Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
I see that you have replaced some stuff but I dont see where you tested anything.
DID you test anything?
Can you get to the wiring at the pump? Thats where you need to test.
Are you getting occasional power or occasional ground?
Two very different problems with exactly the same symptoms.
My gut feeling is you got a pump at autozone but Im sure youre tired of trying stuff without testing so we will test it.
Again I ask can you access the wiring at the pump.
Do you have a multimeter?
OK. Backprobe the dark green wire with your red meter probe and the solid black one with your black meter lead and start it.
You should see voltage. Watch your meter while it runs till it dies.
When it dies you should lose voltage. If you dont the pump is bad.
For what its worth the sending unit gets its power from the PCM wheres the pump gets its power from a relay and ground from the chassis. There is no real direct link between the two.
You can contact me back after you try it. Im not much of a guesser.
To contact me after you test it just bookmark this page and return to it.
You can. But you wont know if it would run hooked up without it being hooked up.
If you want accurate test results you need to test it when its not working. WHen its working nothing will test bad.
