Nope.

Go and buy a Gregorys or similar workshop manual. They show where some of the relays are.

The issue is that if your EB is an EB1 the relays are in different locations compared to an EB11 and ED.

EF/EL are completely different again.

Which relays in particular are you looking for?

Cheers
BenJ

I have an EBII, was gonna check the relay for the starter, i know its one of the four beside the batttery. Intention was to swap the starter relay with another, (theyre all identical), to check if its the relay. I need to check the entire System from Battery to starter motor, to find the short, or whatever it is.
Its doing my head in, school holidays, & all. :x
I have the haynes manual, but it aint specific enough for my problem.

Thanx Benj

What exactly is the symptoms?

Is it cranking over at all?

Does your car have remote central locking? If so, smartlock could also be a problem.

When i try to crank, it shorts ALL power out after a split second of cranking. I can move the wires at the red terminal, the power restores, so i must have something shorting out, between the battery & starter, maybe just behind the battery, under the relays?
Im going down soon to check it again.
It does have central locking too, i have looked into that side of it yet,
Ive read of it mentioned here & there.

thanx

All good, it wasnt a relay,
turned out to be a connection somewhere.
I removed the battery, cleaned all connections,
put em back nice & tight, problem solved.
Thanx for the input
