Bad

When the controller is pulled in both the large lugs should show the same voltage to ground.

Sorry I misread it is marginal both sides of the ralay should read the same when key is on there may be a small difference but it should not be a volt difference and yes when key is off there should be voltage on 1 side you could turn key on and with a ampmeter check for a amperage draw between both large terminals when solenoid is pulled in.

Yes, you are probley correct alot of household meters amly go up to 10 amps then take your volt meter and while relay is pulled in check voltage across the 2 large lugs if the internal connection is good in the relay you should read no or very low voltage less than 1 volt but only while relay is energized.
