My 96 Olds. Regency Elite will start and run but will at random times stall from not getting fuel. Then while I'm trying to turn it over I can tell my fuel pump is not coming on, but just when I think that the problem is the fuel pump it will start, something is causing the system to feed fuel to the engine randomly. I believe it's an electrical problem behind the dash, just behind the glove compartment. Can you HELP? Any Suggestions?

Well just to update you on the fuel pump problem, It was just as I thought it to be an "ELECTRICAL PROBLEM". I ended up taking the car to a good friend who owns a small Automotive Repair Shop in the Air Park Industrial called D.J.'S Automotive in Delaware, I gotta give em' The Reconition cause the mechanic he has working for him was thorough ! He ended up finding a grounding fault under the rug on the drivers side due to moisture in which he of course took the bad connector's out to show and give to me, not to mention not only was the fuel pump circuit in the the harness of wires faulted but my electric windows and 6 other circuits as well I wanted to share this with you cause sometimes you need a mechanic that goes the extra mile to get to the source problem and this guy did just that. 2 months ago I took the car to A car repair shop 'RAYCO' they had the car all day put the car on a diagnostic test and tested the fuel regulator said they verified voltage at the fuel pump charged me $90.00 and said they were sorry they could not find the problem, told me it was one of those thing where the car has to actually be in the middle of the problem to get to the source, All this after I explained that it was an electrical problem and had the car towed

I would Recommend them to anyone thanx D.J.'S !
