    check all your fuses? check power to the ignition, power to the coil, power to the starter and solenoid?
    I freakin hate electrical problems!:dizzy:

    Do the headlights work? Check your batter connections and clean them. Make sure you have a good ground. The dome light might have just enough of a connection to work but a bigger drain may not.

    ok so we got the new battery in, found blown fuse link & replaced, now i have no fuel pressure. thought it was the pump the tank was rusted bad so we replaced the pump, sending unit, and tank still nothing replaced the f/p relay. still nothing, ive got .6 voltes on 1 wire and .42 volts on the other. I belive there needs to be atleast 2 volts @ the pump? also the guage is reading 3/4 of a tank but the tank is empty!! Also if you jump the relay you get nothing but if you pull off the batteery the pump will run.. Any ideas?

    true but not necessarily all that safe, nothing to shut off the pump after an accident. iniertia sw. oil press. sw.

    works great till you're out plowing at 3:00 am and get smaked by a drunk. fuel line breaks, pumps still running,you're unconsious?: thas a no good

    or possibly not having the circuit running off a relay. 20+ year old fuel tank starts clogging the filter after how many hours pushing. possibly short to ground on a non protected circuit. amperage draw?:yow!:
