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

It has 3 pumps, one lift pump in each tank and one high pressure pump on the drivers frame rail. You should be able to feel the high pressure pump run with your hand. Each time you cycle the key you should feel it run for about 1 second. I've see many ground issues to the pressure pump.
