Default Stalling problem...

Hi folks.

I'm posting this for a friend who has an older model impreza (mid-90's). We're having an issue where the car is throwing a CE light, giving the reason as a problem with the fuel pump relay system. The car semi-stalls intermittently while driving, in any gear, at any speed above idle. The car dosent stall completely, though -- the tach drops to zero and quickly jumps back up again.

Would it be a bad idea to hard-wire the relays (so that the circuits they control are always "on") just to see if that is the problem? Any other ideas on what it could be? I think he has replaced the relays once already.

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks...

Hardwiring the relays won't hurt anything, just be sure to rememer to undo it. I would suspect an electrical problem, because of the tach that suddenly goes to 0 at the same time as the stall/stumble. Look for anything that would be common to both the fuel relay and the tach(or ignition system) like power feeds from the ignition switch for example.
