Finally got a little time to look at the 930. Changing out the infamous green wire was on my list so I went ahead and did that as it could be the issue.
Then I saw THIS:

What the hell is THAT!
Some idiot has run a wire to the rear relay, socket 86, that apparently goes nowhere. It may have been stuffed into the delay relay (which I removed and jumpered as seen in the picture).
What do you think was done here and what is compromised?
According to the shop manual socket 86 is 12V power, so if this relay was not getting power and they jury rigged it to get power from the delay relay then it is no longer getting power.
What is the best way to wire around this mess and get my car started? I need to rip this backyard bull$hit out and do it over correctly.
