There is a DARK GREE/Black wire to power the fuel pump, check to see if power goes through it to the pump and check the ground by the DISTRIBUTOR. Do not pull the power distribution center.

Ok, so, you mean the 3 pin harness where the fuel pump plugs into?
There was no voltage unless I jumped the fuel pump relay
I'll check the ground tonight

Ok if you have to jump the relay tehre is problem there, either the pcm isn't telling the relay to turn on or the auto shutdown relay isn't sending a signal

How would I proceed then?

Well recheck your fuses and see if the fuel pump relay is getting turned on. It's one of the previous answers I gave you. Also check fuse 21 in power dist box, the 96 is wired a little different and this may be closer to that. But it still leads to pcm or auto shutdown relay that turn on the fuel pump relay.

As I said in the first post, it's a 1995 jeep wrangler (YJ) SE (the 4.0L model)

I am going to recheck everything today

When it fails to start, does the MIL illuminates when ignition switch is turned on?

I have this exact same problem. Did you ever come up with a solution? '92 YJ 4.0 no power to the pump with switch on, 7 volts on middle prong of the pigtail at the tank, but can run 12V directly to the pump and will run.

Igniton switch on would only provide power to the fuel pump for a brief period, 2-3 seconds, for priming the system.

The 7 volts is for the sending unit.

Remove the fuel pump relay. Ensure you have battery voltage at terminal # 1. Use a fuse wire to bridge terminals # 1 and # 4 and if fuel pump does not work, you have an open circuit between the relay and fuel pump. Fuelpump circuit works on a rather high current flow and opens in circuits are often due to overheated terminals at connectors.

Btw aaronmcd had tried swapping relays, did you do that? Symptoms and even faults can be similar but the cause or source could be different.
