Re: [DML] Fuel Pump Problem

The removable plate you want to take off is under the spare tire.  It's pretty 
big and is there specifically to allow access to the fuel pump.  Once you have 
that off, remove the large hose clamp around the rubber cover, remove it, and 
you'll be looking at the top of the pump and all the wiring.  Check there for 
voltage.  If you have voltage there but no fuel delivery, the pump is pretty 
straight-forward to replace once you see it.

Subject: [DML] Fuel Pump Problem

 My D is not getting fuel.  It fires up with starting fluid.  I don't hear the 
fuel pump  as I believe I used to when I turn on the key.  It used to run a few 
seconds when the key is turned on, I'm pretty sure.
I see about where the tank is from a diagram in the manual.  It looks like its 
on the drivers side under the front trunk, the pump looks like it's on top of 
the tank.  I couldn't see the tank from the outside underneath, and I'm 
wondering if there's access to the pump bu taking up the removable plate in the 
trunk that has the brake fluid filler in it?  Does anyone know if I can get to 
the fuel pump this way?  Or, does the tank need to be removed to get to the fuel 

I also located the relay for the fuel pump and it seems to click when the 
ignition switch is turned.  I'd like to try jumping around the relay to make 
sure its the pump and not the relay.  Does anyone know which position on the 
relay (or relay plug) to jump to the fuel pump?
Any help would be appreciated!
