What is this relay box to?

So I pulled the battery on the wagon today(going to start breaking it down to see what's doing with it and how clear I can get to the rear exhaust manifold) and also removed the battery box. Attached to the battery box is a relay box with 3 relays in it. What is this to? My guess is to the fog lights, but I am not sure

I believe I have that on mine and I don't have any fog lights. Mine is taped in though.

See attached, that is BJB1 battery relay box. Fan relays if my diag is correct.

Good idea t remove the bat box once every 10 years and clean it up. Grease the bolts that hold it in the car.

My bad, Fog lights, daytime running lights at least.

So it is called Relay Center box 1.
So try to find it if you have never done it before, looking for fog light relay. I looked at the JY to see what was behind the bat box.

Thanks. It's just interesting that I've never seen that box before. I've had the hood open on that car a LOT over the last 2.5 years.

It's hiding back there. Need to know kind of thing.

I went looking as I wanted my fogs to work in autolamp. Then found that feature is in some years, not others and it is in the HL switch. Got a switch at the JY that allowed fogs with autolamp. So, no need for me to do anything in the hidden chest of relays. Just switch HL switches.
