    I have changed the filter, checked fuses, swapped relays and hear no pump when key on.

    The car will sputter when I use starting fluid, so fuel is the issue.

    The service manual specifies using a pump module removal tool.

    Is there another way? Tap the ring tabs?

    Thanks

    Better to use a brass drift than a screwdriver. A screwdriver might make a spark, which is not a pleasant thing to happen around a fuel tank.

    You can also make your own tool by bending two pieces of flat metal and bolting or taping them together. You can get the metal at Home Depot or Lowes or ...

    Yes, but if the screwdriver slips, there's plenty of metal nearby to hit.

    I used a plastic pry tool, I didn't want to bust any tabs off or crack the nut.

    No luck.

    New pump. still don't hear it click on.
    I left the seat and access cover out and I still hear no pump.

    I am about out of ideas.
    Pressure sensor?

    You blew two fuses? Did you replace with a larger fuse?

    Just the one fuse

    # 17 In the trunk. I went from 15a to 30a because that is what I had on hand.
    I will get a new 15a and replace it tomorrow.
