[DML] Re: Dead fuel pump?

Well I tested my fuel pump after removing it, it works perfect so 
than I moved onto jumping the RPM relay as instucted. After jumping 
the RPM relay still nothing happend. So than I cleaned the 
connectors between the fuel pump and the harness, the negative 
energy connector is still black where the positive is gold colored 
bright than the day it was brand new, still nothing happend. Im a 
little worried about the status of the connector since one of the 
two pins is nearly uncleanable (the negative). I than checked the 
Inertia switch to see if it was tripped, it wasnt. but following the 
advice from Don at DMC garden groove I removed the inertia box to 
see if it was melted or not. There I found the box to be partially 
melted where the connectors are on the box and slight damage to the 
harness connectors to the box from the very same heat.

aside form all this I found my #13 fuse to be bad, and to be honest 
im not sure what #13 does on a manual tranny DMC. 

So if theres any further tests I can do please advise me, id be much 
appreciated. Id like for a way just to proove that 100% of the 
problem was due to the inertia switch box.
