Almost Anything that works is OK! Nice going.To put it simply, I fixed the contact race and took the 25 amps out of the braking NC'd I put to new cube relay in sweep we'll see if it changes anything. Does my idea sound OK to you?
But this is the first we have heard about 25 Amps as the contacts were opening. I even used the Search function on this thread and found nothing.
In general, relays should not overlap their contact timing unless specified when ordering. Can you give us the the part No. of the relay that was ordered, and/or the number on the box, and/or the numbers on the contact block? Any and all info will be helpful. Something very strange is going on.
Did you try replacing the MOV before making this change? If it failed it could/would show similiar symptoms.
In post #207 you stated the MOV is OK. But didn't answer my question in post #215 of how you checked it. An open failure may not be visible.
