Quickest way is to swap it out with another relay in the box or if u have a volt meter, check for voltage in the socket where relay plugs in. There's 2 terminals that should have voltage to ground. 1 is when u try to start it and the other one is the one feeding the relay contacts after a fuse. If relay is clicking when u start it, you probably have a blown fuse
