    LOL, well the relay that failed still clicks, so for all intents at purposes it sounds like it's functioning. However, it is not electrically sound and doesn't actually engage the relay contacts or...

    My 4th one appears to be in the AUX section according to the fusebox labeling.

    In any case, thanks for the prompt help in diagnosing and correcting the situation!
