Hi,It is extremely common for the fuel pump housing on this model to create a high resistance point where the connector from the harness plugs in across the housing to the bottom side. This results in deformation of the connector but more importantly eventually creates a voltage drop on the pump housing preventing pump operation eventually.What exactly is your question about this condition?
