No relay per say, voltage regulator is the main control, you didn't mention your engine, but check your main fuses if it is not charging first, and do not remove a battery terminal with the engine running, you could fry a bunch of electronics. I suspect the alternator has failed just by the age of the rig. Get the battery fully charged and have the charging system checked.

It's a 5.4 gas engine. Alternator is less than a year old.


Was it new or a reman alternator?
