Do you mean the clear "ice cube" one or one of the smaller black relays ? On machine tools those ice cube types are always plugged into a socket so slightly annoying this one is soldered on, as otherwise I could simply switch it with a known good one to see.
I guess the theory is the plug in type might vibrate loose on a generator but they typically fit so tight in their sockets I doubt that would be an issue really.
Flight Systems tech said it is probably a bad relay on the board but asking them might be a bit like asking an auto transmission shop about a noise that may or may not be coming from your car transmission !
Regardless I went ahead and ordered a new board from them.... they are not the cheapest on that board but figured if that turns out to NOT be the problem maybe they would be best to guide me what else to look for.
