I am trying to get a small 1.5V display motor to turn 1st one direction and then the opposite. I understood that a "miderton" DTDP relay 8 pin would do this. The coil relay part is 12V. The relay is plugged into a base. I can get the motor to turn in one direction however when I activate the 12V coil it stops the motor but when the 12V coil is un-activated the motor continues in the same direction. I wired it according to YouTube videos for 8 pin relays.

Also the base has a small flat orange spring loaded tab on the bottom but I do not what this is for or how to use it. Any help would be appreciated.

My knowledge of of all of this and circuits is low. Are you saying as per your image LY2(2) that pin 1 & 3 should be wired together and pin 3 & 4 should be wired together instead of my pin 4 & 5 and pin 3 & 6 together?

    \$\begingroup\$ Please add a schematic diagram showing how you wired it, and provide a link to a datasheet for the relay. We don't know what connections the YouTube videos you saw showed. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jul 26, 2019 at 23:14
  • \$\begingroup\$ The orange thing is used to latch the relay socket onto a DIN rail - nothing to do with the relay contacts or operation. We still need datasheets for the relay and socket to detmine the required wiring. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jul 29, 2019 at 1:23
