I think you spelled that out fairly well. Let's see where we can go from here once the results are in.

Success, I think! I cut the pink/wh wire and the jumper wire w/ 2amp fuse was still attached w good continuity. No luck starting car. I then disconnected the jumper wire and ran a new wire from relay (85) thru firewall to PCM, w/out a fuse, and soldered it at both ends. The car started up like there hasn't been anything wrong the past few weeks. I don't know whether the jumper wire connections were not good, even though there was continuity, or the 2amp fuse, which was good, on the jumper wire effected the circuit. No matter the reason it is running again. Thanks for all your advice/suggestions! Your help saved me hundreds of dollars! I know where to come in the future for help, hopefully not to soon!

Glad to help and do stop back in a few weeks with an up date just so we know if things are still working!

Thanks for making this interesting! You didn’t give up & you kept us posted along the way. So few people take the time to do that.

As Rupe said, please stop back later and let us know if all is still good.

Thanks for using the forum,
Garner

RE: '96 rodeo/passport fuel pump not getting volts
Well after putting it all back together it didn't start.? I turned the key and I didn't get anything, it didn't turn over or make a clicking sound and battery is registering 12-13 volts. I do think I heard the fuel pump turn on. The only thing that I did was solder and shrink wrap the two connections, tape up some wires, put the dash back together, and cover and secure the relay/fuse box in the engine compartment. Could it have been the pushing or pulling the wires to get the bottom cover on the relay/fuse box? When I finally started, I had the wire I replaced crimped, i soldered the wires and now it doesn't start. Is there certain solder that would effect the continuity of the wire? I checked all fuses and none are blown. Should I expect this is something different since the symptoms are different (it doesn't turn over)?

RE: '96 rodeo/passport fuel pump not getting volts
The type of solder is critical in the long run as acid core will eventually rot the connections. (usually used for metal, not wire) Plain solder (solid core) will not stick to anything and will need the addition of "flux" to clean bare metal. This can be bought separately for either metal or wiring. The most common type of solder to use for this would be "rosin core" which has the flux built into the solder.

At this point I think you should start diagnosis of the second issue from scratch, with special attention to what you may have disturbed during the project. I suspect going over the basics again will yeild a blown fuse or a plug pulled out, maybe on the ignition switch. You might even have a bad battery cable connection. Who knows till you look. When you find it I'm sure there will be a moment when you slap your forehead and go DUH! I think we have all been there before.

Good news it's running. Yes I did slap myself! Evidently I bumped my shifter into R therefore it would not start! At least now I know the automatic transmission mode switch is functioning properly. I guess this will start your Memorial Day weekend off w a laugh.
