Since the RAT temp previous to this flight climbed to 90C on a couple of occasions before this incident on the ground it sounds like a bad receptical for R2-5 making the relay fail to air mode intermittently might have caused the problem. Probably a little corrosion causing a bad contact for the relay coil that energizes the relay. These are the hardest problems to diagnose because they go away when the contacts are making contact.
