I dont think any of it has an inline fuse, other than the fuseboards and auxiliary fusebox...

Have you checked for a voltage on all pins of the harness that plugs into the pump?

I recon you probably have a broken wire or a corroded loom which is causing you the loss of power to the unit.

92 xr3i????

thought they stopped making them in late 80's

so not sure, but if fuel pump is under car, was common problem for wiring corrosion/cuts at the pump connection..i know they started fitting pumps in the tank around early 90's, which didnt suffer that problem but dont think xr3i ever had an in tank pump

Your right, they never had an in tank pump. I think the XR3i went on for a few more years in the Mk4 Escort guise. The Mk3 went up to 1990 or 91 if I remember correctly. I had a 1987 model with the RS Turbo kit, Ford Motor Sport Tiger Stripes and a few other modifications. As a 3 year old car as it was I used to love the thing. Unfortunately we have to grow up at some stage.

fuse box was a common fault...new ones were stupid money, if you go 2nd hand then you have to match the part numbers as they made dozens of different versions.

but i never had one that i couldnt wire a simple by pass into...cheapest and quickest way to repair
