Features

Overview: A relay is simply an electrically activated switch. Relays are used in a wide variety of automotive applications. This relay is composed of three contacts (terminals #30, #87A, and #87). Activating this relay is done with the coil (terminals #85 and #86). For auto security applications there are numerous features which require the use of a low-current relay such as Siren Chirp, WarnAway, Circuit Isolation, Trigger Inversion, Truck Release, and Temporary Sensor Disconnect. The 8616 relay is capable of handling 20A maximum across its normally open contacts and 10A maximum across its normally closed contacts.

Note: This relay is not intended for high current applications such as Starter Kill or Headlight Turn-On.

Perfect Tool for the Job

Written By Brian, Southfield, MI on Wednesday, April 22, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I needed a relay for cutting the signal to the amp-enable input of the JVC amplifier. This silenced the stereo system when a Bluetooth hands-free phone call was active. This relay was perfect for the job because it is robust and pre-wired. This made the installation quick and easy.

Does what it should

Written By Paul, Stamford, CT on Thursday, September 25, 2008
 
I put this in my car about 3 months ago because my headunits REM line did not have enough power to turn on 2 amps and my capacitor. Installation was easy I used the power feed to my capacitor and the ground to the capacitor (if you dont have those feeds installation may be a little trickier) but besides that everything is great
