I would just replace all the relays, this doesn't need to cost a bunch of money, new relays are not very expensive but if you want dirt cheap ones go to a local "pick a part" wrecking yard and grab a handful from a wrecked acclaim, odds are very good that they worked when the car crashed and will still work now, plus the wrecker won't want hardly anything for them, also there is no way to tell if a relay is bad by looking at it, inside there is a tiny mechanical switch, over time it will stick in either the open circuit or closed circuit position. Relays stuck in the closed position are the number one cause of mysterious electrical drains that kill the battery while the car is off, relays stuck in the open position are usually responsible for components to stop working.

Yup - last time I checked it was as cold as ice. You nailed it there.

Mine were in the glove compartment, in a box labelled "spare spark plugs". (Have you checked there?) There may be some others in the engine compartment, but I couldn't find them on my diesel version.

Have you checked the fuse and relay? - They are in the engine compartment above the passenger strut.

Check the bulbs to see if they are shot. If that does not resolve the problem check the fuse. If that does not resolve the problem take it to a mechanical and have it checked for wiring problems.

If there is a gas smell inside the passenger compartment of a car, there is probably an exhaust leak in the system. Have it checked immediately.
