Replaced fuel pump at dealership, The same day I picked it

Customer Question

Replaced fuel pump at dealership, The same day I picked it up we went to lunch came out and the car would not start. Called the dealer they towed the car. They called today and said the fuse box with the fuel relay over heated and will have to be replaced. The car is a 2008 Cadillac devilled DTS no problems before this. I dont think they checked the amps after installing the new pump.

Hey how are youI agree with you , they shout have done a parasitic drain test before replacing any parts , $900 to begin with on fuel pump is high would be $500
The fuse box issue is not uncommon but usualy see it on higher mileage ,any after market parts on vehicle ,like radio, lights remote start etcDid they scan it and give fault code report on receipt ,do you see the faults on them what are they
