Customer Question
power to the switch mechanism...
power to the switch mechanism (yellow) intermittent...power to relay intermittent...main power to relay is present...fuse seems to be normal and test good.
so the relay switching power gives the relay power sometimes and then not. I am not talking about blinking I am referring to available power to operate. Seems to be a bad connection but I am unknowledgeable about which direction to look.
