I asked earlier how to keep my fuel pump fuse from blowing out and you said to connect a toggle switch to the grey wire from the battery if I didnt want to find the short, but I am to really sure the steps to take to do this, im a beginner on these type of things. So if you could can you tell me step by step.
Do you

Reply to your earlier question to send this to the person advising you. Sounds like he wants you to a procedure I am not sure of. Running a line from the battery to the pump may work, but make sure you also have an in-line fuse installed as well.

I do not know how to do this, or all of how this works, and I do not recommend it (not sure if it has a constant hot as well as one from the fuel relay switch, this is a newer car)but if you must then 1. Take some wire, 12 gage, and run from the battery (positive) to the inside of your car. 2. Hook up an in-line fuse then your toggel. 3. From the toggel run the wire back out and to your fuel pump. 4. Find the wire that go to the fuel pump and using a tester find the wire that is on the fuse that is blowing, do this by putting in a new fues, seeing if it is hot and removeing the fuse to make sure it is the one. Then once you have located the wire remove it as close to the pump as possible and hok up the new wire. All that said (typed) I suggest you donate $5 and have this question answered by a real mechanic
