ok. give me a few. i need to pull up some info...thanks

Expert:  david craig replied 7 months ago.

gain access to the fuel pump relay. on the same panel, if there is another relay that is the same, try swapping them and see if that helps.

Expert:  david craig replied 7 months ago.

if not then you will need a multimeter to check for power and ground
