To reiterate=> in this thread=> the IGN switch, relay and pump itself were suggested as the most likely culprits...and like the subject says:
Nope, nope and nope.
Once I cleared away all the stuff and accessed the top of the FP the real villain here became too obvious:
That horribly absurd intermediary connector between the wiring loom and the FP body itself (the one with the square plastic and 4 round connectors) had shattered at some point, and the PO had used what (?) to fix it ????
Well guess what=> it fell apart, the conectors were loose, oxidized, carbonized, and that was quite enough thank you.
Separated the mess=> gave 'em a good squeeze or three and then worked 'em to clean the krap off - and Presto!=> running Aero again.
So, my spare FP will stay with me for now as well as the needed tools, but once that stooopid bit of wiring is replaced I suspect it'll be A-OK until the next (actual) FP needs to be installed.
As we say around heah:
JEEZUM CROW !!!
