Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX im happy to offer you some assistance

Customer:

OK

ksengage31 :

Your information says you have power to the fuel pump with the key on? Did you measure at the pump with a voltmeter or a test light?

Customer:

YES

ksengage31 :

Ok, im going to suggest you check the ground leading to the fuel pump as well. If it seems in bad condition, try running a new ground wire for testing purposes. This is often overlooked, you need a good ground there as well.

ksengage31 :

also, please check the condition of the fuel pump relay, if you have not already. They should generally be replaced hen installing a new pump anyways, and it may be worn to the point where not supplying good voltage.

Customer:

Customer:

I REPLACED THE RELAY

ksengage31 :

no, the filter does not require a ground.

Customer:
