Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

The code P1693 is telling you that there are codes in the ECM. The code P0230 is for your transfer pump. Now you said the factory lift pump that was bolted to the drivers rear of the engine has been removed and you have converter it to the In-Tank pump? if so there should be a fuel block in place of the lift pump also the connector should go into a adaptor to a relay which powers up the In-Tank lift pump. If the connector is not connected that is why your setting the P0230..
