My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This can be due to an issue with the fuel pick up in the fuel tanks being restricted.There is a sock filter in the tank(s) that can plug up and cause this issue here.I would have the fuel feed lines checked for any restrictions causing this fault needing corrected as well as any leaks.Check to see if any fuel is coming from the tank(s) and if no fuel is found then this can indicate a restriction in the tank(s) needing corrected here.If this is all o.k. let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
