Keeping this short. There is a Senior Citizen who was friend of my late
mother who I help occasionally that has a problem granddaughter that got in
trouble the other day with a dispute involving police and other people.
Suddenly her perfect running Topaz (grandmom) stopped running with no fuel
pump activity. Check fuses BUT - lifting the back seat I found a
disconnected wiring harness. White with about 6 or 7 female connectors and
wire was loose from the nylon threaded moorings (3) along the wire.
My question not having a manual or working on Fords: is this the fuel pump
harness connector? Question 2: if it is where is the male side of this
connector do I need to remove the back of the seat if this is the
disconnected fuel pump harness?
Oddly too, there was black tape on the ouside of this female connector
covering the last 2 or 3 female inserts.
Could this be something unrelated to the fuel pump. The wiring seems to go
If this IS the fuel pump harness I suspect someone came at night to the yard
familiar with Escorts/Tempos and yanked it to stop the car from running as a
kind of vandalism.
