Next, check for battery power on the blue wire at any of the fuel injectors with the engine running. Power is provided to all fuel injectors, fuel pump control module and fuel pump itself from the fuel pump relay. The fuel injectors are fired by the PCM grounding each injector, one at a time.
2. Monitor the voltage of the Blue (BU) wire at any fuel injector connector when the vehicle is driven, to verify that battery power is maintained as the vehicle is driven, to determine if there is a potential failure of the circuit from the fuel pump relay to the injector connections.
