Checked all the maxi fuses. But did not do so under the dash. Could do that here in a few. Coils were good. Ill pull passenger side and driver side covers and check fuse'*.

When I say all maxi fuses. I check the two that were suggested earlier. Ignition and something else. They were good.....

Where is BillBoost when you need him. TechTed, about how many amps do you think would be needed?

The wiring diagrams I have are not for the 97. They must have used different colors over the years. One diagram shows the pink/black coming from a fuse (doesn't give amperage). Another shows it coming from the fuel pump relay protected by a 20 amp fuse.

James - can you hear the fuel pump when trying to start.

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the 97'*?

You should not really get a fuel smell. When you turn the key to the on position, you should hear a hi pitch shound from the back of the car. It will last for 3-5 seconds and stop automatically.

I listened and didnt hear it. Come to think of it Ive never heard that sound. Would I have to get under or near the gas tank to hear it while someone puts it in run.???

I would get a fused link and try it. I you have a fuse and spare wire laying around, have at it. I would try 5 amp fuse and see what it does. Let me see if I can get a hold of Bill.

Wouldn't it be much easier to test the fuel pump test lead on the wire with the green connector behind your battery
