Q: Looking for a wiring diagram

I need a fuel pump wiring diagram
My car has an automatic transmission.

As you no doubt have discovered, there is a plethora of wiring diagrams on the internet. The trick is determining whether the one you’ve found is the correct one for your car. To get a diagram that is properly indexed so that you know you have the right one may mean purchasing a factory manual or going to a data source like Alldata or Mitchell. I believe that some of the franchises will let you buy a temporary subscription. If you want to take your chances with a random internet diagram, as I sometimes do, you can do some comparison with your car by reading off the color codes and terminal identifying numbers to see if they match up. If you are trying to fix a dead fuel pump, use of a proper scan tool can speed that up. A designated scanner can use the diagnostic port to command the fuel pump on so you can troubleshoot the system. If you decide you want to hand this job off, you can contact Your Mechanic to have a technician come out to your home or office to check out your fuel pump and let you know what it will take to solve your problem.
