Hello my name is ***** ***** there are no codes I would check the fuel pressure, the fuel pressure should be at least 45 psi. The fuel pump is mounted on the left frame rail under the drivers side. Also make sure the inertia switch is not tripped also. Let me know what the fuel pressure is, thanks Scott

Where is the inertia switch and what is it?
Expert:  Scott W. replied 3 months ago.

It is located under the dash on the RH side, it opens up the fuel pump circuit electrically in case there is a crash to keep fuel from being pumped out all over the ground.
