Where can I find this headlight upgrade relay?

Years ago I installed a GOS Performance in my '06 F-350 PSD. Since then, one relay has failed and I need to replace it. At first, I thought it would the standard Bosch-type relay but it isn't. Pics of the relay I need are enclosed below.

Here is the link to the wiring harness from GOS: http://gosperformance.com/shop/index...oducts_id=1163 I've asked the people at GOS but nothing definitive there yet. I was given a NAPA part number (AR502) but it's not correct. Additionally, I looked through the NAPA catalog, over 100 relays, and didn't find an equivalent relay.

There is an Ebay seller that has these relays but they are out of Taiwan and shipping is pretty steep; I'm hoping for a local source. Since I'm not sure if Ebay auctions are allowed, I won't post the link; but just do a search on "YKS" on Ebay and you'll see his auction.

The part number is S11-1A-C1-12 and manufacturers include Shori and YKS.

Anyone know of another source for these relays?

Thanks,

I ended up buying these relays off an Ebay seller.


And just for the record: GOS Technologies was totally useless. I'll never buy another one of their products again.

It is too bad that GOS does not know where to get these replacement relays, I have the same wiring harness you do. I do know know if the relay is the same.

Another thing you could do is find a suitable replacement relay and with a wiring pigtail (ie a matching plug) then cut out the old plug and wire in the new one. Then you should be able to source the replacement relays at your local parts store.

No offense, but duh. I bought the GOS harness so wouldn't have to do that.

GOS did reply to one e-mail with a NAPA part number that turned out to be wrong. They did mention that they had replacement relays, but then I never could get an answer to questions such as: how much, is it the same relay and what's the part number. They just didn't respond.

Neither here nor there now; I ebay'd three of them from a Taiwan supplier, should arrive day after tomorrow.
