What brand is the relay?  If it is a quality relay, and you are just running Blinker/tail lights through it, I highly doubt that you have a bad relay.  A bad relay would not allow enough current through, thus having a dim light.  A dim light produces no heat.

If you are talking about a 3-wire flasher can etc, the 3rd wire has to go to its own dash bulb to indicate that it is indicating.
You should be able to leave it disconnected if you have left & right dash indicators tat are wired to the respective sides.
To connect the 3rd wire to another powered light means you may be injecting power into the can.
As to dual-filament bulbs, although headlight bulbs (like H4 etc) should not have both filaments on long-term, the smaller stop/tail or parker/indicators are ok - that is common on older vehicles. (EG - a 4/21W or 7/21W dual filament bulb.)

And even nicer - or rather, more satisfying - to have blacklisted and targeted another business URL.
(Sorry guys - I have noted the tendency to not bother responding to these jerks, but I felt that such a lovely greeting deserved a fairly warm response. I only wish I was building web pages so that these sites would be spammed by trawlers. You Spam us - we'll cause others to spam you. I like it!)
