Hi, Yes jumping r and g is a good way of taking the thermostat and t stat wiring out of the equation. If jumping them fixes the promblem then you have an issue outside the airhandler, or with regd green connections to the board.

you should be checking for an intermitten open in the red to green circuit, not a short.
