Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck

Open Question

2001 Dodge 3500 Diesel new tank fuel pump stopped running

Installed a new pump in the tank two weeks ago and drove it twice went about 100 miles total. on the second trip the truck just shut down. would not crank back up. We took the pump back and replaced it. put new relays in another new filter also. And even checked to see that the front pump was working. when the switch is on and the tank is all in the rear pump will not pump. But if the pump and tank are out of the truck and electricity is applied the new pump works.Is there some kind of sensor I am over looking? Something that would cause the truck to shut down after those two trips? The reason we changed the first one was because of the sending unit by the way.

it doesn't have a fuel pump relay it has a fuel pump control unit and it is located on the chassis back quarter drivers side near the tube cross member for chassis on top of chassis rail near bed mount. locate the rear springs front perch and it will be above that on top of rail.

hope this helps. good luck and please ask any question you have.

No fuel pumping


Is the fuel filter facing the right way? Observe the arrows on the filter body for correct installation direction.

Check the fuel heater and the intake air heater.
Your injection pump or your injectors may be getting weak
There may also be a leak in the fuel system that is allowing air to enter it.

04 dodge diesel cuts out while driving at speed


Hi. I had the same problem on my 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins. I went to the dealer and they did a bunch of diagnostics and they replaced my fuel pump. At the same time they put in a retrofit kit that moved the fuel pump to the inside of the gas tank. I have not had the problem since. The cost was about $1,200, but my 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty covered it and I had to pay the $100 deductible.
