I let the Spider sit for three days and tried to start it. It would just turn over but not start. Any suggestions. I was wondering if it might be a fuel pump or relay. Where are the relays located on a 1984 Spider?

Being an l-jet, if original, I would make sure the battery voltage is high enough to wake up the computer.

Computer

What are so indications that the battery is strong enough to wake up the computer? I keep the battery on a trickle charger when not in use.

If I recall correctly the CPU needs at least 10.5v while cranking, test first to make sure you have at least 12v while it is just sitting there.

How old it is?

It has a new battery in the car. 1984 Spider. Turns over great. Where is the relay and fuse for the fuel pump located so I can check it.
