Hi!

A few weeks ago my radio stop working properly, cigarette lighter stoped and high beams stopped.

Had a look at the fuses yesterday and noticed that the big white acc relay was extreamly hot.

Jumped in the car today and took the fuse box cover off and had my hand on it while driving and the relay headed up again.

Is this just a relay problem or something more?

Thanks

did you change anything on the car before this problem started?

relays generally get a bit warm, but if it's too hot to touch, you're either drawing too much current through it, or the relay contacts are shot....
