    While your topic is related to the original thread in that you're both talking about relays, what you've done is "hijack" a topic, which is frowned upon around here, as it causes confusion. A moderator will soon move your request to it's own thread.

    Relays come in many configurations. I couldn't seem to locate a datasheet for your particular relay, but all is not lost. ;)

    From the "DC5V" suffix, it appears that the relay's coil is rated for 5V DC.

    Since your relay has 8 pins, one probable configuration would be double-pole, double-throw; each double-throw switch taking 3 pins. This leaves two pins for the relay's coil.

    Do you have an image of your relay that you can post?

    Are the pins in a circle, or in two rows, evenly spaced, or in two rows, three together and two off by themselves? Or do they resemble a square?

    Do one of the pins have a different color insulator at the body? (those usually mark one of the coil connections)

    Do you have a multimeter or DMM?
