      I attached some picts.
      If you ground a green cable at relay, you will hear pump noise when the
      ignition is on. If you don't hear, check the voltage at the fuse.
      If you do not get voltage there, it will be a bad fuel pump relay or a main
      relay.
      If you get voltage, it will be the pump.

      You can check the fuel pump by jumping the fuel pump directory to a 12 volt
      source.
