1994 cadilac fleetwood that I am suspecting needs a new fuel pump
I have blow the fuel pump fuse maybe 3 or 4 times. When the car dies it's usually the fuse. It recently died on me again but the fuse is still good, Should I go ahead and replace the fuel pump or could this possibly be another problem?

You have a short in the wiring to the fuel pump.. Go back and check all the wiring you touched. you may have not routed the wires at the tank correctly and they are shorted (crushed).. SINCE IT HAPPENS SOMETIMES.. I WOULD put in a new fuse turn on the key start the engine and look at the wires near the fuel pump and move them to see if you can create the short and find it. you will know when you find it because the engine will stop running as the fues blows. Don't take anything else apart till you cure the first problem. The very worst thing it can be is a short inside the tank at the pump. Post and let us know what you find.
Sounds like a short somewhere in the circuit. If you are able check all wiring coming from the fuel pump for any chafed wires or loose connections check connectors and harnesses for corrosion or loose connection which can cause resistance. also check for any signs of melted or burnt wires or connectors. hope this helps some.
Locate the fuse box. Facing the engine, the box is located on the the right fender. The fuel pump fuse should be labeled, The fuel pump relay is Incorporated in the FI relay located under right center of dash. It is a metal relay usually bolted to the floor near the ecm. Good luck and hope this helps but first replace the the fuel filter since it's the easiest thing to do.
take negative side of battery off first then put the backend of car up on jack stands and secure the front end so it does not roll then take the gas cap off so you do not loose all your fuel then start loosing the straps on the gas tank you will need a floor jack and a piece of board so you don't put a hole in your tank and then lower the tank down be careful not to break any of the wires on top and then loosen the center ring and then you can get the fuel pump out also here is a number of a place that sells only GM parts Schram auto and truck parts 1-800-292-1032
