awalinski : Sounds like you're now using the ground for the return current path. That's not a good thing.

You said that everthing worked after you grounded the neutral at the transformer. And that there wasn't a potential difference before grounding.

That potential difference was at the transformer but not at the relays and you just completed the loop by using the ground to carry the return current. Putting the ground on the neutral won't make the transformer to just start working it COULD just complete the ability to do its job.

Sounds like you need to look at the complete path of the neutral I think you will find a problem there.
