    It's x-mas and I just found out at 8:00 last night the relay on my Boss V is fried. I shorted it out with a screw driver just so I could raise it off the ground last night. What fun, it's supposed to start snowing today until the next couple of days. I hope I can track down a new relay.

    Any suggestions, can I bypass the relay for a temp fix?

    Now that I think about it; it must be the positive solenoid.

    Well it's snowing pretty hard now, 11:38 in Colorado.

    Is it a negative trigger solenoid? Basically the relay is a starter solenoid,but starters are positive trigger solenoids. Take the small trigger wire off your relay and have some one trigger the controls and see if you get - Ground or + Hot power out of the wire which triggers the solenoid. All my Myer setups have - trigger solenoids which NAPA or larger auto parts stores should have.
