I ran into a situation that my 6513 at far over highway max turned 
off the engine.
My fuel pump did not work after that too.
I noticed the following:
- vacuum line from engine to ECU popped off,
- fuse (20A, accessories)defective, 
- coil to distributor wire popped off of the coil, 
- inertia switch was activated.
Especially the last issue was puzzling since it only should activate 
if the car went over.
Of course we did check the RPM relay and test powered the pump 
directly (no problems after the inertia switch was set in its 
intended position).

Since my car ran a bit awkward I later also looked at the frequency 
valve. It did not vibrate, so was not working. Turned out that DMCH 
while servicing "forgot" to reconnect the GND wire....

Look at all of these.
