There is a fuel pump fuse in the under hood fuse box .... When key is turned to the on position - fuel pump relay should CLICK on for 2 seconds then CLICK off .. Relay is also located in the under hood fuse box.

A helper comes in handy for testing!

Does the relay CLICK on - then CLICK back off after 2 seconds - when the key is turned on?

That’s what I need to know next .. THEN we’ll get to the fuse.
