Re: [DML] Re: Something is wrong

To see if the fuel pump is really working, you need a multimeter. Hook it 
up to the wire harness at the fuel pump. If you get voltage while cranking, 
then the electronics are fine. If you aren't getting voltage (or low 
voltage), try grounding the meter at a good ground point. If you now get 
full voltage, it means your inertia switch is defective. If you still don't 
get full voltage, then you have a problem somewhere on the positive side of 
the circuit. Check the #7 fuse and look for any melted wiring.

A lot of people overlook the inertia switch when troubleshooting this type 
of problem. The pre-recall switches are defective and will stop your fuel 
pump (which has happened to me).
