a relay is a relay, as long as it has 5 pins it should work.. you can get them at radio shack if you wanted to.
Untrue, a better quality relay will have Nickle -vs- copper Contacts, and a higher Quality Relay will hava a diode in the coil windings, resulting in better clamping of the contacts, and longer life. A better Quality Relay will also have a Higher Amp Rating, of 30 to 40 amp -vs- 15 to 20 amps on a cheaper Relay. Now Better Quality does not always mean Higher Price (like the Doo relay)

Rev Kev,

Does the "30" on the e-diagram refer to the amp rating? If so, both AR145 and AR201 are rated at 30. I assume from your comment there to be no issues with running a higher amp rated relay on a 20 amp system?

Cheers,

G MAN

Not if you are refering to the Pin number. Also the higher amp relays useally have the higher Quality Contacts.
