do I know if the fuel pump is getting power at the plug from the end of the wiring harness what is the correct positive port on the plug I only have a 12 volt test light not an ohmmeter
Nissan Mechanic: Gary, Technician replied 2 years ago

at the fuel pump when cranking it over the black/yellow should show 12 volts and the solid black should be a good ground

if those both check out then the fuel pump is bad

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

The fuel pump relay is part of the IPDM. This relay is not serviceable. What is the problem with the car?

Do you know if you have any codes stored?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no no I do not know
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Well the first step for your issue to really determine the direction needed is to see if you can rent a scanner to scan the car for codes and see if you have any codes stored. Once we have the codes we can better determine the direction needed to resolve your issue.

I can keep this question open till you can do this. Does that work for you?
