I see this is your first forum post, so welcome to the forum from Oregon!

Can you post pictures of this fuse box, especially the round pins & relay? Is the red light a CEL?

Those are the older style relays. Take a look at my write up here, which shows both type relays.

The relay you are pointing at is for the rear luggage/hatch area power supply. If removed you won't be able to use the power supply in the back of the car.

Note the wiring diagram...in the lower right hand corner of the page is the relay.

That relay is operated (on) in the ACC & RUN position on the ignition switch. I'm going to say it's normal for it to be warm, perhaps very warm, but not to the point where you couldn't keep your fingers on it.

^^^Agreed. I just did Sleeper's jumper wire mod and the relay was warm after I got home from work. Although it was warm it wasn't too hot to touch or hold.
