I think if its a short it will be between the relay and the pump. Im not going to rule the pump out though. I did remove the harness to the pump and as stated the fuse kept popping still. But the pump may be the problem. But want that as a last resort do to they are $300 .. Hope to find the problem. I will be checking everything tomorrow. I am using my GF'* car and hoping to find resolve with this
I do belive there is a short somewhere so that will be my starting point is tracking wires down. But need to get a new relay and restart my detecting points in hopes to get it figured out.
Thanks for the advice on it
