So driving on the road the other day my gas pedal stopped working, after tinkering around i found that my FP fuse had blown. Replaced it attempted to start with no luck and checked fuse...blown again. Got towed home and i am now trying to figure out what is going on.
According to the previous owner. This pump was replaced at 102k and the car currently has 136k on it.
I referenced SJM and ran the relay check on pins 46-50 and 48-50 on the fuel pump relay and got a readout of 11.94V I want to see +12V but my battery was weak from running flashers for 2 hours while waiting for a tow.
I also ran 46-47 and attempted to crank the car. I read 8.9V and i want at least 9.5 again this could be from a weak battery.
I checked continuity at the top electrical connection to the fuel pump and 3 out of 4 wires where showing good. 1 wire. The purple/black color was showing nothing.
I also turned the car and same case. I was getting 9.4-9.8V at 3/4 wires. Same wire with nothing.
Im not too knowledgeable about the FP on this car so im not sure if 3/4 is okay or if i am getting a short somewhere. I would like to eliminate that before i purchase a new pump.
I know i can bypass the Relay to turn on the pump, But im not sure if that is safe to do if my pump is in fact shot.
