I have already checked fuse 105
Curious how you knew to check 105.

At this point I don't know which of pins 1 and 2 of the relay is circuit 85 and which one is 86.
I think they are numbered on the fuse-and-relay block
fuse 57 ... the pump came up ... By the way the day that this happened we had a long unusual raoning for few days. I think I know where from the water gets in. Will seal soon. 馃檹馃檹馃檹馃檹馃檹
Is 57 the fuse on the line supplied to the pump? I am troubled because if that fuse was the issue, your bypassing the relay should not have solved the problem.

The next step in your troubleshooting would have been to check the functioning of the relay. They do fail.

It is worth it to patiently do diagnosis. Your fuel pump, costly as it was to your back, is a minor expenditure in the scheme of things. I wasted about $1300 on an ECU and throttle body before I figured out what the root cause was, and if I had been more methodical I would have avoided that pain. When you go to the doctor, they (should) do a bunch of tests before replacing parts.

Water intrusion is a terrible weak spot on the GL, rather ironic for a supposed all-terrain vehicle. It penetrates at the roof rack mounts, the rear pana roof, the sunroof, and the taillight lenses. If you are in a rainy climate and store the vehicle outside, you are living on borrowed time ... as are we all 馃檹
