Fuel pump on 1997 BMW 328i

How to check if fuel pump is working?

Asked by for the 1997 BMW 328i
One of the things you can do without tools is You can hear a vibration/drone from fuel tank area when the key is turned to on position. this is the sound when the pump is priming. then at least you know that power and ground to the pump works. but may need to check fuel pressure and volume to gauge how well its working.
