its a littel frustrating but in the end IA just want it done right...

A mate (posted his car a while back) made the decision to get his done after he was riding in mine during the logging on previous motor.. he was there when it popped.... he took his car in that week to get the turbo swap done... it still hasnt been done... he is a little pissed off now... its sat in the exhaust shop for 2 weeks or so... I told him my exhausts may not be the prettiest but I get them done in an evening hahaha

fedex didnt leave a package yesterday just a sticker saying they will try again...... it was either my filter or my injectors... aaaagh couldve got some stuff done last night but alas I did nothing...

any electrical gurus out there??

My car left me stranded last night... got it running again by jumpering the relay connection between 30/87

the symptom I am having (among other stupid electrical things) is the pump will switch/run on ACC... (Ive also wired it thru a toggle switch not the ecu - ecu stopped triggering it)

but as soon as I turn the key the fuel pump is turned off and relay wont work, but if I jumper it it runs the pump?

I briefly checked all the connections..

here is how it went down... took a drive to put some miles on the motor.. got about 38miles into the drive and I lost pump power... limped to side of freeway.. called the builder and (he had nothing to do with wiring the car) and he walked me thru making a jumper wire etc.. got it running and drove it home no issues - other than of course the pump has constant power...

what should I be looking for...?? any ideas... Im stumped as my electrical skills go as far as licking a 9V battery and get a zap... (sadly I have done a bunch of wiring so I have basic knowledge and have managed to get so far for now.. but when it comes to more depth in the understanding of it all... blank)

I would be tempted to just wire the Pump on a separate ignition circuit so that it goes on & off with the Key.

the pump was originally wired in thru the haltech ecu but the wire for some reason started not working right that trigger the relay.. so we skipped it from the ecu output and I actually have a toggle switch.. so it will run with key on only if switch is on...

the thing is the relay will work but as soon as I try to start it the relay cuts off and cuts the fuel pump power... but I can put a jumper wire right in and it runs the fuel pump.. oh and I can change the relay and itll run the pump - until I crank the key and it cuts it again... Ive tried good quality relays and cheap... same thing...

it just happened randomly so...

hopefully my neighbor is going to come by this week.. older retired guy who is an electronic and general mad scientist kinda guy... haha

I can run the car with the jumper in but not really how I want to do it...
