I DO HOW DOES THIS ANSWER HELP ME
Auto Mechanic: Mike S., Mechanic replied 2 years ago

It wasn't an answer. See the question mark after that sentence. Was the website or email telling you you had an answer?

I am going to get the wiring diagram so I can tell you what to test and which do you have or both a voltmeter or 12 volt test light?

I have both
Auto Mechanic: Mike S., Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Sorry, I had already laid down for bed by the time you replied last night.

Remove the ecc power relay and let m know of you have battery voltage (12 volts) to one of the terminals in the ecc relay socket all the time. Same thing with the fuel pump relay.

Also tell me if fuses 1 and 4 have power to both sides of them all the time. then turn the key to run and let me know if the ignition coil has voltage to the white/light blue wire.

Auto Mechanic: Mike S., Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Did a new fuse link M work?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
where still working there are 2 wires going to negative side of battery and my mechanic says they should be on postive side which i disagree because they have always been there when it ran
Auto Mechanic: Mike S., Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Well, you had better get that figured out because it may be what either caused that fusible link to blow or it actually is the same wire as the fusible link.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Auto Mechanic: Mike S., Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I'm in western pa and it's like 11 degrees outside.

Did you replace that fusible link M yet and if so do you finally have voltage to the fuel pump relay now?
