bear with me. back as quick as possible

Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

well unsure if you pinched a wire , did not plug something in etc, but the power is sent to the inertia switch from the fuel pump relay which is inside of a module call the CCRM, It is located at left front of engine compartment, that module is called the constant relay module, It sends power on the black and pink wire to the intertia switch, It could be bad, we have changed many of them over the years, You can jump 12 volts to the black/pink wire at the inertia switch which will power the pump, Here are a couple links to look at

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ive tired jumping 12 volts straight to the pump still didnt kick on
Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

you said you jumped but did not know hots or gounds, I mentioned to jump to the inertia switch on the lack/pink, still no pump? and if nothing done at or around the pump? then the pump has to be bad, you jump direct as I mentioned, it shas to come on

Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

Can you post your VIN for me?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't have vin cars in the shop at the moment ok it's ending in 3
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 1 year ago.

I suspect you have an issue with the constant control relay module or a wiring issue going to it. It needs to have 4 powers going into it with the key on and cranking. Black/white, white/green, white/green and blue/yellow wire all need to have power.

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 1 year ago.

The black/yellow wire needs to have a good ground on it.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do you have a diagram of the plug on the fuel pump that tells me witch pins are hot and witch are grounds
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 1 year ago.

You bet! Here it is!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
