Porsche Relay Hot Wire Fix
Step 1 - Solder Wire to Relay
Solder a wire to the hot connection. Use a zip tie to tie the wire to the relay. This will reduce the stress applied to the solder connection when it is being handled.
Step 2 - Connect wire to power source
Create a wire with the complementary connection and connect to the hot side of the fuse box.
Step 3 - Defective Relay Connection
The proper fix would be to replace the wire harness, but that is a lot of work. This fix will have to do for now. Notice bad power connector. This is why we have to get power from a different source.
Step 4 - Connect Relay to Power Source
Using the connector, plug the relay into the power source wire.
Step 5 - Plug Relay into Relay Connector
With power wire connected, plug relay into the connector. The connector is usually mounted in the fuse box housing, but is pull out for clarity.
