98 OBS for me

Default No fuel, won't start, need help.

Hey, I'm very close to having my 98 OBS with the 2.2 fixed after it met a tree at about 20 MPH last October. My problem is that it won't start now. I know that the problem is that it's not getting any fuel, but I don't know why. Before it hit the tree, it ran perfectly, never skiped a beat, and never gave me any problems at all. It sat for about six months after the crash, and it's now finally back to the point where I can start it. I need to know the following:

1. Where the hell is the fuse for the fuel pump?
2. Where is the fuel pump relay?
3. If the fuel pump is shot, what's the easiest way of getting to it to replace it?

It's a 98 OBS wagon with the 2.2 (5-speed) again, sorry if there's already a thread on this, I searched but didn't come up with any answer that would help me. Also, the car is completely stock and now has a new timing belt and radiator along with a few other small parts.

Thanks in advance for any help, if I can get it running a video of a 2.2 with nothing but the Y-pipe could show up...

So I've found the fuel pump and it's either dead or there's some hidden and blown fuse somewhere outside of both fuse boxes. I have a new fuel pump coming in the mail and plan on switching them when it gets here.(Thursday-Friday)

If anyone knows if there is some hidden fuse, it's be great if they'd tell me where it is or if it's even there.

Thanks again.

did you hook up a voltmeter to the fuel pump leads? that's a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a new fuel pump.

In the couple of fords I've owned, there's an inertia switch that, when it's tripped(from a collision or bumpy road) will shut off the fuel pump. I don't know if 98 OBS's have that or not, but I'm leaning toward not. The fuel pump fuse should be in the engine bay or under steering wheel. I know in WRX's, there is a fuel pump relay in the passenger side footwell, but I don't think older chassis's have that.

There's no fuse for it under the hood or in the fuse box under the steering wheel. It might me very well hidden up in the dash under the steering wheel, but as best as I can see, there's no fuse for it.

I would hook up a volt meter to it if I knew which wires were the test points, but I don't. Also I was able to find a stock replacement new fuel pump on Ebay for about $35 shipped so it wasn't too bad.

I did go through both fuse boxes with a volt meter checking every fuse in case it was mixed in with the fuse for something else and not labled, but all my fuses are good.
