Fuel pump and wires at the fuel pump are a problem with these cars, not an easy job to replace the pump. Fuel pump relay is in the fuse box right rear of trunk. There may be a fuel pump inertia switch, open the driver's door at the side of the dash there is a triangular small panel that pulls off, remove it there is a relay with a button on top, press the reset button on top of the relay.
