Hi Garry, my name is ***** ***** do you know what happened to the pump, is it just the motor not turning, its not something like a bunch of stuff in the fuel tank and its clogged up, have you inspected the tank ? other then some weird voltage spike but even at that, you don't see that much on 12 DC systems, only things that are sensitive to that is light bulbs and regulators ??
