okay look for the green wire that is connected to the starter motor that says "fusible link"~

cannot find the MEGA fuse....guess you don't have one~ now with the fuel delivery problem am going to suggest looking at the fuel pump relay...and the 12.5 volts that are supposed to close the contacts for that....you haven't got good ground...take a wirebrush to the lug on the end of the 1/0 black battery cable....wirebrush the spot where it connects 'till shiny....bolt them back for restored ground and things will start behaving themselves like the gas gauge and the fuel pump~ NOT bad advise~


Check the under hood fuse panel on the left side of the engine compartment near the shock tower. Use your test light to check the 10 Amp PCM fuse. Replace if bad.
