relay on my 05

Mine is an 04, The 06 may be in the same place. It is right above the Inside Hood release. The relay looks circular and has a reddish connector on the wiring harness. I simply unplugged it and put a jumper across pins 2 & 4 of the connector, then tapped it back, out of the way, to the wiring harness.
Just went looking on my 05 and found two round relays mounted on the left side of the block of fuses and relays above the hood release. Neither has a red connector. Can someone help identify which one is the "rear accessory power relay".
