correct...I asked him if all other electrical items were functioning- but I didn't directly ask about the windows!....just forgot. Although, he noted-as the car would run and then die due to the drop in voltage of the pump, the dome lights would also grow dim as the voltage dropped...I inspected the car pretty good before I bought to watch out for a flood car, he said he saw no sighns what so ever of it getting wet...Electrical gremlins suck! He'* pretty sharp mechanic and he is really baffled.

The car is running, my wallet is way lighter...to the original author FOX...it was a grounding problem at the master fuse box where all the electrical components meet on the drivers side....they were able to hold tight this massive bundle of wires and note normal operation of everything. They stated they actually created a "second grounds line" (duct tape and gum probably) anyway...They didn't charge me anything for the fuel pump replacement (remember mine did originally show that is was good like you state yours is/but not enough juice to make it start properly)I'm sure they made up $$$'* on the diagnotisc end of the bill. So, think ground and good luck-thanks to others for input.
