No eléctrical power to fuel pump

My car has 165000 miles.

Hello there, many faults will cause your 1985 RX-7 to not have power at the fuel pump. The most common faults are the ignition switch, a shorted wire, improper ground, or a faulty fuel pump. The first step will be to check the wiring visually to ensure it is in good condition and not broken going to the fuel pump. A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose the loss of power and follow through with any needed repairs.
