So, the original power lead was disconnected from GP five, in addition (which I did not do) I should pull the plug from the factory relay to deactivate and try that? I wired the GP per your comments in the previous post. The original relay must still be powered and because the power lead to GP 5 was disconnected it was draining in this manner . . . .this seems to make sense. Thanks for all your help Kerry! James

Update!

Got curious and put a test light between neg battery terminal and neg ground wire . . . light lit bright, damn! Decided to reverse wiring on the two large poles of Ford style relay -check neg terminal again, no light, hurray! Apparently, there is a difference between the two poles in spite of no markings - lesson learned, hope this helps someone else attempting the same. Will check battery again in the morning to ensure no drain overnight -

Thank God, battery held charge all night -yes, there is a difference between the two poles on a Ford type starter relay solenoid -many told me there is no difference - ha! Now back to our regular scheduled programming . . .
