Hi, I am looking for some help from any wiring experts on a wire I found spliced into the tan / white wire going into the fuel pump relay. Pictures and details are below.
Below is where a black wire is spliced into the tan / white wire at the fuel pump relay.
Below is the other end of the black wire which is so very neatly.....wrapped around the positive side of the ignition coil.
Below is the wiring diagram at the fuel pump relay. From what I can tell it looks like the black wire was spliced into the tan / white wire to get power and bypass the fuel pump relay. From what I see the tan / white wire goes from the relay to the fuel pump (along with some other locations). So from here I am thinking it was either bypassed because the relay was bad, or there is a break in the wire from the fuse panel to the fuel pump relay, or the fuel pump fuse was blown at some point and they wired it this way to get it running. I Just want to see if I am on the correct track in terms of tracing down why this was done so I can get the original issue fixed.
