I found this from another owner with a similar problem. I plan to pull the 15 amp flasher fuse first, then try to replace the hazard flaher unit relay. The hazard flasher unit needs to be replaced. I've taken the knee bolster off, removed the hood release lever, but I can't get the electrical connector unplugged, nor can I get to the flasher retaining screw to remove it. Any suggestions?

Dan, First of all, rubber does not last forever. The hoses on this unit are almost, if not already 20 years old. You need to go through the pressure lines, vacuum lines, coolant lines with about $200 and replace as many as you can. If not, you are just asking for problems. Second, the pump will not generate to much pressure, the pressure regulator will. It is on the fuel rail. Third, if the pressure were too high, it might smoke black smoke as the fuel/air ratio would be too rich, not run faster. The throttle body position regulates that. Fix the leak and check the pressure. It is a bomb waiting for ignition. Deal with the other issues after that.
Never disconnect the battery when car is running. I know that used to be the old way to check if alternator was working, but that was before electronics became the norm on vehicles. On today's vehicles, or any with a computer in it, disconnecting the battery with key on, or engine running, there is too great a chance you could fry the delicate electronic circuits that the computer requires. Always turn key off before disconnecting the battery. Okay, enough soap-boxing. You need a new alternator, if the car won't run with battery disconnected. Next time, use a volt meter.
it sounds like you have a bad connection on the left headlight either the earth or the power wire,check the connector on the headlight bulb plus all the other wiring & connector plugs.....hope this helps.....cheers.
hi sounds like you have a loose terminal on the battery try tightening them up really tight and see if that helps. if not look for a loose or partly broken wire as that may cause it too. The only other thing it can be is starter motor on its way out, check the wires are tight on it, if they are it may need tested by an auto electrician or replaced
did you check out the battery cables,some times they can get corrosion inside where it cant be seen and cause a short, and lack of output and sonetimes will mess with the charging system.it happend on my 87.
Replace the fuse with a flasher and test light. Then disconnect wires one at a time, that go to the different running lights, in order to find out which one is shorting out to ground. There should be 2 wires to the fuse at least, with one for the front and one for the back. When you unplug the short, the flashing test light will go out. Then try to narrow it down from side to side. Etc. Look expecially where there had been any accident damage, where a wire could have been pinched and the insulation cut. look where wires have to go through holes in sheet metal, where sharp edges can cut insulation.
Disconect the battery and ECM for FOUR DAYS then reconect the ECM and BATTERY. Let it sit for another four days without turning anything on. It should start but will run rough for about 200 miles as the ECM relearns the system. I had the same issue and that is what fixed it.
