first trip the inertia switch.100% sure the fuel pump fuse has 12 volts?now,pull the fuel pump relay out of the socket.look at the bottom of the relay,and see where pin 30 is.insert a paper clip gently into pin 30 on the relay socket.check voltage on paper clip and a good ground with the test leads,should have battery voltage there.then if you do,bend paper clip to jump from pin (30) to pin (87),go to the inertia switch,check the green/yellow wire on inertia switch,pos lead in back of connector(insert another paper clip if needed)neg lead to a good ground.should have battery voltage on that wire.then push the red button down until it clicks,do the same test on the pink/blk wire on inertia switch,should have battery voltage,this is the wire going to the fuel findings.
