Today I tried helping out my old high school photography teacher, her father has a 94 Safari that hasn't run in about 4 years. It starts for a second on starting fluid but I can't hear the fuel pump at all. I tried swapping the relays but it didn't help. I noticed the fuel level gauge is far past the full mark. Anything else to check before changing the pump?

Pull the fuel pump and bench test it?

I left now, but I just read the fuel pump fuse is same as ECM fuse. Would a blown ECM fuse cause the check engine light to not light up at all, because it acted like it was burnt out when I turned the key to on.

Remember it's all about the idiot lights when you turn the key, you should have the check engine light with ignition on engine not running. Go's away in crank. You found your first hiccup.

I found the ECM b fuse was blown on the Safari, now the check engine light works again, no codes though and the fuel pump still won't turn on, so probably a dead fuel pump.

Today I am replacing the a/c system on my AstroCreep the compressor sprung a leak so it took a couple weeks to round up parts so now I start. Pulled the grill to replace hoses and components, think I will scuff and paint it

New shocks and after a long term relationship with the DMV, I was finally able to put on my 1976 Bicentennial license plates.
