    O.E.M. Starter Relay

    Thought I'd bring this up again in case someone has run across a relay in the past few months...



    I am looking for an OEM starter relay for my 89 SC. The original is inop, and I have installed an aftermarket piece for the time being. The replacement piece needs to be functional, have the correct P/N (E9TF-11450-AA), be date coded to my vehicle assembly date, and must be in excellent cosmetic condition, comparable to my original (see attached photos).

    The date code, shown in photo 4, is P9E8; which decodes as follows:

    P = Design level
    9 = Year (1989)
    E = Month (May)
    8 = Day (8th.)


    I will take date codes from P9E4 - P9E12. This is within an acceptable production window for my car build date.


    As a bonus, if anyone can tell me the significance of the "A2" following the date code, I'd appreciate it. I assume it describes the production line and shift, but can't decide if it means:

    A = 1st shift
    2 = Line 2

    -or-

    A = "A" Line
    2 = 2nd. shift


    For my purposes, it's not important what these two characters read on the starter relay you have.

    Thanks,

    JD

    If anyone has an 89 parts car, take a look and let me know what you have.

    Thanks,

    What are the date codes? Also, I'm looking for something that will clean up like my original, pictured above. As long as the base plate is in good shape, the rest should clean up.

    If you have a source that will rebuild my original, I'd LOVE to have the contact information. That was my first choice, but I was unable to locate a service.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the response. That's the closest date I've found so far. After you check your other one, let me know which date is closer, and shoot me a couple of photos. I'll P/M you my email address.

    Thanks!

    its just a relay!

    why not get a new relay and use the current relay housing? or you can even paint the numbers on the new relay??

    I don't get the point.
