I found the connector under the driver'* side rug and pulled the groung bar out of it with a pair of pliers.
It looked absolutely clean with no corrosion whatsoever.
I sanded it down anyway, so it was nice and shiny, and put it back.
I don't think this plug was a problem cause it looked brand new.
I did notice the padding under the capet was soaked with water. I attributed this to the fact that the car was left outside in a torrential downpour. My window might have been open a little and this is how the rug got soaked. The day after this rainstorm is when the problems arose.
I tried to leave the car in the sun all weekend to dry out the padding but that stuff is hard to get dry!
I also know that my trunk lets in rain water as well for some reason.
1.) Knowing that the ground bar plug looked perfect, is there anyplace else I can check to make sure the fuel pump is getting grounded properly?
2.)Could getting water soaked into the carpet like this (either in the driver'* side floor or trunk) cause these problems?
3.)Where else does the fuel pump ground to, if anywhere?
Thanks again for your help!
