Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 12 volt electric dump hoist with power up and gravity down, The pump will lift but not come down.
Either the ram is very new and tight not enough weight to bring it down oror the valve in the pump is not going across to let oil back into reservoir, usually need to power this across.

Hi if this is a 2.2 water pump then you can do it without lifting the engine remove the alternator
it's just as easy to lift the engine
remove the overflow bottle
use a 2x4 and a jack under the oil pan
remove the upper motor mount
jack the motor up

SOURCE: dodge 3500 diesel lift pump
When the key is turned to the start position, the pump should run for about 20 seconds. Do this 3 or 4 times to prime the pump.
If it still doesn't start, the bad lift pump may have damaged the injection pump. Crack a fuel line loose (don't remove it) and turn the engine over, you should have fuel at the fitting.

could be a bad earth or [ground]
the power wire ma be brocken or have a loose or dirty connection
you neeed to trace it along its lenght to determine the fault!
