Re: [DMCForum] Re: very frustrated!! - starting problem

Perhaps the pump is stuck and shorting to ground? 

I haven't really been following the thread, but you should be able to
check the pump by applying 12v to it direct from the battery. 

With the pump unhooked, you should get 12v at the pump (+) while
cranking, and should have 0 OHMs between the negative pump wire and
chassis ground.  I recall the fuel filler nozzle and the bolts just to
the side of it are grounded.
