Ive changed the fuel pump and main relay all fuses are good but no power to fuel pump
Expert:  Pete replied 10 months ago.

Test and see if you have power at fuse 2 in the under dash fuse panel (15 amp) and power at fuse 33 (15 amp) in the under hood fuse panel with the key on and let me know.

I dont see a way to bypass the pump circuit unless you installed a toggle switch which could be done and I could tell you how to do this but it isnt recommended.

Thanks Pete
