Option 2 seems feasible...I think I may have found the best relay...let me know if you agree: http://www.allspectrum.com/store/pro...oducts_id=1528
If you cannot get to the link, here are the specs:
Automotive RELAY, 12V DC/30A FASTON (Model # 960)
rating: 12V DC / 20-30A
operating current: ± 140mA
contact: 1 x inverter
lips: 6.35mm FASTON
Is there any relay with an operating current less than 140mA and/or will the on board computer system detect this low of a draw?
140MA is pretty low load. I am going to say it will work. But from what I have seen the new rams ECU is Temperamental as they come. I had a Volvo that had a similar ECU that did self checking voltage wattage ect. I had to use dual relay setups on alot of things to make crap work. Lol I had, 15 or so relays lined up on the side of the engine compartment. That relay looks good, make sure to cover the middle "87" point to avoid short-outs.
Edit: That relay will use approx 2.3 watts to switch over.
