One replacement that I really liked:
I used to own a TR 7... and the relay that controls the headlights used
to go out... all the time... and that round, blue sucker would cost me
something like $25 to $35 each time around...
Finally, I went to RADIO SHACK...
I found a SQUARE, BLACK relay... that had the SAME connectors (three
prong, if I recall) and the SAME specifications... plugged it in...
right where the blue one used to be... and drove the car for another 2
years without having to replace the radio shack unit... (I went through
about 5 STOCK ones!)
Back then, it cost me $1.99. It's probably about $5.99 now... who
