I'm pretty sure that I'll eventually have to drop the tank, if only to clean out whatever has accumulated in there after sitting idle for so long. BUT, since I'm not in any particular hurry, I would like to prove the pump is bad before spending on a replacement. I'm trying to eliminate all the possibilities first.
I really do appreciate any and all suggestions. Bare with me though, I have next to no experience with troubleshooting any vehicle's electric problems.
So, C Beers, could you explain how I would put a jumper on the relay please?
Driller, looking at fuel pump images, I see that connector you're talking about. I'll get to that eventually as I work my way back.
I would still like to find the mysterious fuel system ground that's supposed to be at the emergency brake assembly. Then I can either clean it up or rule it out as the problem.
As I type this, and talk to myself, I'm beginning to think I should drop the tank and put a multimeter on that connector to establish whether or not power is even getting to the fuel pump. Or is there another way?
