Alright, well the pump relay started clicking yesterday and the car would at times bog almost like a miss. I changed the relay today and its still clickin and boggin. Now at times its fast and then it clicks slow. Anyone have this issue?

jump the fuel pump connector under the hood and see if it stops. if it does its your vaf or vaf connector most likely.

Mine does that too! Does it sound like its coming from the rear? Can you please explain a little more on the "jump the fuel pump connector"... as in directions?

id take pics, but i cut it off my harness :lol:

there's a two wire plug over by the green self test connector. jump from one side to the other and it will make the fuel pump turn on anytime the car is in the on/start position.

lol, I dont think I have a "green" connector. I looked on the drivers side and I didnt see one? Could it be another color? I have a empty "white" one...?

wow, I was almost upset on that one! The wiring on this car is butchered! So what if it is 2 prong? I am interested to know?

Well I looked throught some wiring diagrams last night and traced that it grounds thru the VAF and the pump. Checked VAf connector and it was loose, not enough to cause the sensor to take inaccurate readings but not enough to ground the relay.

I was looking for the white wire and I found a white wire right next to the special green one. AND.... I did have the special suspension before because I DO have the "4" prong white plugs and no electronic strut tower, Somebody had there way with my car before I got her... :(
