Q: No power to fuel pumps on jeep wagoneer

asked by on

My 1986 jeep wagoneer was working fine until it wouldn't turn on. I tried putting carburetor cleaner and it'd almost start or at least run for a few seconds and turn off.the previous owner swapped out the engine for a 95 camaro but kept the carburetor and for some reason had 2 fuel pumps, one electric next to the tank and one in the tank, but the problem is when i turn the car on you can't even hear the electric pump run at all. i changed the fuel pump and now its not even cranking you just hear the sparks and battery. i'm not sure whats the problem because afterwards my battery started dying cause i left the car open and was working on it the whole day so now I can't diagnose where the problem is really coming from. If you could help it'd be a blessing, I don't know what else to do.

My car has 163000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
