RE: [DML] Ignition Resisitor Relay..



Marc, If you have seen what I have seen over the years you would understand
how the relay could energize. 
When those large contacts in the starter solenoid start loosing there copper
and it mixes with grease you don't have a carbon path but you have enough of
a mixture of copper to conduct electricity to energize a relay. It only
takes about 100 MA. If the starter solenoid is old replace it, and if it's
new then something is wired wrong.

Thanks for all the responses on this..  I guess I just
have to trace the wires...

I started having a phantom battery drain problem on
1860, and when I hooked up the charger to it the other
day I heard a "click".  Strange, because the ignition
was off.  I quickly realized that the relay in
question was energized with the ignition off!  Now I
need to figure out why, with no scematic!
