So I'm skipping URO and anything off of ebay for a new OVP.

Ok, so what about beck-arnley? Anyone use this brand:

Amazon.com: Beck Arnley 203-0189 Relay: Automotive

If this is garbage, what is the OEM brand that would be carried by the dealerships? I've been looking for part #2015403745 but this does not seem to limit it to any particular brand.

Update: So tonight, I decided to hunt down the OVP in my car. What I found was the 10A fuse was blown, so I replaced the fuse and put it back in the car. The first thing I found out was the "check engine" light actually does come on before you start the car. I had never seen it come on EVER before, even after checking the bulb. The other thing is now the ABS light is now on constantly. I'm not too sure about the SRS light because I pulled the bulb when I was working the odometer since it was always on before.
Driving the car, it seems the acceleration is much improved, just replacing the fuse, so now I'm really thinking I should replace the whole darn thing, and see if it takes care of the difficult cold start issue, where it takes two to ten times to start the car when it's been sitting overnight.

I haven't replaced the OVP yet but the car now will start on the first try most of the time.

I can't wait to get a new one because the car just died on the way home yesterday, and would not start for about 30 seconds (crank, no fire).
