2 options: 1) do it yourself with a wiring diagram and a test light 2) find a good, honest Merc expert- you will need one, eventually-


You can try and replace the fuel pump relays and check your fuses........

Change the fuel pump relay. I believe it's on the firewall. If you already changed the fuel pumps, the relay should be changed with it.
