hotwire, fuse, toggle switch. qwik and easy, not correct or maybe even up too others "standards" but i've done it a million times, pressure is regulated on the fuel rail, so assuming you dont forget to shut it off , it wont hurt anything.

If your battery runs below 12v it cuts out the fuel pump relay and the pump won't run. Check the battery voltage and if below 12.5 volts charge the batterey

hotwire is bad bad bad only crackheads do stuped stuff like that. in the pasenger kick pannel there is a enersha switch that sometimes trigers. check oweners manual for exact location but try that then go from there, fuses under hood and in cab.then start chasing the circuit

Sat for years! I guess you drained any remants of what was formerly gasoline from the tank and inserted something a little fresher. Varnish and gum in the fuel system has to be present.
