The front headlight control relay is in location #5.  You are right, the aux
relay panal picture on Bentley pg. 531 shows the connectors on the wrong
side, the one for the '90 200Q on pg 333 is correct. the relay may be
numbered, mine is #281 in location #5.  It is the small pin that needs to be
bent flat.
