i thought starter relays would work for gpr's?

i was told a sterter relay would work for a gpr,not for very long but it would work for awhile,so i buy one and it is set up so power in and power out on the small terminals,so the relay is always energized,then when you switch the wires,its always dead? what gives man

a friend of mine did that and it didn't work, they work differently, the gpr is suppose to send 12v to the glow plugs from the battery when turned to "wait to start". the starter relay isn't setup to do that. it won't send power when turned "wait to start".

A starter relay is not designed for this type of use.

In addition, the starter relay coil is grounded to the mounting flange, requiring a positive input fron the key. The GPR has two coil terminals, one for ignition positive (hot in run,) the other to PCM, which provides a switched negative to turn the coil on/off.
