the dashed boxes represent a portion of an assembly,
the solid boxes represent a complete assembly.
The lines on the drawings represent wiring,
the number or letter at the intersection of the assembly and the wire gives the pin number.
the carat/arrow thingies <<--^^ mean there is a connector.
the pin numbers on the drawing relate to a number that is on the connector.

c1 is the black connector on the pcm. c3 is the white connector.

the S numbers are splices and the G numbers are grounds.

These are the only pinouts I have for the fuel pump connector. Note that on the 93-96 pumps, if the fuel level sending unit is bad you have to replace the entire fuel pump assembly.

You are looking for 220 ohms when empty, 20 ohms when full.

Is there really an explosion risk? After all, there's voltage on those wires in normal use, and you can throw a lit match into a fuel tank and it won't explode - it'll burn, sure, but it won't actually explode.

there is no voltage on the sending unit contacts. a PCM circuit reads the ground potential and determines the signal to send on the CCD bus.

when you use an ohmmeter, it creates a circuit across the wiper arm. there is a risk that the meter circuit creates a spark in a vacant space, which is more likely to cause an explosion.

you need to figure out how to use the diagram i posted to verify the circuit from the pcm to the fuel pump connector and back to the pcm.

If the PCM detects a short or open in the fuel level sending unit circuit, it sends a message on the CCD data bus that will cause the instrument cluster circuitry to position the fuel gauge needle at the Empty stop.

if the circuit checks out okay, the gauge may be bad.
