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

Okay - I didn't bother test starting it because with the jumper (a
godd one) in place and a full battery I'm getting 9.5volts at the
pump.  I do not hear the pump either (with ignition turned or off). 
I might replace the new pump with my old one to check to see if I
get a different result (I don't think my old pump was ever broken, I
just replaced it as a revamp)  - should I even bother with that?  SO
I'm pretty sure that the relay is bad becasue I get no voltage when
it is place and at least I get 9.5 when I have the jumper in place.
I hope to have some more info by tomorrow evening...  :)
