I am glad you got the vehicle running! Yes, this website is a very valuable site which I come to at least once if not 2-3 times DAILY! I would also like to know what the problem was as well.

I was following the wires from the I switch. When I got to the relay I thought that the relay was bad, since there was only power to half of the wires. I followed the other wire from the I switch to the fire wall on the drivers side. I was slightly pulling on it and it tore in half. It apeared to be burnt [by the exhaust manifold I assume] so i tied them together and tried to fire it up. It worked out just fine. So I didnt have to replace anything. I have one last question, should I add a inline fuse and if so what size should I use ?
