2005 PT Cruiser Convertible 5-speed 2.4 engine... I don't…

2005 PT Cruiser Convertible...

2005 PT Cruiser Convertible 5-speed 2.4 engine... I don't have 12 volts to my fuel pump that I just replaced. It'll start/run if I spray ether into the throttle body - and the pump isn't getting the power to it.. Is there a 're-set' on this model?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

Put the new one in this afternoon

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Convertible yourself? What have you tried so far?

Fuse & relays checked - ok I have no power coming

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Don don't think so

Tell me, can you hear the fuel pump come on for about two seconds when you turn the key on to the run position?

No, getting nothing when turning on key.

Okay, the PCM (engine computer) is responsible for turning on the fuel pump through the fuel pump relay. If there is a fuse blown that powers up the PCM, or if the PCM is "dead" then the pump will not come on. So please check the fuses closely. Then see if you can get a scan tool connected to the vehicle and see if the tool will communicate with the PCM. If fuses are okay, but the scan tool will not communicate or link up with the PCM, then suspect a failed PCM and replace it.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
