Thanks guys, but remember, my engine did not cut off abruptly, as would be evidenced by a blown fuse. It sputtered and drove for about a mile before giving up the ghost. I don’t believe residual pressure in the fuel rail would permit such a scenario, but maybe I’m wrong.

At this point, I’d appreciate advice on a quick fix (jumper?) to get the pumps running so I may return to the comfort of my own garage.

Realizing of course, that a crash en route could result in fuel continuing to pump all over.

For now, I’ll look under the rear shelf and ID a source of switched power that I may drop through the floor to the pumps.

A half hour home, and diagnosis will continue.
