I have not checked the power at the fuel pump. I'll got get a voltmeter tomorrow and check it out.
It's a fuel injected 2.3 I believe.
OK, sorry to be getting back to you so late in the day. I only had a little bit of time today between class and jobs, but I did get a multimeter and took the inertia switch off.
Testing the inertia switch connector while cranking it was definitely getting power. What's a good reading to get on this?
I tried jumping the connector with a paper clip and got nothing different when I cranked the truck. Also, I don't have a check engine light when I turn the key, only the seatbelt light, emmissions light(which goes off) and the E-brake light.
Also, I'd like to go ahead and rate your service as excellent and get you paid, but if I do so now, can I continue this conversation?
Ok, I've finally had time to mess with the truck, and I'm very confused. I've got power going to both wires coming from the inertia switch while cranking, i've got power coming from the relay while the key is on, but I've got no fuel pressure at all when cranking. Could there be an open circuit in there somewhere? If so, where should I start looking?
Alright, I've checked the fuel line coming from the tank. Previous to changing out the fuel pump and filter, I had drained the line the reservoir between the tank and high pressure fuel pump. I discovered that that the reservoir and the fuel filter were both filled with fuel. This would indicate that fuel is getting from the tank to the high pressure pump and then to the filter.
The truck is still not starting and when I press the pin in the Schroeder valve while cranking, there's no gas spraying out.
