interesting AC problem

The AC in my urQ died a couple of weeks ago, and I finally got it into the
shop.  It turns out that the relay in the glove box had died (now, there's
a big surprise).  This apparently had caused high temperature and pressure
in the system, which in turn had caused a safety plug to blow open, venting
the Freon.  So far it seems to work fine with a new relay and a recharge.

This reminds me of the hot-relay problem so many have reported.  I was
looking under the hood to figure the best place to get power and add a
relay to power the fan.  Any recommendations?  TIA.
