Autolamp Relay

Does anyone have a diagram of the location of the Autolamp relay ?

Is it one of the four under the dash, near the console ?

Thanks in advance !

Headlight Relay Installation
Hello, I know this is a frequent & old topic but I can’t find the link that further explains it.
Found what I think is the correct diagram for my 85 T-bird. Highlight’s.

Question is, Where on the vehicle does the GRN /Blk , and the RED/BLK branch off?
I am hoping the branch is closer to the headlights themselves, or at least under the hood, making the install of the relay’s consist of only Two.
Am I on the right path?
Thanks, John C.

S115 & S116 location is,"L H Front Fender Apr0n." For cars without autolamp feature.

S115 location is, "Front of engine compartment." For cars with autolamp feature.
S116 location is, "Behind L H Headlamp."

Trimmed the diagram down to just the Turbo Coupe part.
Connector C286 is a gray 8 pin connector.  "LH front fender apr0n, near voltage regulator."
If you still have the 1G alternator with the external regulator.

OK, good news, I’m working in the right direction. Next step for me,
Physically locate the S116 High beam, & S115 l Low beam junction’s, and splice the Relay(s) into an accessible point prior to each junction.
2.3 came with an aftermarket Inter-cooler, runs good, needs some TLC for its full potential.
