[DML] Re: Fuel Pump Not Getting Voltage After RPM Relay Replaced

As usual you are right. I don't know what I was thinking. I learned it
as E = I X R. Anyway as the connections heat up (R increases) and the
voltage (E) can't go up I (amps) has to come down. This is true for
the circuit as a whole. The connector that is overheating goes into a
vicious cycle. As it gets hotter and hotter it's resistance continues
to increase. All of the P (power in watts) gets converted into heat P
= I X E. It is self-limiting because at some point the resistance will
get so high as to limit the current because the voltage can't go up.
Bottom line bad connections are to be avoided because of the problems
they cause.
