GET a NEW battery as batteries will be NO good after five years and start playing hell with the alternator....wirebrush the end of the black cable and the chassis ground where it connects~ proper voltage and amperage will be restored and the ECU will have a chance to get it right~ fuel pumps do not die a little at a time...but dodgey GROUNDING does cause this to appear~ this most important of GROUND points services the ignition, fuel system and all instruments and get 'er clean~!
