No power to the fuel pump on 87 X1/9. Is there an inline fuse?

    I have tried to move the flap in the airbox and still no 12 volts.

    I knocked the wire off the fuel pump installing the coolant hoses. Maybe I blew the fuse. The manual does not list a fuse for the 87 fuel pump. I am still looking.

    Fuses G (10A) and W (7.5A), both labeled "I.E." are listed in the owners manual as "electronic fuel injection" but nothing more specific. Have a look at them and if good, do as Bjorn says and break out the FI troubleshooter.

    I AM AN IDIOT! I was using a blue white striped wire to power the pump instead of the correct green wire. Talking to Walter found the problem after many wasted hours/days. The starts right up now.

    Not an idiot, you got tripped up by the two wires in that area of the engine compartment that appear to be "extra" when the car is not equipped with A/C or if the A/C system has been removed. The Blue/White wire in that area goes to the A/C Frost Prevention Valve, while the double-green wire is there for the idle step up electrovalve. You can see the double-green one and the correctly connected fuel pump wires in this pic.
