we have Joy.
This morning the ambient temp when I left the house for work was ~35*F at 0500. The car started in less than a 2 count. I will pay close attention for a while, but looks like I will order a fresh OVP.
In my haste I was looking for the "quick" fix. Thanks for pushing me to the long fix Steve, looks like the long fix was actually much quicker (but I do believe you've said that a time or two before).
I spent some time looking over the OVP I pulled from the car. The only thing I noticed was that the red top was a little loose on the body. I'm thinking moisture might have gotten inside the relay. The original cold start issue began with the temperature change, which was accompanied by rain. I think I will dissect the old OVP and see if there is any visible evidence.
