Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. What is the battery voltage at with the key in the CRANK position?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Havent tried that. Founnd loose wire at starter. Now run when put power direct to fp (fuel pump) connection on dianosis connector. Ran for a few minutes then had to replace open circuits relay but just stalls out after driving about ten miles. Fuel pump running nonstop while power from battery to that fp connection. Why would it run a while then stall?
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

That is different than a NO CRANK condition. It sounds to me like you have two seperate issues..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We found starter wire disconnected now fuel pump works when given direct power but and starts then dies but starts and runs for a while aftrr replacing open circuits relay.
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

Ok, so does the engine remain running on starting fluid?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Its running on fuel from tank. But even though fuel pump is pushing fuel, it stalls out after a few mile drive. I replaced the open circuit relay and it started and ran a nother few miles then died.

Starting fluid works to make it start.

Hi, I'm DJ.

Let's try putting a jumper in the DIAGNOSIS box. This box is next to the fuse box under the hood.

Inside the lid is a chart that shows what each of the terminals is.

I just use a paper clip bent into a U shape and stick one leg of the paper clip in FP and the other in B+.

This will bypass a couple of components and turn on the fuel pump whenever the key is in the RUN position.

Try this and let me know if the engine keeps running and drives OK.
