What terminal on coil is pink wire added to? I suspect it would be on the terminal with green-black wire coming from ignition switch. Probably somebody wanted a keyed 12v power source for something. What terminal is pink wire going to on relay?

You can also do like me and upload to either Picassa or Photo Bucket (they will automatically downsize) and then just paste the image link in your post. It makes it much easier.

40w? 40A maybe. I would guess your pink wire supplied power to fan relay energizing coil at pin 86 when key turned on not actual 40A fuse for fan power wiring. If added relay does not have a 40A fuse in wire going to pin 30 of relay that is dangerous.

Pink wire should have a 10A fuse in it to protect relay energizing circuit.
