My car did the same thing ('86 C-GT).  Most responses from the list were
to pull the relay and not worry about it.  That's what I had already
did.  Someday, I'll get a new whatever is needed, but not hurry.

What's a "BAP-GEON"?  I'll look for the part number.  Or try calling The
Parts Connection, talk to Rod, tell him I sent you.  The number is (800)
517-6060.  Omigod!  I know it by heart!
