Help identifying mini relay please

Hello all,

I have a mini relay that definitely came out of a 1983 Porsche 944 it has a Bosch part no 0 332 014 454 on it which when you look it up the Bosch part no it comes up as a BMW relay.

It is a 4 pin as per attached photos and I am trying to find out what the equivalent Porsche part no would be, can anyone help please

It's been my experience that Porsche uses quite a few electrical and electronic parts from other German mfr's...VW, BMW, perhaps, even Audi

Looks like a generic relay used for many things on these cars. Horns, flashers, blower motor, etc. They work on many different components on several different cars. Whoever had your car before you probably took one from a BMW because it was easily sourced and worked (and probably cheaper than a 'Porsche' labelled one...IE: BMW relay is $3 and same Porsche relay is $22).

If you want the Porsche specific relay, look up the part number on PET of where it went in the car and order accordingly.

Quick google search provides the following information:

Bosch 0332014454 = Porsche 00004490006

https://hc-cargo.co.uk/catalog/p/160083--mini-relay

Common part for BMW, little Porsche use.

Try 141-951-253-B which handles 40 A. But a lot easier to pin down if you could tell us the application, ie, where the relay is used in your car.
