Yet more AE HELP...

I followed the fastm.com guide. but my AE's wont turn on with the car (always on)

But however if i touch the footwell light wire to the positive terminal the AE's Light up!.. So it leads me to believe that my wire tap in the ECU is not good right?... it doesn't seem to be the case, cause i'm 90% sure my tap is good. and when i plug the wire in the tap (ECU) i hear a click in the relay box, but still nothing when i put the key into the 2nd position.

I was on the phone with SolidJake for about 15 min's going through troubleshooting. He seems to think its a "bad" relay... As im starting to think that too.

Where did you mount your relay? I had a problem with where I mounted mine (I followed the fastm.com guide also...) so I let it just hang loose in that area. Everything worked after the relay was "let loose."
