The pcm turns the relay on. It supply's a ground to it not power. One large and one small terminal should have constant power to them. As soon as the key is turned on the pcm grounds the other small terminal which should turn on the other large terminal. That is unless the engine is up to operating temp then the pcm will not call for it.

i feel like there are other things to do before we can tell if it is the PCM. seems like there may be a simplier fix to fiqure out why the GPR isnt getting the right voltage. it may just be the fuse. but does anyone know if it could be a bad ground someone on the PCM possibly?

Use a test light, find the small terminal that is hot, if neither is hot find the blown fuse in the power distribution box, I don't remember which one it is. Make sure that one of the large terminals is hot. If you are good to this point disconnect the other small terminal that didn't have power and hook the test light to the wire and the other end to a battery positive (since the pcm supplies a ground) turn on key and see if test light turns on. There is a sensor that tells the pcm the engine temp and that may be bad. Only way to fix the pcm is replace it and if that becomes necessary the new pcm needs to be flashed to the code of your old one. I'm not saying pcm's don't go bad but it is rare.
