    Hey, you did good! I used a bunch of old fuse box circuit expanders that were reformed and able to be used on the old glass fuses (picture attached.) We used to use them to add stereos back in the day when extra circuits were not available.

    (I apologize for not replying promptly. Life threw me a bunch of curves. One of the curves was a computer crash!)

    Computer crash? That's right up my alley. I'm a PC Repairman. Lol. Yeah man. The mod is holding up great. Not long ago, about 8 months ago I had to desolder the fuel pump relay from the circuit board and solder in a new FP relay. Quite a headache. But I got the job done.

    Curious, was the fuel pump relay the only one soldered in? Or were they all soldered in?

    There are 5 relays that are soldered in.

    Sounds like the OP beefed it up and it worked. That's what would do the first time. Sometimes I solder a jumper wire or run wire along the trace to beef it up a lot.

    If later failure I would just solder wires to the terminal pads on the board and run wires to the outside to a full size 4 or 5 prong relay holder and glue it to side of module box.
