Which engine do you have in this?

Looks like the fuel pump relay gets some of the power from the PCM. Check fuse #20 in the battery fuse box and check fuse #105 in the same box. Fuse #20 should only get power with the key on or while cranking. Fuse 105 is for the start interupt relay, so make sure the security light is going out after 3 seconds with the key on.

let me know when you can.

You're welcome, remember, we are looking for power on fuse 20, not just that it's good.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.
