So I thought you were right.  I went and got a new battery and hooked it up.  The relay worked and it pressurized... and it died as soon as I tried to kick it over.  I put the battery on the Battery Tender overnight and got the exact same response last night.

I think there is an electrical problem.  Damn, I don't have time to figure this out before track day tomorrow :(

I recharged it last night.  Today the battery is fully charged, but when I turn on the kill switch I don't hear the fuel injectors pressurize -- and I do get a fast clicking sound.

Is it likely this box is dead, or more likely that it's trying to fire up something else which is dead or possibly disconnected by accident when I was cleaning up?
