It is controlled by a relay inside the under hood fuse block, check to make sure the relay is good and the fuse for the pump is not burned out.

If the wiring is in order you can also try hitting the gas tank with a rubber mallet near the fuel pump with the key on and sometimes this will free them up, but is a sign that it needs to be changed.

Where reset switch for fuel pump is located


I know there is not one on the 96 models. I fought a fuiel pump related issue on our 96. There are several sensors that must be working before the fuel pump will run. Start with the crankshaft sensor, then look at the camshaft sensor, finally there is a relay that actually runs the fuel pump. The relay should be under the hood with the fuses.

Dodge dosen't use reset switches on the fuel pump circuit. The only company I know of that does is Ford and Ford companies like Mazda and Jaguar.

Hope helps.

if the relay seems to be fine and all fuse are good, and jumping power to opperate the fuel pump at relay works, then there is a broken wire from the ECU to the fuel pump relay, or the ECU is shot.

A final addendum to the 1996 dodge dakota...


Here's the procedure for checking the fuel pump. I would 1st change the fuel filter, 2nd would be to scan for engine codes (free service at most parts stores), then check pressure (on a cool day, below 70 degrees) Good luck, let me know what u find. Curt

Vent the fuel tank vapors by loosening the fuel cap and unplug the injector wiring harness from the main engine wiring harness. The next step is to attach an electrical jumper between a solid ground and the fuel injector terminal pin number 1. Next, connect an electrical jumper between the battery positive post and injector terminal pin number 2 for a period of time not to exceed 4 seconds. This serves to bleed down pressure from the fuel system. Install a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel rail service test port and energize the fuel pump. This will bring the system to a stabilized fuel pressure that can be visually verified on the gauge.

1996 dodge 1500 5.2 no fuel pump w/key on,relay good,


I would check voltage at the fuel pump relay, and check for resistance in the wirring from relay to pump. It is common for a fuel pump develope a dead spot as you describe it. Is what actually happens most of the time is that the pump gets week enough so that it will not start with fuel pressure load and run fine without load. Can not say for shure weather your fuel pump is bad or not as I do not Know What led you to the conclusion that it was not working. If you are confident that lack of fuel pressure was your trouble I would bet the fuel pump is the problem.
