HI,

HI,

Ok, give me a few minutes to pull the schematics

Expert:  Eric replied 2 months ago.

HI,

Ok, the first things to check are the fuel pump fuse, which is fuse #1 in the engine compartment fuse box. Alot of times it will blow when replacing the fuel pump.

If ok, then swap the fuel pump relay with another relay. It is in the same fuse box

I have attached the fuse box layout for you with fuse and relay highlighted in yellow

HI,

Ok, remove the fuel pump relay and while you turn the key to crank, have him check the voltage at each cavity where the fuel pump relay plugs in.

There should be voltage at 3 of them. IF not, I need to know which ones doesnt have voltage
