Yup,quit complaining and fix it.You think these are a pain,try some of the newer cars.
Check your hot wire for a short to ground.
Might be the culprit.

fixed the damn thing last night.it's grounded in the trunk on a brace,don't think anything in trunk can cause it to short.fuse just didn't short,it burnt through the fuse and wire. :D

So the positive side isn't grounded out?
That's good.
I ran an 8 gauge wire from the ground point in the corner of the trunk[driver's rear] to battery negative.
I then grounded the fuel pump to that.
Try that,it might help.

What you are experiencing in terms of frustration (I KNOW!!) is caused by

-------------YOU-------------
Not the car. Machines have problems and solving those problems using a specific algorithm to do so will complete your objective.

Jim, there is definitely something in the drinking water out there in Humble!

The car is always responsible for my frustration-especially since I became single.....
