[DML] Re: not running

Pull out fuse #7 and test it with a meter. While it is removed look at
the fuse block and make sure the connectors are not overheated, loose,
or pushed back into the block. Reinsert a good 20 A fuse. Go back to
the fuel pump and pull the plug apart. Make sure you have a good,
solid ground on the black/purple wire. If you don't then follow it to
the inertia switch and see if it is good there. The inertia switch
should have a white paint splotch and the button should be down so the
red isn't showing. Now, while the motor is cranking see if you have
power on the white/purple wire. If you don't then you need to jumper
the RPM wires w/p to brown. If you still can't get voltage to the plug
by the pump you have to remove the windscreen washer reservoir bucket,
pull it down, grab and pull the wiring harnesss out and check the
large plug. If it gets corroded the fuel pump circuit which goes
through it can be interupted. For testing purposes you can just put 12
volts on the fuel
pump to see of the motor and the fuel pump actually works.
