glow plug relay confusion?

i bought a glow plug relay for my 2002 f250 with a 7.3 from autozone. This particular relay has two red wires coming off of it into a plugin connector.

My question is where does the connector go and what does it do?

The FORD one kinda sucks too though

If you want to get a bullet proof relay go with Stancore ->
Welcome to guzzle's Stancor GPR replacement Mod Web Page

All relays are pretty simple... What you have is Not, specifically, made for your truck but could easily be used. The plug has the two Coil wires in it. Just take those two small wires (and the plug) off and connect your two small wires to those connections (doesn't matter which way they go) and your two Large wires to the two Large terminals.

some of them have the connector if you buy elcheapo one customer bought did. I (this is what I would do if I was you) double check part #'s and just take it off...just be advised elcheapo wont last long...

Might be a universal one that fits the older OBS setups. My 95 had a plug molded into the relay vs the two small studs. Just remove the pigtail and put your small wires on the small studs and large wires on the large studs and you should be fine.
