    well, there is really only two things that can cause the fuel pump to stop working. The main relay burned out (it doesnt always have to be the bad solder points we always talk about) and melted wires between the relay and the pump....thats about it.

    Even a good main relay doesn't mean a good main relay... what a bad invention.

    Did you recently swap your ecu? If so I know the 99-01 units have a vehicle immobilizer device that shuts off the fuel pump.

    +3432545 for main relay.


    For the record, there is not separate fuse for OBD1 fuel pumps. EVER.

    I vote main relay also. I had same problem in my rex and one side of the contacts in the relay was bad. They are pricey though. Check your ground on your thermostat housing first !!!!!!!
