I have a '70 El Camino. I wanted to run the power wire to the relay for the fuel pump from the Accessory terminal. I have no power from the accessory terminal. I wanted to turn the fuel pump on with the key. Is it O.K. to use the IGN. I currently have two Autometer gauges powered from the IGN. Can this all be run from there with no fire hazard?

Won't have a problem with a fire hazard because you tied into the IGN terminal. If you want to be extra safe, add another fuse in-line on the input to the relay coil. This can be added under the dash and won't be as affected by heat. If the relay wire gets damaged somehow, the smaller in-line fuse will blow faster than the larger one in the fuse block.
Your problem with the ACC terminal may be a blown fuse or dirty fuse clips. Check the radio fuse. Believe this is the one that puts power to the ACC terminal.

Thanks John. The Radio fuse is blown. So I just change that and the ACC terminal should work? Thanks again for the help it is greatly appreciated.
