. ???
