Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i blew a relay last weekend... it was on fire... im not sure if its for the tranny or the electrical... my car was stalled,
battery got drained (purchased it just last year) and my tach and speedometer stopped working... i got towed from
highway to the shop... what do you guys think this is for? i have a pic... the relay is behind the engine, bottom part,
connected to the tranny (but my transmission still works fine)... the downside is, battery is drained... need help
before i start buying stuff and have everything up and running again... thanks in advance, guys.
