If there was a short in the fuel pump it would plow the fuse for that circuit.Simple things to check are: listening to see if you can hear the fuel pump come on and off when you turn the ignition key to the run position.
Because of the newer cars having fuel injectors they require fuel to be set to them at a much higher pressure.
It would be over 33psi but now we are talking about tests that require special tools.
Also check the mileage on your car. If its over a 100k miles you may need a new pump.

Fuel pump is bad. How much to replace?


It depends where you get the pump and where you take it to have it done if you're not doing it yourself. The pump could cost anywhere from $150 - $550. If you take it into a shop to have it done, they could charge you 4 - 8 hours of labor so depending on their labor rate, labor alone could cost you $240 - $800. The gas tank has to be removed in order to replace the pump, that's why the labor would be so high. These cars have a fuel pump fuse and relay so I would definitely spend a little time to check those first before you spend a lot of money replacing the fuel pump itself.

Good Luck!

Hi, I own a MB C230 Kompressor 1999 (123,ooo miles).Two days ago, check engine light came on. DTC was P0170 (fuel trim malfunction bank 1. I took out the MAF sensor and cleaned it using MAF sensor...


CODE PO170 - FUEL TRIM BANK 1 MALFUNCTION. POSSIBLE CAUSES TO YOUR PROBLEM. AIR LEAKS IN THE INTAKE MANIFOLD. EXHAUST PIPES OR EXHAUST MANIFOLD. FUEL CONTROL SENSOR IS OUT OF CALIBRATION ECT IAT MAF. LOW FUEL PUMP PRESSURE FUEL FILTER CLOGGED FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR FAULTY. ONE OR MORE INJECTORS RESTRICTED OR FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR FAILED. HO2S ELEMENT IS CONTAMINATED DETERIORATED OR HAS FAILED.LOOK FOR VACUUM HOSE DISCONNECTED BROKEN LEAKING OR LOOSE.CHECK THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT. SHOULD BE 4.8 - 5.2 VOLTS.IF SIGNAL CIRCUIT LOWER VOLTS LOOK FOR SHORT TO GROUND OR AN OPEN HIGH RESISTANCE IN CIRCUIT.IF YOU ARE 12 VOLTS FROM SIGNAL CIRCUIT PCM IS FAULTY.BEFORE SPENDING A LOT OF MONEY TAKE VECHICLE TO GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP.LET THEM TEST IAT AND MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR PARAMETER FOR THE CORRECT RANGE OR HZ USING A VARIABLE SIGNAL GENERATOR TO SEE IF IAT MAF SENSOR GOOD OR PCM FAULTY. THIS WAY YOU WONT SPEND TOO MUCH MONEY.

Having trouble with starting. most times is starts


Problem most likely won't go away, and it could strand you and cost a lot more to have towed.

The fuel pump can be tested by a competent mechanic.

Don't throw parts @ it hoping to fix it. Google your issue and do some research, you may find the answer online.

Is there another fuse box besides the one under the hood and by the driver side door. I was trying to see if there was a fuse I was missing, before I go and buy a fuel pump.


CHECK YOUR PCM FUSE WHICH IS FUEL PUMP RELAY FEED CIRCUIT.AND CHECK THE 10 AMP. IGN. FUSE TO SECONDARY FUEL PUMP ALSO.I WOULD GET A SCANNER TO CHECK FOR FAULTY PCM BECAUSE IT CONTROLS THE FUEL PUMP.THIS SAVE YOU FROM GUESSING AND SPENDING A LOT OF MONEY.
