Maybe you already know all this, but just in case you don't, the fuel pump in a fuel injected system is really just a little electrical motor that happens to pump fuel. it also makes a considerable amount of heat. if the tank is full this is not usually a big deal because the fuel soaks up the heat. if the tank is almost empty and you live in a warm climate and it's summertime, well you get the idea. running the tank down below a quarter especially when it's hot outside will contribute to the early demise of your fuel pump. maybe you didn't do that, and if you didn't i would say you have an electrical issue with the power or ground wires to the pump. hope that helps.

First you need to know that dodge din not make a F150. You have a 1500 dodge ram. (Ford is the F150) If you constantly run with the tank less than half full they are burning themselves out. You need to keep the tank at least 3/4 full. Also if you live in an area where they use oxygenated gas in the winter the constant adjustment on the fuel pump wears them out faster.

Fuel problems 97 jimmy


Yeah, The fuel pump can go bad . The normal warranty on the pump is 12 months or 12,000 miles. This is very rare . I would check if the fuel pump had a lifetime warranty.

I would also check the ignition switch, and all the fuses to make sure the fuel pump is the failure.

Good Luck
