Well I thought I was on to something but it still isn't working.
First tried it with a 12v AGM I had kicking around. When that didn't work thought maybe it just didn't have enough juice so I hooked up the traction pack.
I'll pull it out of the car tomorrow and start following the schematic and traces and make sure I don't have any more open connections.
