Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially and if have not been tried, let's review the basics using a volt/multi-meter:

  • • the fuel pump receives its IGN+12V on its blue/gray wire;
  • • this blue/gray wire is through F5, a 7.5A fuel pump fuse;
  • • this fuse in turn is fed by the IGN+12 through its red/beige wire;
  • • that is switched on by the main relay;
  • • the main relay in turn is powered by an always available red/gray wire from the 30A main fuse from the battery's red wire;
  • equally important to the +12V checks as above described, the fuel pump's black/blue wire must be switched to ground by the ECM.
