Ask Your Own Electric Vehicles Question

Have you checked the inputs to the fuel pump relay?

If so what is the relay missing preventing it from coming on?

Would a wiring diagram help?

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

a wire diagram would help.
If the only way to talk is throw the computer then it is easier to type
If you look down at the fuel pump relay from the front of the car
The connect nearest the front is live
I jumped it to the rear connect and the pump worked.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
if you call me will you be calling me thru computer or my phone?

I can call your phone and walk you through this diagnoses. It would be much easier that way.
