Default V45 Magna - What is this?

Hey guys -

First issue. Ebay calls this a starter solenoid but from what I can tell from Clymer's it's the turn signal relay. I have a feeling ebay is right but hoped you guys could confirm for me.

The thing most prominent in the picture is the socket for the main fuse.....which looks to be cooked.

Underneath the fried fuse holder, likely is the starter solenoid, which often has a rubber boot over it. The main fuse holder is often mounted right on top of the solenoid but the picture in inconclusive with all the covers and stuff in the way.

I have this strange feeling, however, that you aren't asking the REAL question yet.

Whatever the part, I wouldn't bet it's in "good working order"
