[DML] Re: Ignition Resisitor Relay..

It isn't that complicated a circuit. The Blue/Yellow wire from the
starter goers to 85 on the relay (instead of the middle of the
resistor). That is the coil of the relay which grounds through the
black wire from 86. The NO contacts 87 and 30 short out 1/2 of the
ballast resistor with the other blue/yellow and white wires. That
blue/yellow wire from the starter is only supposed to have 12 volts
during cranking. As Martin points out this is also power for the cold
start valve.
