Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, proposed preliminary checks (if have not been done):

  • • check if fuel gauge works - this would indicate if the fuel pump's ground wire is good;
  • • or better yet verify that the fuel pump's brown wire is tied to a good ground;
  • • check red/black wire to fuel pump from splice of several red/black wires;
  • • ensure presence of IGN+12V on this red/black wires.
