First trace the fuel pump fuse to the battery and, make sure you have power to the fuse you may need to replace the old wire from the battery to the fuse, if the power goes to the system relay but, doesn't come back out; replace the bad relay; still not working? next:
Connect a long 18 gauge wire between the fuel pump + or, positive (hot) connector and, the battery momentarily and, listen for the fuel pump motor to "buzz" If it does remove the wire and follow the hot wire up to the hidden relay; jump the relay, if it buzzes the fuel pump; replace the relay, if jumping the relay didn't work and the fuel pump still does not "buzz" check the pump ground: connect a wire between a bare, unpainted area on the frame and, the - negative (ground) fuel pump connector start up the fuel pump, normally if it now buzzes replace the ground wire or, scrape the place where the ground wire attaches to the frame and, re install the ground screw.

but here is an extract:

Ranks are calculated by dividing the total value of the ratings cast on an Expert's Solutions by the Expert's number of rated Solutions. Unrated Solutions, Premium ratings, and Live Chat ratings are not factored into Experts' averages.

i have posted solutions for 43 problems as i write this, yet the window with my rank in it is only saying 34. also every time i post a solution it is upgrading me to wiz rank, then after a little while it changes back to master. i only have had i person rank me instead of the 5 it says i need to get to wiz. what is going on?


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue
You need to have atleast 5 votes with the valid percentage ranking to reach the wiz rank.
I would suggest to check the recent comments section and follow up with customers who have responded back to you. This surely helps and customer would surely rate you if you do an end to end follow up.

In case of your ranking alternating between wiz and master, i would suggest to either ask the fellow experts at experts lounge or mail your concern to community MOD Lauren. Her email id is lauren@fixya.com. She would get back to you on this and trust me she always guides you in the right direction (my personal experience)

Keep posting solutions and surely it will not be too long that you would reach the Guru Rank.

All the Best.
