Fuel Pump/Relay ?
In another thread I suggested a member try unplugging his fuel pump relay to see if it would help with possible flooding/no start condition. So today I decided to try this on my son'* 89 to see if the car would start & if so how long it would run without the fuel pump. I was sure shocked when it started & kept running & running & running. After a little tinkering I decided all that relay does is control the 2 second prime. I'm at a loss as to where the power comes from if you don't need the relay. I have a wiring diagram & it doesn't look like it should run without the relay. Anyone know how this works?
