    Where is this relay located on a 2016 Ram 1500 with a 5.7? Thanks!

    It has been suggested that it is in the power distribution center F01. F01 is position is empty.

    It has been suggested that it is near the horn. Nope, just the horn there. No relay.

    Underneath the power distribution center? Not literally and I did not see any obvious relay in the area...

    Perhaps that meant - under the fuse board in the power distribution center... A swing and a miss as far as I can tell. 2019-08-12-19-34-46.jpg 2019-08-12-19-35-27.jpg IMG_20190812_192821534.jpg

    Did you install a relay into the high position?

    I did not and was not planning to. As far as I know it has never been populated. Should I install one?

    I would install a relay. That is the correct location for the high speed relay, and it’s missing.
