Yes. If the relay has aged the holding coil could become week or intermittent. However, it is more likely that you have a loose connection in the relay control circuit or the contacts on the relay are worn. Also check the wires going to the inertial fuel cutoff switch. This could also be a source of strange behavior. The fuel pump or it power circuit could also be the problem. Good luck!

I am presently having the same problem on my '97 sunfire. According to the wiring diagram, the daytime running lights are actually just the highbeams running in series. For whatever reason, I don't have a driver side high beam either. I assumed it was the relay, but I might be mistaken. Where is the darn relay located anyway? the relay is in the fuse box inside the car on the drivers side door panel

Ac relay and DC relay?

what is the meaning of ac relay and dc relay EDIT: a DC relay is simply a coil and core that pulls on an armature. An AC relay usually needs a shaded-pole core (couple of copper loops) to prevent the armature from vibrating at 60 cycles or so. The core, also, is laminated steel like a transformer; so is the armature to help contain the magnetic field. You should not substitute a DC rated relay for an AC , but the reverse should be ok, if voltage and current ratings are the same.

Why is your 1989 Mitsubishi magna doesn't seem to be getting fuel?

Is your fuel pump running? Turn the ignition on without starting the engine. You should hear the pump run for a few seconds. If not, then check the fuel pump fuse and relay. If it is running and no fuel, replace the fuel filter. If the fuse and relay are good, and the pump is not running, the pump is bad.
