 The battery checks good, have no idea what the charging rate is as I haven't 
got it to run.
 The main relay under the back seat clicks when the ignition is turned on. 
Post 85 goes to ground; Post 86 goes to fuze box; Post 87 goes to the fuel pump 
relay Post 86 and two wires go to the Brain; Post 30/51 goes to the battery.
 The fuel pump relay under the dash has Post 85 going to the computer; Post 
86 going to the main relay Post 87; Post 87 going to the fuel pump and Post 
30/51 going to the fuze box.
 I suspect my problem has something to do with the fuze box and the way it is 
wired. I guess with by lack of knowledge in reading schematics I am not sure 
about what is the top row and what is the bottom row on the fuze board. I am 
also not sure if I have the jumper in the correct position or not. I have it 
running from position 7 to position 8.
 I sure can use some help on this, any information or ideas will be 

Yes, the relay wiring sounds correct. If you go back into the engine 
compartment, on the front wall, left side, there should be a wire with a connector on 
it. If you ground this wire, it should bring on the fuel pump. It should run 
all the time as long as the key is on. I just went thru this earlier this month 
/ late last month.
For the fuse box side, you really want to have the ECU connected to the coil 
fuse, and see if your jumper goes to the other wire you're using to supply 
power to the relay. To be honest, I don't really know which one is supposedto go 
where, but I know you want the ECU on whenever the key is on. I hope this
