Since it had no fuel in it, your fuel lines and pump are probably slugged.varnished up. WIthout replacing all of your fuel system, I'd have it towed to a local garage and have them check it out for you. The electrical might be a ground or another wire that is corroded. You might save some money in the short term.


When you turn the key to accessory, can you hear the fuel pump start to run?


Just checked and i do not hear fuel pump at all.


You need to figure out why the pump isnt kicking on. Could be a bad pump, but id check your fuel pump fuse first, then work your way back to the pump electrically.


Checked fuses all good wires seem fine so thinking time for a fuel pump. : - (
