      There is only two to three screws to remove, it's very simple. Make sure to have a specific information about the part such as a side ( left or right ), finish etc....

      With key on, wipers on low check for voltage on gray wire at wiper motor module, that should be low speed voltage. If no voltage, suspect the wiper switch. If voltage and no wiper action, suspect the wiper motor/module.

      I can't rule out wiring circuit issues, at the moment?

    How do I replace the fuel pump? Is there an access under the rear seat?
    The fuel pump either reads full or empty. Nothing in between that. The check engine light is also on. This never happened before I lost my fuel gauge

      Several possibilities; worn fan belt, faulty belt tensioner, faulty belt idler pulley.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the belt tensioner from around $45.00 for your vehicle.

      There are many electrical wire harnesses that run under the carpet on both sides. Look for electrical issues caused by corrosion. Airbag fault codes could be a issue as well. You may luck out or they may developed over time.

      Is there fuel ?
      Have an assistant to turn on the ignition switch, while you listen to the fuel pump running for 2 seconds from the uncap fuel tank filler. No noise, take the next step.
      Try giving the bottom of the fuel tank a few whacks with a flat piece of wood or a rubber mallet while another tries to start the engine. You have a 50/50 shot at getting the pump going again and the vehicle starting. if it starts as a result of the whack then it confirms the bad fuel pump.

      Note: Spray some aerosol starting fluid into the throttle (CAUTION: Starting Fluid is Extremely Flammable!). Then crank the engine. If the engine starts, you do NOT have an ignition problem

      Is there a spark ?

      If the engine has no spark, check for voltage at the coil positive terminal when the ignition key is on.

      If there is voltage, the problem is on the trigger side of the coil (pickup, crank sensor, ignition module or primary wiring circuit).

      If there is NO voltage at the coil, the problem is on the supply side (the ignition switch or ignition wiring circuit).

      If the coil has voltage, the problem may be a bad high voltage output wire from the coil to the distributor, hairline cracks in the coil output tower, or cracks or carbon tracks inside the distributor cap or on the rotor.

      Its already armed. Just because you pull on handle it shouldn't go off. If you were to unlock latch assembly with no key as in a forced entry. Then alarm would sound.
