Default Car Died, Hot FPR (740)

Hey, I'm back with another problem.

This has been well discussed here, but I wanted to post to see if something jumps out at someone as obvious.

1988 740, b230ft, lh 2.2.

Scenario: drove about 120 miles in the mountains, 90* F, from around 9,000 feet to 5,000 feet. Car drove great all day, exit the freeway for my house and in the turn press on the gas and the car stutters then dies. Fires right back up and drove fine for the remaining 5 miles home. 1/2 tank of fuel by the time I got home.

Only thing that jumped out as obvious to me is all the relays, and especially the fuel pump relay and power windows relay (right next to each other), were hot.

I'll be doing some testing before work tommorow and will probably throw my back up FPR in fof the ride to work, but thought I'd post.

Thanks for any suggestions/insights and sorry for posting about a topic done to death here.
