the relay and fuse are in the power distribution box under the hood. as far a by pass you still can use an aftermarket electric pump ,however the cost will be about the same as re3moving the old pump in the tank if that is the cause in the first place. if all you need is the relay replaced then i'm sure that the pump is still good. if the pump is bad then make sure if you by pass the in tank pump that the new under hood electric pump has enough pressure to give the needed gpm(gallons per minute) required for your system and that if wired into the current fuel circuit that you dissconnect the wire harness to your tank pump

The wires should be grey, orange and black, purple, and a black wire. The purple goes to purple, grey to gray. The orange and black goes to the small black wire on your car harness and the black goes to the bigger black.

SOURCE: fuel pump relay gets hot on a 1995 s10 blazer

Most likely a bad connector on relay or the fuel sock needs to be replaced. if the sock is plugged it would cause the fuel pump to work hard and cause it to heat the relay and make it hot and removing it will cause it not to run. check the connectors to the relay see if they are opened up in the female socket if they are use a dental pick to close them up with. otherwise replace fuel pump and sock at that age with the alcohol in fuel it's killed the pump and sock.

What could be the problem

Pull the pump out and see if just running 12 volts across it gets it to work. If that happens then it is not the pump at all but more likely fuse board or even the body computer.

Need color code on new connector

Just did my fuel pump on the 2001 isuzu rodeo. Well here is what you need to do about the different wire colors. First disconnect your negative battery. Drop the fuel tank and replace pump. Remember to have a splice kit in hand. Ok now here is how you connect the different colored wires. Black goes with black. Gray goes with black and orange wire. Purple goes wit blue and yellow. And the last wires goes together. I hope this helps.

I have a 83 280zx non-turbo which quit running. Heard pulsating noise at fuel pump relay (kicking in and out) under dash passenger side. Replaced relay, still does same thing. Replaced water temperature...

You need to replace the fuel filter. Also the age of the car warrants replacing the fuel pump too. If its drawing high amps the relay will fail. Straight wiring a fuel pump is a safety concern. A fire or explosion hazard exist due to arcing at fuel pump motor. Yes it is inside the fuel tank and is very old. Replace it.

Fuel tank wire harness

My schematic lies to me a lot but here it is: dark blue:goes to gauge, dark green with red stripe is pump power and black is ground.
Hot wire should have 12v, dark blue should have pulsing voltage and black should be absolute ground.
