back to post #2:
1. Sounds like the relay is working correctly and sending the "flashing" power to the indicator bulb (black/white wire from the relay to the bulb); but I wonder if the relay might continue to send a "weak" power conncetion to the bulb? Do you have another relay that you can use for testing purposes? (I have an extra.)
It would be worth a try to take the relay apart and inspect/clean. One could try to watch it in operation when the cover is off. Then, throw it in the garbage and go buy a new relay.
