I guess it might be time buy one. I tried to figure it out with jumpers. No luck.

Vehicle harness connector wiring looking into the connector left to right:

Pin 1 Black/Orange - Ground
Pin 2 Dark Blue - Fuel level
Pin 3 Dark Green/Black - Power

Left to right looking at the connector

Here is a link to the on line Factory service manual:

And here are a couple threads:

Ok. Wiring is handled. Now the issue. Pump runs but no fuel from outlet. I heard it spraying inside of the tank. Pulled the pump hatch and I really don't know what to look for. And should there be a gasket for the rectangle hatch?

Ok. Found the fuel problem. The bottom of the fuel pump snapped off. I get fuel and starts right up. But it's racing at high RPM. Could it be a throttle position sensor? I did remove the fuel rail to install new exhaust headers. Any ideas?

Ok. I did a pretty thorough cleaning and rebuilt the vacuum lines coming out of the valve cover. Did a few minute battery reset. Still the same thing. Starts but idles at over 5000rpm. Kinda scary. The fuel pump issue was a broken pick up tube. Replaced new pump again and that problem solved.

That is a stuck throttle. I don't think a vacuum leak or an iac issue is capable of going over 3000 rpm

Cable seems to move freely. Is it just time for a new one? Or take it out and clean and use dry slide(graphite)?

Yup. In going to replace the the IAC motor and the TPS and try again. All original parts I'm replacing on a 114000mi YJ.

Dont throw parts at it. Check the codes. 5000 should never be set by electronic control. No sensor failure will cause an idle that high. Not for any reason. If the throttleplate is closed you should not have enough air through the throttlebody to run it at that high of an idle. To do that you must have a huge vacuum leak and even then I dont know how it is possible. Put your hand in front of the throttlebody and see if it stalls. Are you 100% sure that plate is closed? You need to look around for a vacuum leak. It has to be a major one. Brake booster, PVC, etc.
