[DML] Re: Dead fuel pump?

The place to start would be the plug going to the fuel pump. Test for
12 Volt power and a good ground. If you have both the pump is dead. If
you do NOT have both you have to figure out why. Since you say the
inertia switch has been bypassed I would make sure. Don't forget the
connector plug up inside the windscreen washer bottle. They do corrode
and a bad connection there will kill the fuel pump.
