96 Grand Cherokee fuel pump change
I'm new here and have a question. My daughter has a 96 Grand Cherokee that won't start. I've pretty much narrowed it down to the fuel pump. Jumpering around the relay gets no response from the pump and I get no pressure at the fuel rail.
I started looking at what is involved in dropping the tank to change the pump. The wiring connector for the fuel pump is difficult to see and it has some sort of keeper that I can't figure out. The new pump is on order and I guess I'll see how the plug comes apart when I get it but I wanted to get a headstart and drop the tank now.
Any suggestions on how the plug comes apart would be greatly appreciated.
Also the diagram of the power distribution center (fuse/relay box under the hood) in the owner's manual (and the Haynes manual) has a different arrangement than what is in the vehicle. The manual shows all the relays and fuses in two lines, the box in the car doesn't look anything like that. This causes me a problem because the fuses are not labled. I can't tell which fuse is for the fuel pump. The relays are labeled inside the box cover but the fuses are not. Do I have an early 96 model that maybe has a 95 model relay panel?
