Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

The most common problem I see for this concern is the fuel pump relay failing in the interior fuse box. The relay is integrated into the fuse box and cannot be replaced separately. The repair is replacing the fuse box. Of course this would need to be verified by having the concern present and verifying no voltage present out of the relay when cranking the engine. When this concern is intermittent it can be very difficult to diagnose properly.

If you are satisfied with your answer, please take a moment to rate my service as you see fit. Experts are not compensated without a positive rating. Providing a rating does not close the question, you can reply or ask additional questions without incurring further charges.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
