I want to install a few tiny fans to blow on the relays in the engine bay. I have had issues with them overheating and shutting down everything. The car is black and I live in California so things get HOT. I also blow the fuel pump fuse often when things shut down.
I have replaced relays with some higher amperage ones and also stuck on heat-sinks that tend to help. I want to wire up a few fans to blow on things while the engine is running.
Where can I find the best power for them. NOTE: I no longer have the air suspension so those wires may be of use.

Brown/Yellow wire that feeds the fuel injectors.

Half of the big fat plugs under the fuse box are only supplied with the ignition on.
I made a spreadsheet for that..just don't know how to post it here.

If the relays & fuses are overheating, then they must have bad connections. RL6 & RL7 are know to get too hot, but surely these could be replaced with higher capacity relays ?

Fitting fans to the fuse box can only mask issues, until it fails completely later.
