I have read several theories on the problem but since it has never caused a problem I have stayed lazy. I sure hope your solution works well. That will get me moving.

Ditto, and I have the second relay that's wired to the starter relay, although it's taken 2, I never remember 4. I figured is was a stuck relay not fully engaging. I since I have 2 relays, it could be either one.
