Re: 96 Fuel Pump Problem
On my '95, looks to me like the electrical connection to the tank comes out the top of the tank, toward the front of it, wraps down to a frame crossmemeber and right there it has a connector. It is located right above and just to the rear of the pumpkin, attached to that crossmember. It is definitely a disconnect.
somenone mentioned multiple pumps, but on the newer Broncos, I think we only have one in-tank push style pump.
also, when mine went out, it did not just go out. They usually give lots of advance warning that they are not pushing the desired pressure they should be. This results in problems starting, or staying started under extreme conditions, such as very hot weather, high altitude, etc.
Make sure you are changing your fuel filter often.
