New to the forum here.  Had BRATS, now a Turbo Wagon.

 

Given to me, with not to much input from PO.  Trying to get started.  Have spark, compression, sounds good on the starter.

 

Fuel pump not running on key start.  Does run with pressure when jumped.

 

No injector click when on start.   Checked fusible links, OK.  Fuses OK on the ignition on position.

 

Where should I look for a relay or other item not working  ??  

 

All help really appreciated.

i don't know if this is the same on the turbos, but i know on old gen wagons there should be a relay right above the hood latch. it is for safety in case of an accident it will cut fuel. i believe the relay is black or blue

Could not figure out how to pull codes.  Disconnected the plug, nothing came up that showed codes.

Connect the greens under the dash to read codes from the ECU LED.

 

I would check the ignition and fuel pump relays under the passenger seat for power and function,

 

Fuses and fusible links too,

You stated that the fusible links were ok but if didn't verify that good power was getting to each side of them then you need to do that.

Did not find any relays or anything under the passenger seat or drivers seat.

 

Do find two relays in engine compartmant over the passenger front wheel.  Are these for the fuel pump or injectors  ??

Cannot identify from manuals.

 

Found no relay near the fuse block, only the seat belt relay, silver, round, having four pins.

 

Any help or clarification   ??

 

Sure would like to hear it fire up  !!

Found the answer  !!   Relays under the passenger seat, under carpet were rusted beyond function.

Replaced both from Oreillys, at half the NAPA price.

 

Plugged in, started up  !!  Runs fine.  Just needs a little limbering up.

 

Thanks to all that helped.

Thanks for the update and glad to hear you got it going. Another Soob back on the road. That's, a good thing.
