Gents, thanks for the help! I ohm'd the coils and they were extremely close, nitrous to nitrous and fuel to fuel, so the eliminated the suspected coil issue. Inspected al wiring and found no issues there, supply and ground are both 10ga wire. Did a little shop testing and with the 20 amp fuse it would consistently blow, installed a 30 amp fuse and it has not blown yet. I will be upgrading relay and fuse set up. Again thanks for the help and for the explanation on volts vs. amps vs. watts. This old boy just needs a little motivation to dig into things a little further and you guys never let me down!

I just meant to say that a little testing goes along way ,he didnít know so why not do a little testing , it really sucks when shit melts down especially if your doing a 150+ down the track and he learned something too

I find it odd that a 40 amp relay only has terminals that are rated for 20 amps, and typical ATO fuse holders are even worse offenders.

I agree most relays are overated and a lot of connectors are junk, couple that
with poor crimping practices and then the terminals stretch out once things have
been taken apart a time or two and its no wonder a lot of guys have intermittent
wiring issues.

always worthwhile to go the extra mile when doing this stuff especially on high
current devices like noids.

THIS IS A GOOD TOPIC SHARE INFO GUYS

Here is a pretty good tutorial on simple circuits.
Substitute devices (solenoids) for resistors and have at it.

FYI. We have no issues since we went to the Go Lithium 16V single Battery. Induction Solutions systems (4) & Leash Pro8 Controller. I do not think your issue relates to the 16V battery. Good luck.

And this is why airplanes use fairly high voltage, to keep the wiring size down yet still be able to do the same amount of work.........
