99 Turbo voodoo

So I went to fire up the 99 Turbo and get it ready for the Eurowerks show on Friday. The fuel accumulator doesn't work, so it takes awhile to start while the fuel pump gathers some fuel.

The last time I drove it, it didn't fire up when I tried to start it again. But there only a half a tank of gas, and I thought that might be too low with the accumulator not working.

So today I went and got some gas, filled the tank, and tried to start it. Cranked, and cranked, but no start. And the battery was almost all the way down.

So I whipped the convertible around and jumped it. Still cranked, no start. No fuel smell after all this time.

So on a whim I walked over to the fuse box, and of course it has the old style ceramic fuses. I took the fuel pump fuse, twisted it maybe a quarter turn in the slot, and tried to start the car.

Boom, cranked and fired right up.

Voodoo.
