My truck is actually an '05, but I figured since there is no generic electrical section, I figured I'd post it here. I'm wiring in the 08-11 power fold/tele mirrors in my truck and need the relay to make the power fold feature work with the factory '08+ mirror switch.
The factory part number listed is 8C3Z-14N089-A.
My dealer wants $100+ for it and the cheapest I've found is like $75 elsewhere. That being said, I'm looking for better options.
I'm curious if most 12V 5 pin relays (physically the identical as the one pictured) are basically the same... I understand that there are different amperage relays, but are the internals in this Ford relay doing anything special that a Dorman/Bosch relay isn't going to do?
One example I've found is this:
Santech/5 pin universal double pole single throw relay (MT0320) | Relay and Resistors | AutoZone.com
It is labeled "5 pin universal double pole single throw relay". Sounds like it'd work; but again, I'm no relay expert.
Can someone shed some light on this subject for me?
I just can't see spending $75+ on a FORD relay if it isn't doing anything different than a standard off the shelf one would.
