Not quite; #30 connects to #87, but the switching occurs between #85 and #86, and the center pinout (connecting to the diode) is 86A.
I tried reconfiguring the receptacle to make it work with that standard relay, and it absolutely is not the same.
Again, the pinouts go thusly ( BMW/ Bosch diode- included unit):
#30, 85, 86, 86a, 87
The auto parts haus relays are as follows:
#30, 85, 86, 87a, 87
See the distinction?
Now I gotta finagle a ride from the airport south to Palmetto.
