Sometimes they are routed differently. The cord is large though, so you will have to look under the engine and find the heater itselft near the oilpan and follow it to the end. Also be sure it hasn't been ripped out. I know this is kind of vague, but unfortunately when they are installed people want them to come out in different places. The grill, the wheel well, etc. Thanks.

The part is a ' hall effect ' pick-up switch. it hasn't any magnetic properties of it's own. When the nodes on the distributer shaft crosses the switch it induces a slight current in the switch which then sends it to the igntion system to fire the coil. If there was a problem with the switch it would affect all cylinders.

This is entirely normal, a fuel pump will run only for a few seconds so that it is primed. If it ran continuously without the engine running pressure would build up inside it and would probably cause damage. After if has run for a few seconds after the jey is first turned it will , basically, switch off and wait for a signal from the sensor, communicating that the engine is cranking at whick point it resumes pumping in order for the engine to start.
Remember, the spark and fuel must coincide in the combustion chamber in order for there to be ignition, if you have no spark that may be the issue.
You can check whether fuel is getting to the plugs by cranking over repeatedly and quigkly removing a plug. If the pump is supplying fuel the end of the plug may have some fuel at the tip or may smell of petrol/gas.
You have to find out why fuel and spark are not coinciding essentially, in the combustion chamber.

The pump gets power from an engine control relay. The relay also powers the engine computer and the injectors. The relay gets power from a fuse and also from a fuseable link directly from the battery or starter.
