Try looking at the fuse under the hood make sure your getting 12 volts at fuse.If fuse is good but no power try checking the fuel pump relay. you can switch the relay with another system that you know works. Lastly Check you Auto Shutdown Relay (ASD). If there has been an accident this relay will kill your fuel pump power. good luck.

Had the same problem on 98 Eddy Bauer we have. Have you noticed that it has a tendency to belch out hot air and the blower speed slows down mostly when you accelerate or give it a little more gas to climb a hill or an overpass or even pass somebody? If this is the case there is a pressure switch that's hooked into the intake manifold were it can sense a drop in pressure and when it does it drops the ac clutch out and slows the dash blower down till the pressure comes back up. JUMP IT OUT. All your problems will go away. Thats in there to unload the engine during acceleration and heavy loads and after the switch ages it gets trigger happy and lazy about closing to bring the ac back on.

Hello all,

For those of you that have or occasionally borrow trailers and look at the wiring plugs with disdain (I mean face it they don't make sense, grd is white, +12vdc is black, etc), this is for you.

Plug Types/Application
7 Way - RV Trailers, Horse and Utility Trailers
6 Way - Horse, Stock and Utility
4 Way - Utility Trailers

Columns are: Color, Function, Mark on the plug.

Seven wire Trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:

White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Yellow = Left turn/Brake - 5
Green = Right turn Brake - 6
Orange or Purple (not both) = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7

Recreational Vehicle:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Green = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Red = Left turn/Brake - 5
Brown = Right turn Brake - 6
Yellow = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7


Six wire trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards
Mike

Tip

It sounds like the vehicle is in theft mode,did you use a different key? Does the theft light blink really fast with the key off?If the passive anti-theft system has been activated the computer will have to be reset in order to get the vehicle running again.

Its good that the computer is not on fire. No spark could be the coil.

Hi there:
  1. Remove the door trim panel and speaker if applicable.
  2. Remove the screw from the division bar. Remove the inside belt weatherstrip(s) if equipped.
  3. Remove the 2 vent window attaching screws from the front edge of the door.
  4. Lower the glass and pull the glass out of the run retainer near the vent window division bar, just enough to allow the removal of the vent window, if equipped.
  5. Push the front edge of the glass downward and remove the rear glass run retainer from the door.
  6. If equipped with retaining rivets, remove them carefully. Otherwise, remove the glass from the channel using Glass and Channel Removal Tool 2900. Remove the glass through the belt opening if possible.
To install:
  1. Install the glass spacer and retainer into the retention holes.
  2. Install the glass into the door, position on the bracket and align the retaining holes.
  3. Carefully install the retaining rivets or equivalent.
  4. Raise the glass to the full closed position.
  5. Install the rear glass run retainer and glass run. Install the inside belt weatherstrip(s).
  6. Check for smooth operation before installing the trim panel.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like that piece of metal is an anti thief shield that has been bent at some time. Manipulate it so that there is some clearance.

first i would do a compression test and see if the pressure is still correct for the engine. this will explain most problems, compression testing kits don't cost that much, do the test and see if you have one or more low compression in the cylinders. if you have it could be a weak or sticking piston ring or its snapped rings, ralli sound does not sound good could be the timing chain and adjuster or the timing belt depending on engine number. if it is this dont un engine anymore and have this fixed or you will need a replacement engine.
