Question about 1996 Chrysler Town & Country
Turn key over,cant hear fuel pump come on
This has happend to me before. It could be one of two things:
1) Fuel pump fuse is out.
2) The brushes in the pump motor are becoming weak and have stopped in a spot where they are too worn to conduct.
1) check the fuse.
if that's not it, try this (it's worked for me and I was able to make it to the shop to get a new pump installed.)
2) Turn the ignition to the ON or RUN position, but be sure that the car is in park. Grab a rubber mallet and carefully get under the car (from the rear) and locate the fuel tank. Give the tank a few raps with a rubber mallet. This will jar the tank and hopefully break the brushes free from the 'dead' spot. if it works you will hear the pump begin to hum. Then drive it to the shop.
