so in theory if i jump 30 to 87 it should be a direct line to the compressor and power it up as long as the knob is turned to A/C?

So if no voltage at the connector on the compressor the path back is to the relay correct? The book has it to a diode first then the relay but on the side of the relay it has a diagram as if the diode is built into the relay. Is that how it works? 30 87 86 85 87a which should have voltage?
