[DML] What went wrong?

The previous Thread of mine regarding a dead fuel pump had a  lot of 
great input and advice from the DML community, DMC garden groove and 
a So. Cal owner with some good ideas. for that I thank you all. 
Unfortunatley the problem still persists that I cant get my fuel 
pump to work, but in light of that I present the following steps and 
measures taken to get me to where im at know on what I do know.

1. #7 fues is not bad
2. the fuel pump works, I tested it outside the car on 12 volt.
3. I had a loose ground plug BUT it does not belong to my fuel pump
4. The front wiring harness makes contact with the + and - ends of 
the fuel pump. so that rules out that I have a severed line on that.
5. The Main harnes makes contact from the connection in the water 
bottle housing to the ground connection where the inertia switch is 
located. with that said my ground connection is good all the way. 
6. The Pump did not run with the RPM Relay jumped and again with the 
RPM relay and the inertia switch jumper and again with the RPM relay 
jumped and a ground to the frame.

And now some light on my problem..
7. All connections on my RPM relay received 11.75 Volts, except when 
the Brown wire is jumped to the Purple/White for the fuel pump my 
voltometer reported a dead 0.01. same thing with the testing needles 
testing the lines themself without the jumper in-place.

So this whole time the devious problem has been positive power flow. 
But why? Why is there now power going thru that one wire when every 
other line gets power. 

The only other test that I can think of performing is checking to 
see is the signal gets from the conenction point on the RPM relay 
down to the connection point where the main harness hooks up to the 
front harness inside the water washer fluid box. 

Im about out of idea's here, ONce agian any and all help would 
greatly be appreciated.
