Parts fail all the time. Some last for years and some don't.

For nearly $400 I hope he did something more than just replace the relay!! I'm assuming you're talking about the radiator cooling fan relay? Your mechanic should have also checked the power draw of the fan(s). If the fans are dying they can be pulling too much power through the circuit and that's what burned out the relay. Unfortunately fuses don't always blow when they should! HTH. -Jim
