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.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Check and make sure all fuses are good in all fuse panels.If any fuses are found to be blown at all this can cause this type of fault here.If all fuses are checked and found to be o.k. check the wiring to the fuel pump relay for any issues.I dont show a diagram on this model myself but usually you should have two powers at the relay with the key on and a ground at the relay either with the key on the first two seconds or when cranking over the engine.If you have these signals I suspect the relay is at fault needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
