[DML] Re: DeLorean died and will not restart

I had this problem a week after getting my car.  It ended up being 
the fuel pump.  

If the fuse is good and the interia switch is in the right position, 
by-pass the RPM relay and see if you hear the pump running. I think 
you can find a by-pass diagram on the SpecialTAuto web site.

If no pump noise, use a voltmeter at the power connections to the 
pump.  I had voltage there, meaning everything upstream was fine... 
pump was not fine.
