What you have to do is check fuel pressure with a gauge.,. The pump only runs for 3 seconds when you cycle the key. Its computer controlled. Once the car is running the pump wll run full time.
Now even for us experience techs this could be a difficult fault to find. If your not getting feul pressure and no RPM you could have a bad crank sensor. Since you have installed an aftermarket part. Thers is no way for us to determine if you fried the computer by connecting to the wrong power source.. For all we know you may have a bad starter or a bad ignition switch or even a dirty battery teminal.. We would need alot more info to properly diagnose this. If you don't have a high end voltage meter you could fry the computer just by testing wrong

2002 Dodge Dakota v-6 won't start the battery so good the starter is good it turns over and cranks but nothing happens I tried starter fluid in the carb.


Here are the usual suspects:
stuck fuel valve/float valve in the carburetor.
clogged fuel filter. or fuel line.
defective fuel pump.
electric fuel pump may be just a blown fuse, or wiring problem. good hunting.

Fuel pump issues, car won't start, but cranks. I want to know where the fuel pump is and how I can see if it is working properly. How do you diagnose the fuel system issues.


the fuel pump is located in the fuel tank.

I assume you don't have a fuel pressure gauge so the first thing you can do is climb under the vehicle and disconnect the plastic fuel line where it connects to the metal line about in the center of the van up where the front seats would be. Have a drain pan under this area to catch any fuel and be ready to be sprayed if there is fuel pressure in the line. Safety glasses would be a good idea and you can wrap a rag around the line right before you fully disconnect the two lines to help avoid spraying gas everywhere.

keep the drain pan under the area of the disconnected line. Turn the key on but do not start the vehicle. You should see gas spray out of the plastic line. If you don't you're on the right track.

If there is no fuel, reconnect the lines and look back by the fuel tank. You will see the harness. find the dark green with white wire. It is the power supply to the fuel pump. Check for power on that wire. If you have power than you have a bad pump.

If you have any questions let me know. Thank you for using Fixya.com!

I have a 1997 chevy blazer and the check engine light will not go out the gas gauge stop working and It's not getting enough gas to the carbeurater sprayed starter fluid and it starts up the high beam...


if the check engine light is on then there is a code set in the ecm(computer) that you need to have pulled and diagnoised.if your spraying starter fluid and it starts then you have a fuel delivery problem,could it be out of gas,plugged fuel filter,bad fuel pump,injectors not being comanded to open by the ecm.this should help to get it running,

My Buick roadmaster 1994 won't start changed the fuel filter but that didn't help put a brand new battery in it and it is not the starter.


Have you checked the fuel pump or fuse? First check for a blown fuse. I belive that is an electrical pump, when you turn the key on with engine off, you should hear a slight whine. The whine is the pump turning on and sending fuel to the enigne. Another way to check is to hook up a fuel presseure gauge to the fuel rail on top of the motor. There will be a rail that conects the fuel line to the injectors the rail is near the spark plugs, there should be a "capped" connection on the end of the rail. Remove the cap, hook up your gauge and check the pressure. Pressure varies w/ model, but it should be above 20psi. If you don't get a reading with the key on that indicates the problem is with the pump or the wiring going to the pump. Do a quick voltage test with the pump connections if you get 12 volts the pump is bad, if not there is damage to the wiring, a fuse is blown or the solenoid for the pump is bad. Avg life for a fuel pump is 100,000 to 150,000miles
