Locate the EEC IV test port connector under the hood (near the battery) it should have a cover on it remove the cover the top has 2 ports, run a jumper wire from the bottom right port there are 4 ports "A" is the fuel pump ground port connect a test light jumper from "A" port to the positive side of battery this will energize the fuel pump until its removed. Start the car and check to make its not a fuel pump circuit problem shutting down the pump.
