so you split power to pin 30 on both relays, correct? nothing else?

after it cuts off, make sure you have spark. then pull the connector on the back of the AFM, then piull the wire off the overboost switch and check for 12v to ground there. a test light will work fine for this.
if that is good, your problem is else where.
if not good, i would check pin 30 of the yellow relay. if that is good, jumper 30 to 87a and check the boost sw wire again. if not good, its the relay under the seat.....maybe.
that realy is known for bad solder joints. you may be able to fix it.
last, jumper 1 and 2 on the under the seat relay and check the boost sw again.

now to the 'maybe". i dont have an 87 wiring diagram but i am told there is a fuse that feeds power to the under the seat relay and it is a pain to get to because it is actually in the wiring loom if i remember correctly as i was told. if you think that is it, i will call to find out more about it.
i am told they did not do this until 87.
